"In the trauma dept, I've never been under the care of Colin Ross, but I do not like his books or approach because I do not think it is realistic to think one can heal without having to reexperience at least some of that which has caused the pain in the first place. However, that doesn't mean that docs/therapist working under his model aren't good. It's just my opinion."

I mentioned to Shelli that this approach was appealing to me because of the complete fear I would feel. My shrink who has treated vets with PTSD believes in dealing directly with the cause of trauma, my therapist has views similar to Dr. Ross. (Or she may be telling me that so I'm not afraid of her bringing up something). I've read that many memories (especially those of children) may not be totally accurate, but that doesn't really matter. I don't know if I have 'memories' anyway, I do experience flashbacks when triggered, they are confusing but I accept my therapist's interpretation because of things my family has said. Do you find dealing directly with your traumatic experience(s) helpful in your recovery? How do you find the courage to do so? Thank you so much, and again don't feel you need to answer. take care, judy
