Treating Survivors of Childhood Abuse and Interpersonal Trauma: STAIR Narrative Therapy
Trauma exposure is common and can lead to various mental health problems, such as the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The aim of this forum is to discuss the use of Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) Narrative Therapy, in the treatment of PTSD. Dr. Cloitre, one of the developers of STAIR Narrative Therapy, discusses the rationale for the development of the treatment, provides an overview of the treatment components, discusses the use of STAIR Narrative Therapy in different populations (e.g., military) and its use in different settings (e.g., telehealth). Following Dr. Cloitre’s presentation, attendees asked her questions in a Q&A.
