A Contrapuntal Understanding of Recovery: Three Voices
Length: 44 minutes
Ross Tappen, MA, Tau Harris & Sara Markowitz, PhD
This panel presents a treatment experience in a state psychiatric facility from three perspectives. One presenter was the clinical supervisor; another presenter was the treating therapist, one was the client. The therapy involved a combination of issues: voices, understood using the Maastrict interview; intense anxiety and OCD symptoms, addressed with CBT. Group work in trauma and a voices support group also played a role. The special relationship between the therapist and the client -- presently a co-facilitator of the voices group of which he was a member -- are highlighted as well.
