Trauma Incident Reduction

”Unlike most other forms of psychotherapy, Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) is about extracting the pain rather than adding skills.” – Susan Sluiter

Trauma Incident Reduction (TIR) is a metapsychology technique that allows an individual to desensitize painful experiences and reduce or eliminate the negative impact of traumatic or overwhelming events that they have experienced. Also sometimes referred to as a client centered exposure technique, this method allows the mind to stop dealing with the event as if it were still occurring and complete the processing of the traumatic incident into normal memory. This technique has proven to be effective in addressing and resolving most of the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other unwanted sensations after the effects of trauma. Even individuals who do not have PTSD but still suffer from other painful life experiences can benefit from this technique as TIR can be successfully applied to almost all psychological problems and disorders. Resolution of symptoms can sometimes occur in as few as one or two sessions, however, a condition that has been in existence for a while, or that has many aspects, usually takes longer to achieve complete resolve. A single incident, such as a car accident, is typically resolved for the client in a few hours.

All clients will receive an orientation to the psychobiology of trauma, or what makes a traumatic memory different from ordinary memories. Clients are also fully oriented to the Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) technique, how the process works, how it differs from other techniques or therapies they may have tried, and most of all, the way in which the client is in complete control of their own process.
