The Counting Method: A Treatment Technique for PTSD
by Frank Ochberg
Learn how to use a powerful technique for treating PTSD by watching an actual therapy session in the middle of a long-term course of treatment.

Part of the 2-Video Series: Explaining PTSD & The Counting Method
Traumatic memories invade the consciousness of those who suffer from PTSD, presenting a profound challenge for both the survivor and therapist. In this video, Ochberg explains and models his Counting Method, a simple yet effective tool used to master the flashbacks and intrusive recollections so common in PTSD.

During this extraordinary session, Ochberg works with a client with PTSD who is midway through a long-term, outpatient therapy. You’ll see Ochberg explain the Counting Method to her, guide and anchor her through the recollection of a traumatic event, and then discuss and debrief the experience with her. It is powerful to watch this client move into, through and out of the pain of the torturous memories she brings forth. Ochberg teaches us a valuable lesson on how to work safely, effectively and compassionately with such difficult material.
