The Case of Grace: Strategic Rationales Underlying the Therapy Process
Keywords:Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Expressive Writing, psychotherapy integration, trauma case study, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), case study, clinical case study
This is a response to three commentaries to my case study of "Grace" (Pass, 2012), which utilized an integrative treatment for a survivor of a single traumatic incident. My therapeutic approach (the "AEDP-Writing" model) began with a foundation in Diana Fosha’s Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and then added Expressive Writing to the treatment in order for Grace to more directly process her trauma. Two of the commentaries are by practitioners and scholars of integrative treatment, Stanley Messer and George Stricker, and the third is by a pair of more empirically-influenced researchers, Kara Harmon and Michael Lambert. In the following response, I consider these thoughtful commentaries and offer my feedback.
