The "Pointing Out Patterns" approach is a three-phase, nine-step process, which addresses the negative patterns of thinking and behavior that cause clients intrapsychic and interpersonal stress. The clinician rapidly observes and reveals these negative patterns, e.g., entitlement, intimidation, people-pleasing, etc., to the client, in a caring, supportive and straightforward manner, and assists the client in quickly diminishing, or eradicating negative patterns of thought and behavior.
Effective treatment of post-traumatic problems needs to include addressing the imprint of trauma on the physical experience of the self as helpless and in danger. Recovery needs to incorporate dealing with defensive efforts that helped ensure survival, incorporate physical experiences that contradict feelings and sensations associated with helplessness and disconnection, as well as an effective way of integrating fragmented memories of trauma. Experiencing physical mastery (as in yoga and specific body based techniques) often is necessary to initiate new ways of perceiving reality and promote new behavior patterns.
The majority of people who seek psychiatric care have histories of trauma, chaos or neglect. Advances in the neurosciences, attachment research and in information processing show how brain function is shaped by experience, and that life itself can continually transform perception and biology. Overwhelming experiences alter the capacity for selfregulation and memory processing due to changes in sub-cortical, i.e., “unconscious” levels of the brain.
