Abstract

Heated controversy has arisen over the advisability of making recovery of traumatic memories a central intervention strategy in psychotherapy for adults survivors of childhood sexual abuse. This article addresses why such an approach can be deleterious, discusses alternatives to memory-focused treatment, and presents core strategies for facilitating self-management of intrusive recall in order to promote client autonomy and empowerment.
