THE REWIND TECHNIQUE

CLOSURE WITHOUT DISCLOSURE 

Who can it help?

1. The survivor of the life-threatening event 

2. The onlooker, there but not being subjected to the trauma 

3. The person who heard about the horrible situation and then arrived to see it for himself/herself. He/she then imagines how it must have happened. (includes firemen, policemen, ambulance men, relatives etc.) 

4. The person who has only heard about what happened, imagines what occurred. And many more.



The benefits of non disclosure include:

  • Minimising the risk of the client being re-traumatised. 
  • There is no fear of disclosing sensitive information e.g. In the case of servicemen, for example, about deployment.
  • For survivors of rape and sexual abuse the benefit of not having to disclose details of the event to a stranger is self-evident
  • Minimising the risk to the counsellor of developing compassion fatigue, particularly for those therapists involved with heavy workloads.
  • The Rewind offers a way of permanently stopping the involuntary recall by filing the traumatic event, so it comes under control, Voluntary recall remains.
