The Enacted Narrative: A Group-Based Trauma Repair Approach for Veterans Who Have a Post-Traumatic Stress Injury

  • Marvin Westwood University of British Columbia

Abstract

In this 2017 John McKendy Memorial Lecture, Dr. Marvin Westwood discussed two group-based interventions for veterans who have a post-traumatic stress-injury—guided autobiography and therapeutic enactment—as a trans-theoretical model for change. Narrative-based therapeutic enactment has been highly effective for traumatized individuals—both military and civilian. The presentation included video clips illustrating how the approach is applied in work with Canadian veterans who have operational stress injuries.
