Imagery Rescripting & Reprocessing Therapy

Format Training Course
Presenters Rob McAlpine
Description IRRT is effective with a variety of presentations including PTSD, depression, and some other anxiety disorders.
Due to psychological and biological factors involved in the laying down of traumatic memories, IRRT acknowledges that for some survivors of trauma, words-based therapy
alone is not enough. Utilising a range of verbal and non-verbal strategies, IRRT aims to replace schema and core beliefs damaged by the original trauma with a more adaptive set.
