  • Identify distressing reactions.
  • Explore the impact that trauma symptoms have on daily life.
  • Gradually explore recollection of the crime, to reduce the intensity of emotional responses and symptoms.
  • Learn about common trauma reactions and phases in healing.
  • Feel hopeful and positive regarding the future.
  • Develop increased comfort when thinking or talking about the crime
  • Return to work.
  • Explore the impact on current and future relationships.
