Beyond Trauma: Conversations on Traumatic Incident Reduction
TIR, or Traumatic Incident Reduction, is a unique regressive, repetitive, desensitization procedure--highly focused, directive, and controlled, yet at the same time wholly person-centered, non-interpretive, and non-judgmental. Developed by Frank A. Gerbode, M.D., Gerald French, and others, TIR is best known for its use as an extremely effective tool in the rapid resolution of virtually all trauma-related conditions, including PTSD. TIR can also address many other DSM-IV diagnoses beyond trauma including: adjustment disorders, acute stress, traumatic bereavement, dysthymic disorders, major depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, somatization disorders, sexual abuse, and phobias.
