I have just written a series of three posts on Arntz & Jacob's new book "Schema therapy in practice". This led to a query about when we should use direct exposure to trauma memories, when introduce more deliberate cognitive restructuring of linked trauma beliefs, and when add in more complex rescripting as, for example, described by Arntz & Jacob?
