Abstract

The Comprehensive Resource Model is a groundbreaking psychotherapeutic treatment modality with broad possibilities for use with the military veteran population. Objective: This article describes a clinical case example where this modality was used with a veteran presenting with severe PTSD symptoms. Method: Six 60-75 minute treatment sessions are described. Symptoms were measured before and after treatment and at a two-year follow-up using the Posttraumatic Diagnostic Scale, Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale, and Clinical Global Impression scale. Results: Findings showed that the treatment was effective at relieving symptoms of dissociation and flashbacks, even after two years. Some symptoms remained such as hypersensitivity to loud noises. Conclusion: The Comprehensive Resource Model, specifically the Resource Energy Grid, provided a safe, effective way to treat some very challenging symptoms. Studies on larger sample sizes would be necessary for generalizability. An Appendix by the spouse of the subject provides additional support for the findings.
