Late Sequelae of Traumatization - Opportunities and Requirements for Inpatient Therapy (Abstract)

(Partially) inpatient psychotherapy for traumatized patients is essential if intensive, combined therapy is to be achieved away from a stressful environment. The example of a 65-year-old woman with a severe, chronifier stress disorder resulting from traumatization during and after the war is used to illustrate the specific approach used with elderly patients. It is important for elderly subjects to have control over the therapeutic procedure and to be subjected to minimum stress by the hospital routine, as well as for the analytic work to be supplemented by resource-centered procedures. Individual techniques (stabilization, work with the »inner child«, observer technique) are explained.
