    Relatively short-term approaches have been recommended for single incident traumatization and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD; APA, 1994); for example, cognitive behavioral therapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR; Foa, Keane, & Friedman, 2000; Foa & Rothbaum, 1998; Follette, Ruzek, & Abueg, 1998; Resick & Schnicke, 1993). There is no research showing that these approaches represent adequate treatment for survivors of chronic traumatization if they are applied outside of a phase-oriented treatment such as the one proposed in this book. In fact, severe comorbid psychopathology, a common feature of trauma survivors, emerged as the predominant reason for exclusion of participants across PTSD treatment efficacy studies (Spinazzola, Blaustein, & Van der Kolk, 2005).
