Abstract

Three case studies are presented illustrating an innovative treatment approach that integrated a juggling task with exposure therapy for clients who had benefited from trauma therapy but had residual trauma symptoms. All 3 clients reported benefiting considerably from adding the juggling task to the exposure therapy. The effects appeared to be rapid and minimally stressful and generalized to in vivo situations. I suggest that the treatment may have enhanced the response flexibility in brain circuitry involved with preconscious threat detection.
