Tri-Phasic Model

Judith Herman’s model: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1046/j.1440-1819.1998.0520s5S145.x

As you have examined this week, Judith Herman’s triphasic model can play a vital role in developing an appropriate response when working with children and families in crisis. By applying each phase, crisis professionals better develop a response to the crisis and perhaps an underlying trauma.
For this Discussion you will apply Herman’s triphasic model to inform your response to a service user. You will also analyze the need for treatment of PTSD for this service user.
To Prepare

View the case study in the Learning Resources. (attached case study)

By Day 4
Post an explanation of how you would use two specific aspects of Judith Herman’s triphasic model to inform your response to the service user in the case study. Then, explain whether you would refer the service user to treatment for PTSD and, if so, whether eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) might be a viable treatment strategy. Explain your reasoning using the Learning Resources and other scholarly sources that you found.
