Course Goals and Objectives


To present a successfully completed complex case study using BWRT Level 1 and Level 2 interventions.

The case involves an adult female with a history of complex trauma, emotional and personality problems, substance dependence, who was in relationship crisis. Her green-dyed hair, bright red lipstick, nose ring, visible body-piercings and tattoos projected her artsy yet very troubled character.

With so many burning issues needing addressing and extinguishing, I asked myself if this situation was “too hot to handle”. However, armed with my BWRT Level 1 and Level 2 training, I felt that this would be a suitable case to see whether BWRT could handle the heat.

1. To demonstrate sound clinical judgement in the timing of BWRT Level 1 and Level 2 interventions.
2. To describe the positive impact and hope generated through BWRT for the client with complex needs.
3. To emphasise the value of client homework as well as that of trigger guards in the BWRT treatment process.
4. To consider how apparent setbacks in outcomes can be addressed within BWRT interventions.
5. To reflect on the impact of BWRT Level 1 and Level 2 technology on therapist self-efficacy and therapy outcome expectations.
6. To reflect of the ethical considerations of beneficence, non-maleficence, justice, autonomy and informed consent in the BWRT treatment framework.
