During session 13, the therapist assesses the stability of the tools and coping mechanisms developed by the youth in earlier sessions. The child is encouraged to discuss the impact of the traumatic events while labeling body feelings and emotions associated with her cues. Correcting any shame- or guilt-based distortions, the youth approaches a new personal narrative informed by her progress in therapy. Strategies for assessing the acknowledgment of emotions, cognitions, and physical and behavioral responses in the child’s verbal narrative are described.
