The fourth and fifth sessions aim to assist the youth in verbalizing a history of past and ongoing experiences known as the chronic traumatic stress history. It is important that the child tell his story in his own words, and that the variety of experiences he has had can be integrated into one coherent narrative. It is the therapist’s job to guide the youth during this process, while noting the occurrence of fear, sadness, and anger throughout the narrative. Strategies for modeling the use of previously developed skills and tools are described, and the life timeline and feelings worksheets are introduced.
