During sessions 6 and 7, the therapist guides the youth through the process of cognitive restructuring. Ultimately, the child develops the ability to shift her perspective and behavior appropriately and in a positive fashion. The youth is encouraged to explore the thoughts and emotions surrounding the traumatic events and to retell her story, dispelling cognitive distortions and casting herself as a survivor. Because it is essential that the child arrive at this new perspective on her own, reframing and reattribution techniques are described that the therapist should impart to the youth.
