This module gathers information about the trauma, identifies unhelpful thoughts that may interfere with the patient's recovery, and, if necessary, motivates the patient by assessing her strengths and resources. The information gathered here will help you understand the patient's view of the trauma and how her cognitions may be playing a role in maintaining PTSD symptoms.
