The Rewind Technique is a means of treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and was first introduced by Dr.David Muss back in1991 with his article: “A new technique for treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder”. British Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1991, 30,91-92.

19 policeman with PTSD were treated with the Rewind Technique and followed for two years; all reported positive results and had returned to work. There wasn’t a single relapse.

The Rewind Technique (RT) is different from other therapies because survivors are not required to either verbalise or write their experience but rather re-experience it in their mind, just as it regularly re-presents itself to them.

Rewind offers a way of permanently stopping involuntary recall by filing the traumatic event so it comes under control. It does not make it possible to forget the traumatic memories but once filed, the involuntary recall: flashbacks; nightmares; ruminations and recall due to triggers (places, people, smells, time of the year, sounds, and many, many others), will stop.  Voluntary recall remains.

For single events, two to three sessions at the most are required. For multiple traumas, each traumatic event is dealt with separately.
