Dr. Robert Muller’s six steps to practicing better trauma therapy

Get therapy! It’s really hard to do trauma therapy if you haven’t been involved in your own therapy.

Get supervision. Trauma therapy is really hard to do without good supervision.

Engage in self-care: schedule and take breaks.

Have a focus on counter-transference and notice what’s going on with your own feelings and actions.

Be attentive to vicarious traumatization. We all are susceptible to being vicariously traumatized.
