In a recent article, Myrick and Green (2014) examined ways that play therapists can incorporate a phase-based approach into their work with 5-17-year-olds who have experienced complex trauma. Focusing specifically on the first phase of safety and stability, the authors considered play-based interventions to help alleviate symptoms of poor self-care, high-risk behaviors, revictimization, and dissociation.

A recent qualitative study by Fries-Britt et al. (2014) examined 15 foreign-born students of color and their response to racialized experiences and their racial minority status in the United States. Many of the students came from countries in which they were not racial minorities, and reported a lack of understanding regarding issues of race in the U.S. context.

Veterans held in captivity reported higher levels of persistent dissociation (PD) 35 years following their service than veterans who were not held in captivity. Zerach, Green, Ginzburg, and Solomon (2014) report on a study of veterans of the 1973 Yom Kippur War who were either prisoners of war (POW) or not held captive. POWs with PTSD were most likely to experience PD.

Among couples that experience infidelity, those who disclose affairs in therapy may fare better than those who keep it secret. Marin, Christensen, and Atkins (2014) examined the outcomes of couples engaged in Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy or Traditional Behavioral Couple Therapy for 5 years following participation. Divorce rates were lowest for couples that didn’t experience infidelity (23%), followed by those who revealed infidelity (43%), and those who kept infidelity a secret (80%).

Group facilitators would be wise to consider the motivations behind self-disclosure. Hsu, Paquin, and Kivlighan, Jr. (2014) found that when engagement was high in a counseling group, members were motivated to self-disclose relationally or with expectations of help. When engagement was low, members were motivated to self-disclose because they were uncomfortable with the silence.

Impulsiveness is a personality construct characterized by the urge to act spontaneously and without reflecting on consequences. Coutlee et al. (2014) applied two different analyses to reexamine the factor structure of impulsiveness as measured by the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale version 11. The researchers sought to improve scale efficiency, score reliability, and inferential validity by eliminating questionable items and factors.

In “Fostering New Relational Experience: Clinical Process in Couple Psychotherapy,” Marmarosh (2014) examines the clinical processes that foster a relational experience during couple psychotherapy, and in turn, promote increased intimacy between the partners. The necessary processes include empathizing with the couple and facilitating safety within the session, looking for opportunities to explore emotions, ruptures, and unconscious motivations that maintain distance in the relationship, and creating a new relational experience in the session that has the potential to produce integrative insight.
