Create-An-Image Relaxation Trauma Therapy
The Create-An-Image Relaxation Trauma (CAIR) Therapy program is an evidence-based therapy program created by Dr. Lendell Braud to help children recovering from traumatic or negative events.
How It Works
The patient understands that he/she cannot change past negative or traumatic events, but he can let go of the negative emotions related to those events. He identifies the negative emotions he wants to let go of and he creates a personalized, symbolic image or drawing (like a balloon) for the release of these emotions. When he is in a deep state of relaxation he visualizes his picture, releases the negative emotions, and brings in positive emotions that he chooses.
