A realistic approach of how to treat CPTSD and DT in short-term agency-based programs as well as ongoing long-term psychotherapy will be outlined. Early childhood trauma (emotional deprivation, physical /sexual abuse) intertwined with insecure early attachment patterns and the strain of present-day adversity may lead some clients to experience chronic and complex intrapsychic, and interpersonal reactions. For some individuals, their lives are filled with a pool of unmet needs, a legacy of interpersonal turmoil, a range of disruptive trauma reactions, and a deficit of skill, motivation, and support to move beyond their past. These individuals may become chronically depressed, have addictions, and are vulnerable to ongoing victimization.
