CT is a relatively short term approach to restructure the memory imprints of traumatic experiences leading to symptom-formation. Experiential techniques are used to activate the causes that underpin the symptoms and also to change the emotional response to the roots of the current problems. CT can be applied to all disorders, and presentations, and integrates the memory reconsolidation principles from new research in neuroscience. CT can be used with various forms of therapies as an integrative part of the process. Bruce Ecker is the founder and main author of CT.
