Arnold Rahn Bruhn, PhD, emphasizes memories work in individual psychotherapy. Dr. Bruhn uses autobiographical memory to clarify the issues that are causing current difficulties, to facilitate faster progress in therapy. He also offers consultation to other professionals who would like a second opinion about challenging assessment and treatment cases.
Dr. Bruhn has 40 years of clinical experience in institutional and private practice settings. Dr. Bruhn developed and advocated the use of the Early Memories Procedure (EMP) & Cognitive-Perceptual (CP) Therapy for individuals and in groups, including memories work with inmates incarcerated for crimes related to substance abuse.
Dr. Bruhn developed the Early Memories Procedure EMP as part of new generation of psychological procedures designed to simplify the path to self-understanding. The EMP is used in cognitive-perceptual (CP) therapy, a newer approach to psychotherapy that focuses specifically on personal memories. CP therapy is designed to help patients understand their most pressing issues by the end of the second session and to begin resolving them by the third. Read more about the Early Memories Procedure EMP on my blog. Dr. Bruhn has authored more than 20 journal articles and a book on these assessment techniques.
