This chapter examines how an emotion-focused approach adds a critical dimension to the treatment of trauma survivors. It demonstrates through two case studies how emotion-focused theory can make treatment both more acceptable to survivors and ultimately more coherent for practitioners. Finding the most effective and efficient treatment for any psychological condition is the hope of any good therapist. The funding of treatment for any psychological condition is dependent on the total available finance either of the individual or from a service provider. The critical contribution of emergency services personnel (ESP) to the rescue and initial treatment of trauma victims and survivors cannot be under-estimated or minimised. The push for a quick and effective form of on-the-job treatment is a manifestation of the general principle that life must go on and that staying focused on trauma is not the way to move forward. In a very real sense, this is accurate.
