According to Bryant (2006), this type of therapeutic intervention encompasses psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, anxiety management, imaginal and in vivo exposure, as well as relapse prevention. The client will receive education about stressful reactions to trauma and treatment options, which will help normalize the client’s stress response and enhance the expectancy of recovery. By implementing cognitive restructuring, the clinician will address unrealistic and maladaptive perceptions the client might have about the traumatic event and his fears of potential harm in the future. It will be useful to provide anxiety management strategies to the client in the therapy sessions because they can provide him with a degree of control over his distress and with a sense of relief. The techniques used for anxiety management include muscle relaxation and breathing retraining.

It is important that the counselor makes questioning an important part of the therapy (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The purpose of questioning is to make sure that the family will participate in communicating their experiences (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). When members of the family begin to tell their point of view, the way in which each person was affected is revealed (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The therapist may be able to reach the family members that may have been considered as distant or hostile. Individuals like Gary may be able to feel heard without feeling judged.
Antisocial personality disorder describes a pattern of feelings and choices, so this doesn’t mean that individuals with the ASPD are unable to chart their own paths through life.

Parkes (1996) has written that there is an optimal level of grieving for each individual and that it is important for those feelings to be allowed expression. The counsellor who used a psychodynamic approach mostly would perhaps be more swift to explore how earlier experiences of loss and hopelessness were affecting the current experience of loss and hopelessness. Hope inspiration seemed to be achieved more as a result of the presence of firm qualities in the counsellor and the application of such qualities, rather than as a result of refined techniques. Bereavement counselling for individuals experiencing a complicated grief reaction appears to require a particular interpersonal environment or atmosphere. Rogers (1952) is most noted for suggesting the necessary and sufficient conditions that make up such an interpersonal counselling environment.

Our counselors do a great job at mending these broken relationships currently, but there are some aspects of restorative processes that could be implemented.
