Coping Skills: Of the coping skills list described as part of the “Seeking Safety” program in Schiraldi (Chapter 16) please identify and describe your use of at least 2 as you would explain these to your client during a Christian counseling session.

The Seeking Safety Program4 The Seeking Safety program has been applied to a wide variety of groups with dual diagnoses (men, women, adolescents, combat vets, emergency service work-ers, prisoners, homeless persons, victims of domestic violence5

) with encouraging results. It has reduced both substance use and PTSD symptoms in a number of studies, and it appears to help with other addictions.

                   Over a period of at least three months, Seeking Safety typically covers twenty-five topics before trauma memory processing starts.6

Each topic teaches safe cop-ing skills common to both disorders. These skills are then practiced at home. The topics are independent of each other and can be covered in the order best suited to the individual or group:

1. Introduction

2. Safety

3. Taking back your power over PTSD

4. Grounding

5. Substances and PTSD (understanding the role substances play in PTSD, counting the costs, options for reducing substance use)

6. Asking for help

7. Self-care

8. Compassion

9. Red and green flags (catching signs of danger before we spiral out of control)

10. Honesty

11. Recovery thinking

12. Integrating the split self

13. Commitment (to a better life, ideals, and relationships to self and others)

14. Creating meaning (thoughts relative to PTSD and substance abuse disorder)

15. Community resources

16. Setting boundaries in relationships

17. Discovery

18. Getting others to support your recovery

19. Coping with triggers
