I too see this as misguided and serious dangers in the development of such techniques. I am clearly a PTSD sufferer. For one thing, blocking the memories is not really such a clever trick, our bodies do that naturally. kt, such good insight. My memories were blocked for 30+ years and the feelings/effects were still there. It is only through reliving the memories and processing the trauma that I have been able to free myself of shackles.
God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
