ABSTRACT: An in vitro flooding package was used to treat the post traumatic stress disorder of a 10-year-old girl. Traumatic scenes were identified and stimulus and response imagery cues were presented according to a multiple baseline across traumatic scenes design. Post treatment and 6 month follow-up assessments revealed that the girl’s affective, behavioral, and cognitive parameters were positively influenced by the treatment package.
