3.12 Conclusions and Future Directions

Drawing from the neurobiologically informed models of trauma memories as well as the existing evidence of efficacy of TIMBER in PTSD, treatment resistant depression, and traumatic psychosis, this chapter has provided information on TIMBER as a stand-alone therapy or in combination with other treatments (such as ketamine infusion, propranolol, and brain stimulation treatment using the TMS). In May 2016, TIMBER was included in the web registry of the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC, www.​cebc4cw.​org) [33] as an evidence-based trauma therapy. Some rather difficult-to-treat conditions such as chronic drug dependence and borderline personality disorder more often than not result from severe traumatic experiences as well. As far as testing the clinical efficacy of memory-targeted treatment approaches are concerned, these are relatively unexplored areas and exploring these avenues further has the potential to bridge some of the existing treatment gaps related to these important health conditions. In our ongoing clinical and research work, we have begun to study the feasibility and efficacy of TIMBER in these populations as well and hope to keep our readers informed in future.
