Trauma has been one of the oldest and most difficult sufferings of humans. Even though the source of trauma has passed, there are long-lasting effects that generations have to deal with. In this research, we explore and validate a treatment method for the trauma that involves the usage of dissociation and distortion in the form of the much-studied V/AKD technique. We discuss the impact of trauma, organisation of traumatic memories, and the V/AKD technique based on the theories of Richard Bandler, John Grinder, and Steve Andreas. 216 participants were tested on the Impacts of Events Scale (R) and further, 50 participants with a mean score of more than 8, were selected to test the intervention technique which entailed a free-form interview. The results produced have potential usage for additional experimental studies of such intervention procedures and define effective as well as swift treatment methods for pertinent suffering like that of trauma.
