Current research has proven that two particular therapeutic models are successful in helping people who have suffered a traumatic incident and as a result are affected by symptoms of PTSD. These are Trauma-focused CBT and EMDR. Both of these models involve focus on the traumatic-incident.

NICE Guidelines for PTSD note that non-directive therapeutic models are not effective in treating the after effects of trauma.
