Treatment is not a one size fits all approach. A key element in trauma treatment and recovery is recognizing that healing doesn’t constitute an uninterrupted existence. There are many effective trauma treatment modalities for both children and adults. Some of the treatments offered are:
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Because treatment for trauma is not one- size-fits-all, individualized treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment focusing on the clients needs, strengths, and trauma outcomes.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events.
Trauma-focused psychotherapies can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. Treatment focuses on the memory of the traumatic event or its meaning utilizing a combination of techniques to process the traumatic experience.
Techniques utilized in trauma treatment may include changing unhelpful beliefs or patterns related to the trauma, or thinking, visualizing, or talking, about the traumatic memory.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, it can help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Sexual abuse does not only leave psychological scars but can result in long-lasting health consequences. Sexual Abuse Treatment can focus on the consequences of lasting changes in the areas of the brain that are responsible for regulating emotion, thought, and memory. Regaining control without individualized treatment tailored to your specific needs, can be difficult when your brain is hijacked in this way.
A common effect of sexual abuse is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Symptoms can include reenactment of the traumatic event, avoidance of circumstances that trigger reminders of the event, withdrawn behavior, and physiological hyper-reactivity. Symptoms if left untreated, can extend into adulthood.
Complex trauma is dual, combining a child’s exposure of on-going traumatic events and the impact of this exposure. Consequences for children who have experienced multiple traumatic events can be emotional dysregulation, a loss of safeness, and inability to respond or identify danger cues.
Treatment must address the specific complex trauma domains such as psycho-education and processing their trauma with new healthier perspectives, safety in their environments, and skill building with interpersonal functioning, emotional regulation, and resiliency.
Family relationship counseling can be beneficial to families who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with family members and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
