There are numerous benefits of trauma focused therapy for individuals and their families. During therapy sessions, individuals will talk about their experiences in a safe and supportive environment and explore the impact of trauma on your thoughts and behaviors, as well as what to do with them.
Therapy can give tools and strategies to help re-establish feelings of safety, self-esteem, identify triggers and develop healthy coping skills. By engaging in trauma focused therapy, individuals will develop and practice the skills they learn to decrease stress and trauma symptoms. People will learn to regain control and build confidence in their ability to cope with the trauma.
I use frontline treatments for traumatic stress, including cognitive processing therapy, prolonged exposure therapy and written exposure therapy. These treatments have the most research support and I have witnessed firsthand the power that can come from taking your life back from trauma.
