Treating Trauma

Trauma

Have you, or your child, experienced a traumatic event? Does what happened continue to have a negative impact on your life or relationships?

If you, or your loved one, are experiencing some of the following symptoms, then trauma treatment might be helpful.

  • Reliving the bad experience in thoughts during the day or through dreams at night (Re-experiencing),
  • Experiencing excessive fear and worry about harm occurring again, which can lead to a great deal of energy being spent trying to protecting oneself from all possible threats (Hypervigilance),
  • Excessive Anger and/or Depression that often leads to relational problems (Negative Alterations in Cognitions and Mood),
  • Great difficulty talking about what happened, which can keeps people stuck in the past and make it difficult to live fully in the present (Avoidance)

Fortunately, treatments such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral TherapyCognitive Processing Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy have been shown to be effective in reducing these symptoms in a majority of people.
