Understanding Trauma Therapy

Understanding trauma is often essential in order for our clients to gain insight into many of their symptoms. Learning about family of origin trauma, cumulative stress due to exposure, the ways in which their symptoms   appear and interfere with their recovery are all crucial building blocks to a solid recovery.  People with traumatic experiences often recreate the same story, unwittingly of course, across all of their relationships.  Gaining insight into the impact of traumatic experiences can create significant opportunities for change within the individual.

Types of Trauma Therapy

Rapid Reduction Technique (RRT)

RRT is a great technique for clients who experience flashbacks, nightmares/night terrors, or memories that are related to significant trauma and affect their ability to function normally. This technique is built on managing memory to reduce the intensity of these memories. The fight, flight or freeze instinct of our reptilian brain is what these traumatic memories attach themselves to, so the brain actually thinks the person having the memory is actually in real danger. RRT is a method in which the client’s brain can receive emotional closure through revisiting the trauma, processing the memory, and resetting it. This process actually moves the memory from the primitive part of the client’s brain to their long-term memory and if recalled, the memory has little or no emotional impact.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

CPT is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that is based on the belief that the way that we observe and think about things in our life has a direct effect on how we act and feel about these things. This therapy is primarily used in PTSD patients. CPT teaches clients new techniques of coping with traumatic memories and gives them insight and a better understanding of the events that caused their trauma. Clients begin to understand why recovering from these events is such a difficult task and why they view the world differently.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a technique that has been shown to be very effective in clients who have experienced extreme trauma with little to no closure. It is done in an eight phase process that incorporates several forms of bilateral sensory input like side to side eye movement, sounds, and vibrations while having the client recall the traumatic events and processing them. This process has been very successful in helping clients remove the lingering effects of their memories.

Impact of Trauma, Trauma Bonding, Trauma Responses

In this therapy process we answer the questions that clients with PTSD are often baffled by. We educate the clients on the many ways PTSD can show up in their daily lives like why they have trouble sleeping, why they lose focus, why little things startle them so easily, and the many other symptoms that can manifest in clients with a history of trauma. In addition to answering these questions, we also offer solutions to managing their symptoms, ways to work through their traumatic memories, grounding techniques, interventions, and other ways to remove or reduce the crippling anxiety of PTSD.
