Trauma Treatment

Trauma Treatment

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime. While many can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends, others may discover lasting effects such as deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed.

Types of Trauma include:

  1. Single incident trauma- an accident, event, natural disaster, single abuse or assault, sudden loss, witnessing violence, illness, or medical issue
  2. Complex trauma- ongoing abuse or neglect, domestic or community violence, war, recurrent physical or sexual abuse, and/or abandonment
  3. Developmental trauma- complex trauma that occurs within the caregiving system and interferes with healthy attachment and development, leading to adulthood with chronic relational problems and an innate sense of self as “bad” with a deep understanding of shame and guilt
