What Is Trauma Therapy?
Trauma therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps people who have experienced traumatic events in their lives. It is often used to treat people who have been exposed to physical and/or psychological trauma such as abuse, neglect, violence, loss, and natural disasters. The goal of trauma therapy is to help people process the traumatic event, manage its symptoms, and learn to cope with the experience.
There are many different types of trauma therapy programs, and each type of therapy has its own goals and techniques, depending on the individual’s needs.
What Therapy Is Good for Trauma?
Trauma is addressed in treatment by a number of therapies; which therapy will work best for you will be determined with help from your counselor. Some of the most popular trauma therapies are detailed below.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of trauma therapy that focuses on changing unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviors. It is used to help people challenge negative thoughts and beliefs about themselves and others and to help them recognize how these thoughts and beliefs may be contributing to their distress. CBT can also be used to help people develop positive coping strategies to manage their distress.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of trauma therapy that combines cognitive-behavioral therapy with mindfulness and interpersonal skills. It focuses on helping people develop skills to better regulate their emotions, tolerate distress, and manage difficult situations.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a type of trauma therapy that uses eye movements and other forms of bilateral stimulation to help people process traumatic events. This type of therapy is based on the idea that traumatic memories are stored in the brain in an unprocessed form and that stimulating the brain with eye movements can help the person process and integrate these memories.
Psychodynamic therapy is a type of trauma therapy that focuses on understanding the unconscious roots of a person’s distress. It is based on the belief that the way we think and behave is often shaped by unconscious processes and past experiences. This type of therapy helps people explore how their past experiences may be affecting their current functioning and how to change their behaviors and beliefs to better manage their distress.
Mindfulness-based therapies are a type of trauma therapy that focuses on helping people become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This type of therapy helps people learn to observe their thoughts and feelings without judgment and to become more present in the moment. Mindfulness-based therapies can help people better manage their distress and improve their overall quality of life.
Trauma therapy is an effective way to help people manage the symptoms of a traumatic event and learn to cope with their distress. There are many different types of trauma therapy, each of which has its own goals and techniques. It is important for people to find the type of therapy that works best for them, as this can help them make progress in managing their distress.
