Starting Trauma therapy

What is Trauma therapy?

Trauma therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on treating the psychological impact of traumatic events on individuals. Trauma therapy helps people process and heal from their trauma by guiding them through their trauma in a compassionate and supportive way, allowing clients to feel the full scope of what happened to them and eventually move on from the event(s). This process helps people who have experienced trauma find ways to feel safe in their life.

How does Trauma therapy work?

Trauma therapy will often require individuals to walk through their experiences in a controlled and compassionate setting (unless the client has a dissociative disorder) so that they can fully process the event, an activity that will allow them to move on from what happened and feel safe again. Thriveworks Centennial therapists will also help clients learn healthy coping mechanisms to deal with their symptoms outside of therapy.

Is Trauma therapy conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks trauma counseling in Centennial, CO is conducted both in person and online through online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Trauma therapy last?

If an individual is working through a single event that occurred during adulthood, they may only need a few months of treatment. However, in instances of childhood trauma or repeated traumatic events, therapy may continue over the course of years. Trauma therapy usually ends when the client believes they have met their therapeutic goals, however long that takes to occur. Thriveworks therapists in Centennial, CO will continue to provide care for as long as necessary to help clients meet their therapeutic needs.

Need more help deciding?

Trauma is a distressing experience that causes an individual negative psychological effects. These events can vary greatly; examples include: physical as well as emotional abuse, natural disasters, military combat, the death of a loved one, a car accident or plane crash, and getting bullied. A wide range of experiences can prove traumatic and have a long or lasting impact on the individual who witnessed it.

Fortunately, therapy proves effective in treating victims of trauma as well as those who developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the aftermath. Several forms of therapy are particularly effective, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (trauma focused), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and psychodynamic psychotherapy. In any case, if you have experienced trauma, trauma therapy can prove to help you to better manage your trauma symptoms, come to terms with your experience, and ultimately live better.

Signs and Symptoms of Trauma, PTSD

There are specific symptoms that one must experience to get formally diagnosed with PTSD, according to standards set by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). While symptoms can vary slightly on a person to person basis, here’s a list of common symptoms:

  • Distressing memories about the traumatic experience
  • Flashbacks that make the individual feel like they are experiencing the trauma all over again
  • Psychological distress that comes from triggers, which remind the individual of the traumatic event
  • Trouble sleeping (e.g., falling or staying asleep)
  • Lack of interest in activities the individual used to enjoy
  • Feelings of detachment from normal day to day activities and loved ones
  • Inability to feel happiness, fulfillment, excitement, and other positive emotions
  • Reckless or self-destructive behavior

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

As we mentioned above, there are several types of therapy that can help victims of trauma and individuals with PTSD. You could benefit from CBT, EMDR, psychodynamic psychotherapy, or another form of trauma therapy, depending on your specific experience, symptoms, and needs. A great place to start is thinking about what goals you have for trauma therapy. For example:

  1. Accepting the reality of your trauma
  2. Learning to better manage symptoms
  3. Building self-confidence again
  4. Improving day to day living
  5. Feeling excited about the future

Think about your objectives for trauma therapy and then communicate these to your provider. They will combine all of the information you provide them with you develop the best possible treatment plan for your case. This might involve detailing your traumatic experience, exploring triggers, and identifying harmful relationships.
