What is Trauma Therapy?
Not many of us will get through life without facing our own share of challenges. But some people experience not just stress and strife, but actual PTSD and trauma. Trauma may come in the form of:
- Physically or emotionally abusive relationship
- a serious car accident
- sexual assault
- the sudden loss of a loved one
- or military combat.
Additionally, when a person experiences trauma, their entire world changes almost instantly. Many trauma survivors have a hard time feeling safe and secure. They can begin to experience PTSD symptoms, anxiety, and depression, have trouble sleeping, and may experience other behavioral changes that are frightening to them and their loved ones.
How Does Trauma Therapy in Florida Work?
If you have experienced trauma and begun to see some of the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), it’s time to explore PTSD treatment and trauma therapy so you can begin healing. The idea of trauma therapy in Florida can feel scary and overwhelming to people with PTSD, mainly because they need to have a sense of total control to feel safe.
However, trauma therapy is something that can empower an individual with PTSD. With the help of a caring and qualified mental health professional, the person can begin to process past events, which helps to lessen the intensity of which the traumatic event is impacting their lives.
Trauma therapy is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and has the potential to actually change the way your brain works through what is called neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity simply means our brains and neural pathways (how we think and feel) are malleable. Through specific mental health tools and strategies, we can retrain our brains to let go of the fear and begin to heal.
Some of the Goals of Trauma Therapy Are:
- To provide a safe space to process the traumatic event
- Reduce or eliminate the symptoms of trauma
- To improve day-to-day functioning
- And to empower a person to move forward positively in their lives
- To obtain the skills and tools to prevent an individual from continuing to reexperience the event
If you or a loved one are living with PTSD, it’s important that you recognize the symptoms and seek help. Life does not have to continue to be scary or overwhelming. Furthermore, there are strategies that can help you process your pain so that you may continue to live your life full of joy and peace.
