Trauma & EMDR Therapy
What is Trauma?
Trauma can happen to anyone at anytime. Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel a full range of emotions and experiences.
Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based, conjoint child and parent/caregiver psychotherapy model for children and adolescents who are experiencing clinically significant emotional and behavioral difficulties related to traumatic life events they have experienced. TF-CBT incorporates interventions and techniques based on cognitive, behavioral, family therapy, and humanistic principles.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help children and adults of all ages recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
