What is Trauma Based Therapy and How Does it Work?

What is Trauma Based Therapy?

New Era Therapy Now wants you to know.

Trauma therapy is a type of psychotherapy (talk therapy) that helps people deal with the effects of traumatic events that have happened in their lives. Trauma therapy aids in the processing of traumatic events and any lingering trauma that may result from them. Any incident in a person’s life that they perceive to be life-threatening, abusive, terrifying, or hazardous is considered traumatic. Witnessing tragic occurrences can potentially traumatize a person. These incidents may have a long-term effect on a person’s emotional and psychological health. 

A traumatic event will occur in the lives of up to 70% of adults. From these negative occurrences, 20% of those adults will go on to experience a trauma-related reaction or mental health issue. The feelings and memories associated with a terrible incident can be crippling. They may lead to drug or alcohol abuse as well as the agonizing signs of a mental illness. There is hope for victims of trauma, despite the fact that emotional difficulties and disorders connected to trauma can be crippling. The distressing signs and symptoms of trauma-related disorders can be managed with trauma therapy. Trauma therapy focuses on assisting patients who have undergone trauma in the past or who have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in managing painful, life-changing events. New Era Therapy Now offers virtual trauma therapy services to individuals who have had these kinds of experiences.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

A trauma therapist typically has specific training in trauma and employs techniques and approaches that are intended to assist victims in recovering from traumatic experiences without re-traumatizing them. A trauma therapist helps clients revisit and reframe events that have a negative effect on a person’s relationships, life, and ability to function at work, school, and in social situations. The goal of a trauma therapist is to help improve the quality of life for the one seeking healing from trauma. Although facing those traumatic events can be tough, with help and treatment, symptoms can gradually fade. If you want to start working on this call New Era Therapy Now for a virtual trauma therapy session. You may still be wondering, what other benefits are there to trauma therapy?

Additional advantages of trauma therapy include the following:

  • Developing coping mechanisms for processing emotions
  • Cognitively re-framing the traumatic event to lessen its lingering effects
  • Enhancing and improving interpersonal relationships
  • Reducing irritation, wrath, and frustration and improving mental calmness
  • Eliminating or lessening PTSD triggers and symptoms
