What Is Trauma Therapy?

Trauma therapy is a type of therapy that is designed to help individuals recover from the effects of a traumatic event.

Trauma therapy in King of Prussia treats clients for PTSD and the after-effects of traumas such as:
Learn How Therapy Can Help

Acute Trauma is a single traumatic event that occurs suddenly and unexpectedly. Examples of acute trauma include a natural disaster, a car accident, or a violent attack. Trauma therapy in King of Prussia can help people recover from acute trauma by helping them process and make sense of the event.

Chronic trauma is a form of trauma that occurs repeatedly over a period of time, such as ongoing physical or emotional abuse, neglect, or exposure to community violence. Trauma Therapy in King of Prussia can help people recover from chronic trauma through holistic methods and trauma-informed care.

Complex PTSD occurs when a person has experienced chronic trauma and the symptoms are more pervasive and long-lasting than those experienced in PTSD. It is most common in children and adolescents who have experienced childhood trauma. Therapy can help people recover from cPTSD by providing a safe and supportive environment to process their experiences.

PTSD is a specific type of trauma-related disorder. Examples of PTSD include veterans who have experienced combat, survivors of sexual assault or physical violence, and survivors of natural disasters. Therapy can help people recover from PTSD by providing a safe space to process traumatic events and develop coping skills to manage symptoms.

How Does Trauma Affect the Brain?

Trauma can impact the brain in significant ways, but it's important to know that trauma is treatable. Talk therapy is an effective treatment method for addressing the emotional and cognitive symptoms of trauma, including:

  • Intrusive thoughts or memories
  • Difficulty regulating emotions
  • Negative beliefs about oneself or others
  • Difficulty focusing or concentrating
  • Hypervigilance and difficulty sleeping
  • Feeling detached or numb
  • Avoidance of triggers
  • Loss of interest in activities

How Does Trauma Affect the Body?

Remember that trauma is not your fault. What happened to you was awful, but together we can find healing. In addition to cognitive symptoms, trauma can result in physical symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Pain or tension in the body
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Nausea or dizziness
  • Muscle tension
  • Sweating

This plan is flexible but will provide the framework in which to conduct effective therapy. Some approaches used in trauma therapy include:

Healthy Coping Mechanisms for Trauma

In addition to trauma therapy in King of Prussia, it can help to practice healthy coping mechanisms for trauma. Taking small steps in your recovery can make a big difference, so take it slow and don’t push yourself too hard. Whenever you’re ready to reach out, King of Prussia therapists will be here for you. Here are some coping mechanisms that may be helpful:

  • Cold shower: Standing under a cold shower can reduce anxiety. Take it slow by initially starting with lukewarm water, then gradually making it colder as you adjust to the temperature change.
  • Weighted blanket: Unwind and feel grounded with a weighted blanket. The gentle pressure brings comfort and calmness and helps you feel more present in the moment.
  • 5-4-3-2-1 mindfulness exercise: Find peace in the present moment. Observe your surroundings and name five things you see, four things you touch, three things you hear, two things you smell, and one thing you taste.
  • Take a walk: Shift your focus and get your body moving by taking a walk. Add some music or a podcast to distract your mind, and allow yourself to experience the sensation of fresh air on your skin.
