What is Trauma Therapy?

Trauma therapy is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on healing the emotional wounds caused by traumatic experiences. It can help address general symptoms of trauma (the emotional response to a distressing or shocking event) or PTSD (a specific diagnosis that may develop after experiencing a traumatic event). Marietta’s trauma therapy may vary based on the type of trauma you experienced:
Learn How Therapy Can Help

Acute trauma refers to a single traumatic event, such as a car accident, natural disaster, or assault. Examples of acute trauma may include witnessing a violent crime or experiencing a severe injury. Trauma therapy can help individuals recover from acute trauma by processing the emotions and memories associated with the event.

Chronic trauma occurs when an individual experiences repeated and prolonged traumatic events, such as ongoing abuse or neglect. Examples of chronic trauma may include poverty or domestic violence. Trauma therapy can help individuals heal from chronic trauma by addressing the underlying issues and developing healthy coping mechanisms.

Complex trauma can form complex-PTSD (cPTSD). Complex trauma is a type of childhood trauma that is repeated, long-term, and often personal. Examples of complex trauma include neglect, childhood abuse, or sexual assault. The long-term effects of complex trauma often look different than acute or chronic trauma, forming cPTSD. Professional trauma therapists can help those who struggle with complex trauma or PTSD.

PTSD is a mental health disorder that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Common examples of PTSD triggers include military combat, sexual assault, or a serious accident. Trauma therapy for PTSD can help individuals manage their symptoms, process traumatic memories, and regain control over their lives.

How does Trauma Affect the Brain?

Trauma can have a profound impact on the brain. However, the good news is that trauma is treatable. Talk therapy is one of the most effective approaches in healing trauma and restoring brain function. Some emotional and cognitive symptoms of trauma may include:

  • Intrusive thoughts or memories
  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Hyperarousal or hypervigilance
  • Avoidance of triggers
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Difficulty concentrating

How does Trauma Affect the Body?

Research has found that trauma not only affects the brain but that the body also holds trauma. This can result in various different physical symptoms, including:

  • Headaches
  • Heart palpitations
  • Fatigue or low energy
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Digestive issues
  • Body aches and pains
  • Changes in appetite
  • Weakened immune system

What are the Best Treatments for Trauma?

The best treatment for trauma is unique to each individual and will be discussed further with a licensed trauma therapist. However, here are some commonly used approaches:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CPT is a form of talk therapy that focuses on identifying and altering negative thoughts and beliefs related to the traumatic event. It can help trauma survivors reframe their thoughts and develop healthier coping mechanisms.

Preparing for Your First Session

Your first session with a Marietta trauma therapist will be about establishing trust. It is a safe space for you to share your experiences and begin your healing journey, and we encourage you to ask any questions you have about the therapy process. To prepare for therapy, it can be helpful to ask yourself what your goals with therapy are, what your most pressing issues are, and what you hope to gain from therapy. It’s okay if you don’t know right away; your therapist will help you determine your goals and then create a plan best suited for your goals and needs.
