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 typically stems from a singular, impactful event like a car crash, natural calamity, or assault. Instances of acute trauma could involve witnessing a violent incident or enduring a significant injury. Trauma therapy aids individuals in overcoming acute trauma by addressing the emotions and memories linked to the event.

 Chronic trauma arises from enduring recurrent and prolonged traumatic circumstances, like persistent abuse or neglect. Instances of chronic trauma may encompass situations such as enduring poverty or facing domestic violence. Trauma therapy assists individuals in recovering from chronic trauma by tackling underlying issues and fostering the development of effective coping strategies.

 Complex trauma can lead to the development of complex PTSD (cPTSD). It typically arises from prolonged and repeated traumatic experiences during childhood, often with a personal impact. Instances of complex trauma may involve neglect, childhood abuse, or sexual assault. The lasting effects of complex trauma frequently manifest differently compared to acute or chronic trauma, resulting in cPTSD. Professional trauma therapists specialize in assisting individuals dealing with complex trauma or PTSD.

 PTSD, a mental health condition, may emerge following exposure to or observation of a traumatic incident. Typical PTSD triggers encompass scenarios such as military combat, sexual assault, or severe accidents. Trauma therapy designed for PTSD aims to assist individuals in mitigating symptoms, addressing traumatic memories, and reclaiming autonomy 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.
