A traumatic experience in your life can cause you to become very closed off to the point that you bury the feelings associated with the trauma instead of dealing with them head-on. Unfortunately, not dealing with these feelings can cause further negative effects like engaging in unsafe behavior, becoming reclusive, and mental health disorders like depression and anxiety.

Trauma affects each person differently and it is important to seek professional help to address the underlying trauma, and its effects, in a structured and safe way so that you can move on to living a healthy and happy life. To address each person’s unique and individual needs, treatment should be customized with a focus on personalization utilizing a variety of therapeutic modalities.

What Is Trauma Therapy?

Trauma therapy is, as it sounds, a therapeutic approach used to help those who have experienced trauma in their life that they are struggling with. Learning the coping skills necessary to manage the negative feelings and actions associated with the trauma can be invaluable to living a happy and healthy life going forward. Trauma therapy can also help manage—or get ahead of—a co-occurring mental health disorder.

Coping skills are not necessarily inherent. In most cases, they need to be taught. Once you learn what effective coping skills work best for you, then you can better manage triggers in your life and the negative emotions that may come up connected to the trauma.

Traumas in life can include:

  • A negative home environment
  • Abuse in the form of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following military service
  • Natural disasters
  • Health pandemics like COVID-19
  • Major injury, accidents, or surgery
  • Failed relationships such as divorce
  • Death or illness of someone close to you

The Importance of Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy is important and has numerous benefits. Whether the effects of your trauma are minor or more serious, you should seek professional help. Therapy assists in getting to the root cause of the trauma so that you can move forward in your life without it weighing you down. If a co-occurring mental health or substance use disorder exists, this can also be addressed as part of a trauma therapy program.

The benefits of trauma therapy at a professional treatment center include:

  • Working with a trusted professional to better understand the effects of trauma
  • The ability to customize a treatment plan to your unique needs
  • Acknowledgement and recognition of the effect of the trauma
  • Access to a variety of therapies
  • Dual diagnosis treatment to address any co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders
  • Learning and implementing effective coping skills for triggers
  • A focus on better communication
  • Working on repairing relationships
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Peer-to-peer support among other trauma therapy participants
  • Less risk of relapse to negative behaviors
