There are many effective treatments for trauma. Psychodynamic psychotherapy may help you maintain your gains for longer than treatments based solely on symptom reduction. Studies have shown that the effects of psychodynamic psychotherapy are more stable and enduring over time.
Trauma therapy involves processing early adverse events and past traumas with a non-judgmental and supportive clinician. Your therapist will help you to identify the ways in which traumatic experiences have contributed to repetitive patterns in other relationships, destructive behaviors, or difficulties managing emotions.
Working through prior trauma is never an easy process. In trauma-based therapy, a clinician will help you to confront prior traumatic experiences in a way that is tolerable and safe. A clinician can help you to process complex feelings attached to traumatic experiences and harmful others.
Do you have repeated flashbacks, nightmares, or intrusive thoughts of distressing past experiences? Do you find yourself in repetitive situations or maladaptive relationships from which you struggle to break free? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, you may benefit from trauma-based therapy.
While some can manage to heal from traumatic experiences on their own, it is generally recommended that you seek professional assistance. A trained clinician can help you better understand the nature and severity of your trauma, identify the ways in which it has limited you or held you back, and guide you in managing and overcoming your difficulties.
