Finding the Treatment That’s Right for You
Taking an active role in researching and selecting one’s approach to treatment is an important step in the recovery process for many people. This may be especially true for those who have previously had therapy thrust open them by others, who have a history of limited response to treatment, or who undertook trauma-focused therapy in the past before they were truly ready to do so.
The brief descriptions of treatment approaches that follow should be considered merely one step in this process. Additional information on each of these models can be found in the Resource pages of this website. More extensive information on these and other models is widely available on the internet and through your school or community library.
Our Primary Goal Here
Our primary goal in what follows is to introduce you to a diverse array of complex-trauma-focused approaches to psychotherapy.
We have endeavored to do so in a different way than you may be able to accomplish on your own. Specifically, we have tried to provide you with an “inside glimpse” into what these interventions are and do, what sets them apart from other models, and who they are designed to serve.
Whether on your own or in collaboration with a therapist or trusted family member, friend or other supportive person in your life, we encourage you to devote some time and care into exploring the range of psychotherapeutic, medical, spiritual and other resources that may be available to aid you in your process of recovering from the legacy of complex trauma.
