Trauma-Informed Therapy

Trauma-informed therapy is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that seeks to foster an awareness of the complex impact of a traumatic experience on a person’s life and relationships. As trauma can impact not only a victim’s emotional landscape but also their overall outlook on life, trauma-informed therapists focus on not only the behavior a client is seeking to address through therapy, but also the underlying reasons for the behavior which may be associated with their traumatic experience. Therapists make the emotional and psychological safety of their clients their highest priority, weaving an understanding of the trauma’s potential impact into every aspect of the therapeutic approach. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
