Trauma Therapy is more in-depth than counselling. It is different than talk therapy and about restructuring the brain and nervous systems. Trauma therapy is an approach that focuses on healing the whole person and not just the mind. It is a holistic approach that includes the body and brain healing focus. Our bodies carry the trauma while our brains are unable to process the experience that lives within us. Our people have faced the trauma of cultural genocide that will impact many generations to come. It is important to understand how cultural genocide and systematic racism can create stress on the brain and body. CBT techniques will be limited in how to support our people psychologically. Our trauma therapists have extensive training that requires intensive three-year programs that include: multiple consultations, supervision, and personal integration of material.
Trauma approaches include:
