Trauma treatment is a type of therapy that supports people who have gone through traumatic experiences in their lives. Trauma itself can assume many different forms, including sexual assault, road accidents, and natural disasters, as well as physical or emotional abuse and more. It may also be brought on by chronic stressors like living in a war-torn nation or growing up in a dysfunctional family.

The effects of trauma on a person’s mental and physical health can be profound. It can cause physical symptoms, such as headaches or stomach aches, as well as psychological symptoms, like anxiety, depression, nightmares, and flashbacks. In addition, having experienced trauma, a person may find it challenging to maintain stable relationships, find employment, or carry out daily tasks.

As we realise the effects of tragic experiences on an individual, trauma treatment aims to help patients process their traumatic experiences and teach them coping mechanisms for the symptoms they are going through. The objective is to assist people in taking back control of their lives and enhancing their general well-being.

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is one of the most widely used approaches to treating trauma. People who receive this therapy are taught how to change negative attitudes and behaviours that may be connected to their trauma. It also teaches coping skills and relaxation techniques.

One of the main advantages of CPT is that it enables people to recognise and confront harmful thoughts and beliefs connected to their traumatic experiences. This may result in a decrease in symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTS), depression, and anxiety disorder. CPT can also assist individuals in creating coping mechanisms for handling challenging feelings and memories associated with their traumatic experiences. In general, CPT is an effective form of therapy for people who have gone through trauma, and it is frequently combined with other types of treatments like exposure therapy and medication.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) is another effective trauma treatment method. This therapy uses eye movements or other bilateral stimulation to help individuals process their traumatic memories. It has been found to be particularly effective in treating post-traumatic stress (PTS). EMDR changes the way the brain responds to external stimuli. Therapy frequently involves sensory input, such as changing lights, gentle buzzing from handheld devices, or sounds heard through headphones. As the sensory input switches back and forth from right to left, a patient tries to recall past trauma. Though the trauma’s memories persist, the chronic bodily and emotional reactions to the trauma fade. Much research and many studies have been done on this approach, and it has been found to be safe and effective when administered by trained professionals.

Other types of trauma treatment may include psychodynamic therapy, which focuses on the unconscious mind and early childhood experiences, and somatic therapy, which focuses on the body’s response to trauma.

As you can see, there are numerous advantages to trauma treatment. It can help people reduce their symptoms, improve their relationships, and function better in their daily lives. It can also help people understand their trauma and make sense of their experiences. Additionally, trauma therapy can enhance a person’s general well-being by teaching them how to handle stress in the future.

Furthermore, a good treatment centre will have a staff of experienced and compassionate therapists who are trained in trauma treatment, as well as a safe and comfortable environment and a variety of treatment options. One such rehab centre is The Cabin, which provides a new and effective treatment known as The Kintsugi Programme.

New & Effective Treatment for Trauma and PTS with The Cabin’s Kintsugi Programme

Kintsugi is an ancient Japanese art of restoring broken pottery with gold, emphasising that the cracks and breaks are part of the history of the object and not something that should be hidden. This art form’s underlying philosophy is frequently compared to personal development and self-improvement, where one can embrace and learn from their past traumas and mistakes in order to become a stronger, more attractive version of themselves.

The Kintsugi Programme takes the view that your life is not a problem to be solved. Life is to be lived, with the past exactly as it has been but with a future as broad as your most deeply held values. Moving in that direction requires learning how to let go of some kinds of problem-solving. It means learning how to feel feelings as feelings and think thoughts as thoughts. This is a full immersion programme because it takes fully immersive work to learn an alternative path. Mere understanding is not enough. Minds cannot fully grasp how to solve problems in a nonjudgmental way because solving problems planfully and judgmentally is what minds do.
