What is Trauma?
Therapies for Trauma
We offer a variety of evidence-based therapies for treating trauma, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), and somatic experiencing (SE). These therapies are designed to help clients process and heal from their traumatic experiences and to develop the coping skills needed to manage the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of talk therapy that helps clients to identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors. At Hope Lodge we use this therapy to treat PTSD.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that uses eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation to help clients process traumatic memories.
Somatic experiencing (SE) is a body-oriented approach to healing trauma that helps clients to increase their awareness of the sensations in their bodies and to develop the ability to regulate their nervous system.
