Understanding Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma-Informed Care is an outpatient approach that recognizes and responds to the effects of trauma on an individual’s overall well-being. It encompasses a deep understanding of the physical, psychological, and emotional impacts of trauma, as well as the importance of creating a safe and supportive environment. True Self Recovery adheres to the key principles of Trauma-Informed Care, including safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration, and empowerment.

Types of Trauma

Physical Trauma refers to any injury or harm inflicted on the body, often resulting from accidents, assaults, or acts of violence. Examples include car accidents, physical assaults, sports injuries, and medical procedures. Physical traumatic experiences can leave lasting physical and emotional scars, requiring comprehensive support to promote healing.

Sexual Trauma involves any unwanted or non-consensual sexual experiences or violations. This includes sexual assault, rape, childhood sexual abuse, and harassment. Sexual trauma can have profound and long-lasting effects on survivors, impacting their sense of safety, trust, and self-worth. Specialized care is crucial in addressing the unique needs of individuals who have experienced sexual traumatic experiences.

Emotional Trauma encompasses psychological and emotional distress resulting from various experiences. Examples include ongoing verbal or emotional abuse, bullying, severe neglect, or witnessing traumatic events. Emotional trauma can lead to symptoms such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and difficulty forming and maintaining healthy relationships.

Childhood Trauma refers to adverse experiences occurring during childhood that have a lasting impact on a person’s development and well-being. Examples include physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, neglect, household dysfunction, parental substance abuse, or domestic violence. Childhood trauma can significantly affect cognitive, emotional, and social development, often resulting in complex challenges throughout adulthood.

Traumatic Loss or he loss of a loved one can cause significant trauma, especially if it occurs suddenly or under traumatic circumstances. Examples include the death of a family member or friend due to accidents, violence, suicide, or natural disasters. Traumatic loss can lead to intense grief, guilt, and a range of emotional and psychological challenges that require support and healing.

Medical trauma occurs when individuals experience distressing or traumatic events related to their physical health, medical treatments, or procedures. Examples include serious illnesses, life-threatening medical emergencies, surgical interventions, or chronic medical conditions. Medical trauma can impact an individual’s trust in the healthcare system, their sense of control over their bodies, and their overall emotional well-being.

Combat trauma, also known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), affects individuals who have served in the military and experienced the traumas associated with combat. This includes exposure to life-threatening situations, witnessing death or injury, and enduring prolonged periods of stress and danger. Combat trauma can lead to intrusive memories, flashbacks, hyperarousal, and difficulties in adjusting to civilian life.

Cultural and historical trauma refers to the intergenerational transmission of trauma experienced by marginalized communities. Examples include the impact of colonization, slavery, genocide, forced displacement, and systemic oppression. These traumatic experiences can have long-lasting effects on the collective identity, cultural practices, and mental health of individuals within affected communities.

Treatments Offered at True Self Recovery


Brainspotting is a therapeutic technique offered at True Self Recovery that aims to identify, process, and release trauma and other emotional blockages stored in the brain and body. This innovative approach utilizes the brain’s natural ability to heal itself by focusing on specific eye positions, called “brainspots,” which correspond to traumatic or emotionally-charged memories. By accessing these brainspots, the therapist helps individuals process and resolve any underlying trauma or traumatic experiences, leading to a reduction in distressing symptoms and promoting overall healing and recovery. 

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

True Self Recovery also provides Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), an evidence-based treatment that facilitates the rapid resolution of trauma-related symptoms. ART combines elements of different therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, eye movement techniques, and guided imagery. Individuals can safely process traumatic memories and transform negative perceptions and emotions associated with the traumatic event by engaging in ART. This treatment is known for its efficiency, allowing individuals to experience significant relief and progress in a relatively short period.

Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR) is a widely recognized and effective treatment method for trauma and other distressing life experiences. At True Self Recovery, EMDR is available as part of the Trauma-Informed Care approach. EMDR involves bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or tactile sensations, while guiding individuals through structured protocols to reprocess traumatic memories. This process facilitates the integration of distressing memories, emotions, and beliefs, leading to their transformation and the restoration of psychological well-being.
