For real change to take place, the body needs to learn that the danger has passed and to live in the reality of the present.
― Bessel Van Der Kolk
CORE Treatment Services licensed professional counselors and clinical social workers specialize in trauma therapy. Individual counseling sessions, as well as Mental Health Intensive Outpatient group therapy, can help trauma survivors heal from their past wounds and emotional distress. Addressing trauma in a therapeutic setting can help clients become more rooted in and enjoy the present.
Bessel Van Der Kolk says, “Being traumatized means continuing to organize your life as if the trauma were still going on- unchanged and immutable- as every encounter or event is contaminated by the past. After trauma the world is experienced with a different nervous system. The survivor’s energy now becomes focused on suppressing inner chaos, at the expense of spontaneous involvement in their life. These attempts to maintain control over unbearable physiological reactions can result in a whole range of physical symptoms, including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and other autoimmune diseases. This explains why it is critical for trauma treatment to engage the entire organism, body, mind, and brain.”
Most human suffering is related to love and loss; the job of the therapist is to help people ‘acknowledge, experience, and bear’ the reality of life- with all it’s pleasures and heartbreaks. ― Elvin Semrad
