Trauma treatment

Treatment Several treatments can help people with trauma to cope with their symptoms and improve their quality of life. Therapy Therapy is a first-line treatment for trauma. Ideally, an individual will work with a trauma informed or trauma focused therapist. Types of therapy a person with trauma could benefit from include: Cognitive behavioral therapy Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps people to change their thought patterns in order to influence their behaviors and emotions.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR, is another common trauma therapy. During EMDR, individuals briefly relive specific traumatic experiences while the therapist directs their eye movements. EMDR aims to help people process and integrate traumatic memories.
