A Roadmap to Trauma Treatment
Phase 1: Assessment
Goal: Explore ways you have been coping with the unresolved trauma, explore problematic coping skills and any current safety concerns, create a safety plan for keeping self safe, develop a clear understanding of what your symptoms are, identify what regions of your brain are overactive versus under active, explore your strengths that may be leveraged within sessions, assess your eating habits, sleep patterns and level of physical activity, develop a diagnosis and a plan for treatment.
Phase 2: Acquisition
Goal: Begin to learn about concepts that will be used within sessions such as how the nervous system and brain interact, identifying your ‘Tolerance Zones’, exploring the concept of ‘dialing up’ versus ‘dialing down’ your nervous system, explore how your nervous system responds to various sensory based coping skills, learn about ways to ‘discharge’ and ‘recharge’ energy from your nervous system, begin to explore the concept of ‘resourcing’, begin integrating activities into your routine that help ‘anchor’ your nervous system.
