Emotional trauma is defined as any distressing experience that causes emotional shock and may have long-lasting psychological effects. Trauma resolution is accomplished when the painful memory or event no longer triggers anxious reactions or distorted thoughts. At PCS, all therapists are trained to assist clients in identifying past traumatic experiences that may contribute to present dysfunction. The goal of treatment is to assist the client in desensitizing and processing painful experiences in order to integrate the event into their life story. This is accomplished through individual talk and experiential therapies (including hypnotherapy and EMDR) as well as experiential groups such as Psychodrama, Anger and Forgiveness, and GET.
