How to know if you could benefit from trauma-focused therapy – Watch for these common signs

If you aren't sure if you need trauma-focused therapy, ask yourself if your life has somehow changed. Have you experienced any abnormalities or shifts in behavior or mood? If it's something persistent, beyond the typical ups and downs of daily living, it may be due to an unresolved reaction toward some trauma.

Alternatively, do you find that your regular routines and hobbies are harder to maintain or no longer provide joy (i.e., you're just going through the motions)? Does dread, anxiety, or another negative emotion cloud your day and bring you down? Are you bothered by intrusive memories of a past event?

Everyone copes in their own way. So, the consequences of living through trauma may be hard to detect. We all react and rationalize differently, and for many people, the results may be most evident in unconscious reactions. Or in altered ways of thinking, which may not always be easy to identify while in their midst. Therefore, if you're unsure of how to feel or think, or have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to contact us at Blue Elk Family Clinic in Nashville, IN.

We're with you every step of the way so you can take control of your thought processes, behaviors, and life

We offer our experience and expertise as both therapeutic and primary medical care specialists, employing a comprehensive approach to help you overcome whatever obstacles are in your way.

One of our primary goals is to ensure you feel supported because you are. We're here for you every step of the way. And we can try various treatment options to see what works best for you. One such method targets the traumatic memories themselves, teaching and training you to diminish their influence while reducing their intensity and frequency.

The cornerstone of your recovery may be cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT has long been used to help people move past traumatic events and memories. Through CBT, you can learn how to deal with negative thought processes, how to avoid them, and how to replace them with positive strategies that benefit your lifestyle. Improved thought processes help yield healthy, productive behaviors, changing your outlook to dispel negativity and re-energize your zest for living.
