What is Trauma Treatment for Women?

Each of our program modalities is an effective, evidence-based approach to the treatment of deep-rooted trauma and its surface-level symptoms. Trauma care recognizes the  widespread impact that trauma has on its victims and their family systems. For that reason, it is primarily focused on building trust, collaboration, and empowerment — even before the deep work of healing begins. Then, as treatment proceeds, trauma care maintains a commitment to minimizing retraumatization and fostering holistic well-being through appropriate interventions. For example, trauma yoga addresses the physical manifestations of trauma while increasing body awareness and reducing physical tension.

Ultimately, our trauma community gives women the safe space they need to do the work that will help them heal.
