Treating trauma is it’s own specialized area of psychotherapy. Specific tools and modalities are needed to help people recover from the effects of trauma, which we see frequently as a co-occurring and precipitating factor to substance use. Trauma is held in the subcortical region of the brain therefore traditional therapy, though wonderful, will not move traumatic incidents the way that EMDR, Brainspotting, Somatic or Havening therapies do. In this talk, Deborah Sweet, Psy.D. of the Trauma Counseling Center of Los Angeles, will provide information on types of treatment and when and how to use them.
