The Goals of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

As you might imagine, one of the main goals of this therapy is to change the patient’s relationship to the trauma. If they feel ashamed, embarrassed, or even responsible for the trauma, this therapy helps to change that. Moreover, it helps anyone who may be “acting out,” to use a phrase, due to the trauma, as well as with any symptoms that are triggered by the trauma or even related to it.

Therapy that Looks Forward

To that end, this therapy also helps with mending and even strengthening personal relationships (something that tends to suffer when one struggles with addiction). By that same token, it helps to aid in communication and make for better, more positive, and healthy attachment. Indeed, this therapy can help someone to improve all areas of functioning in their life where they were affected by the trauma.

How This Therapy Can Help

By helping the patient to identify negative emotions and thoughts, it can help to manage anger, stress, pain, and even work to prevent addiction relapse, too. Often, this therapy best serves those who are dealing with PTSD or the aftermath of other forms of trauma. Essentially. The idea is that, no matter what is happening external to ourselves, this therapy makes it possible for us to positively change the way we both think and act.

One Therapy Treatment Among Many

Here at Seven Star Recovery, we have many trained, experienced therapists on staff. Towards the beginning of your stay, they’ll determine which form (or forms) of therapy will best serve your needs.
