Trauma-informed care offers a perspective that acknowledges the pervasive impact of trauma on a person’s brain, body, and spirit. For adults, trauma is usually caused by exposure to the threat of death, serious injury, or sexual molestation. Learning about trauma experienced by a loved one or family member is also a form of trauma. Archstone Behavioral Health is here to help you or your loved one get help for the trauma in a safe environment.
What is Trauma?
Although the word “trauma” is commonly used in popular culture to mean any upsetting experience, not all experiences are traumatic. Trauma can be caused by the following experiences:
- Witnessing the threat of death or severe bodily harm
- Watching or experiencing violence
- Learning about a traumatic event affecting a loved one
- Repeatedly experiencing the extreme aversive details of a trauma
Trauma-Informed Care (TIC)
People who have experienced severe trauma in their lives are often reluctant to seek treatment because they are afraid of living in the past. Refusing to accept the victim mentality can allow some people to lead productive lives; however, unhealed trauma will manifest itself in destructive ways if it is repressed. Repressing a traumatic experience or memory locks it away in your psyche, where it will wreak havoc on your self-esteem, career, personal relationships, and general well-being.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy includes a fundamental set of therapeutic procedures that address the role of particular thoughts and behavior patterns that often interfere with mental health. CBT helps people reshape their actions and feelings by modifying their thought patterns in order to correct problematic behavior.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behavior therapy is a relationship-based treatment option. We employ group work, skills training, individual therapy, and self-monitoring to change certain behaviors. DBT is a mental health therapy model that uses a combination of skills training and relationship building between the patient and clinician to help manage overwhelming emotions and difficulty controlling behavior.
