Trauma Therapy Approaches

Dr. Michael Dadson -Trauma Therapy Approaches

According to Dr. Michael Dadson:
Being a trauma informed therapist means, acquiring the knowledge about what a psychological traumatic stress event is, the relationship of that event to the perception of the person, as well as understanding the physiological and psychological defensive responses to a traumatic event, the way these defensive responses work to help the person survive, how those reactions can become invasive and intrusive when prolonged, rigid, and repetitious over time.
