Integrative Trauma Therapy Training

According to 70% of adults in the United States have experienced a traumatic event at least once in their lives, which translates to 223.4 million people. Among them, around 20 are likely to develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In a given year, approximately 13 million people suffer from PTSD. While most individuals do not develop PTSD after experiencing a traumatic event, those who do are likely to have their quality of life altered, impacting their ability to function. Those with disassociation and/or complicated trauma symptoms have a significantly lowered quality of life in multiple areas including mental health, relationships, work, finances, health personality development, and mortality rates. These mental health challenges can be difficult to identify and even more challenging to treat.

Human service professionals and therapists play a pivotal role in the healing journey of individuals who have experienced trauma. The complexity of trauma-related symptoms, particularly dissociation, necessitates that therapists have a comprehensive understanding and specialized training in this area. 

In conclusion, educating human service professionals and therapists about the symptoms of complex trauma and dissociation is critical to creating an environment that is conducive to awareness and healing. Early identification, creating a supportive environment, and tailoring treatment plans to meet the needs of the individual are all crucial components of effective treatment and functioning. By prioritizing education and awareness, we can help to improve the lives of those who have experienced complex trauma and dissociation.
