"No intervention that takes power away from the survivor can possibly foster her recovery, no matter how much it appears to be in her immediate best interest".
Judith Herman, M.D.
TCTSY was created for the treatment of complex trauma and/or treatment resistant PTSD. Trauma lives on the body, not just in our brains; TCTSY takes an embodied approach to healing to help heal trauma from within.
Survivors of trauma often struggle with awareness and/or connection to their bodies. Through the 5 core elements of TCTSY -Invitational Language, Choice-Language, Non-Coercion, Interception, and Shared Authentic Experience - survivors are provided a safe place to create agency, embodiment which aid in healing.
Research has shown that traditional talk therapy can only heal you from trauma so much - often we need more brain and body interventions to fully heal from the complexities of trauma. In the practice of TCTSY we are allowing our brain and body to heal from the trauma.
