Trauma and PTSD

Trauma, and the potential diagnosis of PTSD, can stem from a variety of experiences. Sometimes it is acute trauma, a singular event, forever burned within our being, that follows us in everything we do. Sometimes it is complex or chronic trauma, a series of events or exposures that eventually broke down our ability to remain intact of body, mind or spirit. Trauma can be healed. The parts of ourselves that were harmed can be welcomed back within the larger self, forgiven. The scars will always be there, there is no time machine that can change what has happened. Yet with integration, we can rebuild our inner world to something whole, and alive.

Campbell, California therapist: Russell Wilkie, marriage and family therapist
Trauma and PTSD

Russell Wilkie

Marriage and Family Therapist, MFT
I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to reduce the effects of trauma. Some of us have trauma that affects our bodies, others are emotional and some are more spiritual. Boundary violations of any kind can lead to PTSD, whether they are big "T" traumas or small "t" traumas, our brain can process through the event(s). We can get stuck in the left brain, right brain or amygdala and end up paralyzed. We use the eye movement to allow our three brains to calm down and listen to and soothe one another. Getting those three parts of your brain all active usually break the stranglehold of trauma.

At CTFT we treat trauma primarily with EMDR. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness for trauma. The research also shows that is it much more than a treatment for PTSD and can treat a wide variety of other disorders. How does EMDR work? Our brains have a natural way to recover from traumatic memories and events. This process involves communication between the amygdala (the alarm signal for stressful events), the hippocampus (which assists with learning, including memories about safety and danger) and the prefrontal cortex (which analyzes and controls behavior and emotion). Stress responses are part of our natural fight, flight, or freeze instincts. When distress from a disturbing event remains, the upsetting images, thoughts, and emotions may create feelings of overwhelm of being back in that moment or of being frozen in time. EMDR therapy helps the brain process these memories and allows normal healing to resume. The experience is still remembered but the fight, flight, or freeze response is resolved. EMDR a powerful technique that helps people to identify negative beliefs they have about themselves and to replace them with more balanced, truthful or adaptive beliefs about themselves and the world they live in. EMDR uses eye movements, tapping, or sound as bilateral stimulation to help the brain to reactive it’s natural healing process. For many clients, after completing EMDR, when they remember the distressing life experience, they no longer have the emotional response or negative belief associated with that particular memory. Can children and teens benefit from EMDR Therapy? Yes! EMDR is appropriate for all ages, adults, teens and children. When treating a child or a teen, our therapists will use language that is appropriate for the age. We incorporate art, picture books and a sand tray as needed. For children we call it, “Eyes Moving to Digest and Recover” (Ana M. Gomez). We explain it like this, when your brain is full of bad memories or experiences, it needs to digest those memories, just like your stomach digests food. It breaks the memories down into smaller pieces and keeps what is good and healthy for you and gets rid of what is bad for you.
