Strengthening Your Skills in Avoiding Retraumatization

Working with trauma clients can be rewarding. To help clients break free from excessive fight, flight, and freeze energy so they can live a more harmonious life is why many of us do this work.  We desire to see people free from the grips of past trauma. 

While working with trauma clients can be rewarding, it can also be hard work. Holding the balance for clients between exploring the “then” and staying in the “now” can take a ton of skill, patience, and trust in self.  This is an area that requires continual growth and development as a trauma treatment professional.

To help you in that growth and development, we are sharing some of TTC’s favorite resources on the different skills used in helping clients avoid retraumatization.
