Trauma is one of the most defining aspects of our life experiences. In Chicago, every day, countless people experience trauma in one form or another. Most of us bury the turbulent sensations inside and never revisit them consciously.
However, trauma should not be simply swept under the rug and ignored. The only way to address is to confront it. Sadly, many of us lack the support structure and insight to deal with it effectively and definitively.
With that said, there are treatments which can offer tremendous benefits for those suffering from trauma, particularly PTSD. In fact, EMDR therapy for PTSD in Chicago has in many ways overturned decades of research which had branded several types of PTSD as incurable. Here are some benefits EMDR therapy in Chicago has to offer:
