Treatment for Trauma and Stressor Related Disorders
Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. For many people upsetting thoughts or images, numbness, fatigue, avoidance, nightmares, or hypervigilance arise following a traumatic or stressful event. It's critical to seek professional help in these situations. Nobile Psychology, based in Babylon, New York, offers specialized treatment for PTSD as well as trauma and stressor-related disorders, enabling those affected to regain control over their lives.
Understanding the Impact of Trauma and Stress
Trauma and stressor-related disorders, including PTSD, can have profound effects on a person's well-being. Symptoms can manifest in various ways, including intrusive thoughts, nightmares, avoidance of reminders of the traumatic event, and heightened arousal responses. These symptoms can disrupt daily life, impairing one's ability to work, maintain relationships, or enjoy once-loved activities.
Our Approach to Treatment for Trauma and PTSD
Suffering is not a choice, but investing in recovery is. At Nobile Psychology, our licensed therapists employ evidence-based treatment strategies tailored to each individual's unique needs and circumstances. Our methods include Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) Narrative Therapy.
Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE)
This therapeutic approach involves gradually confronting traumatic memories and reminders in a safe and controlled environment. Over time, it helps reduce fear responses and aids in restoring individuals' confidence in their ability to cope with their trauma-related emotions. The therapists at Nobile Psychology take a personalized and compassionate approach, respecting our clients’ boundaries and ensuring they are never pushed further than they are comfortable with.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
We integrate DBT techniques into our trauma treatment plans. DBT aids in managing emotional instability and improving interpersonal relations. Although we're not a full DBT program, we offer DBT-informed psychotherapy and DBT skills groups to enhance our comprehensive trauma care.
Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
CPT focuses on how individuals perceive their trauma and its aftermath. The therapy aids in identifying and challenging unhelpful beliefs related to the trauma, fostering healthier thought patterns, and enabling better coping mechanisms.
Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) Narrative Therapy
STAIR Narrative Therapy enhances emotional regulation skills and assists in the creation of a cohesive narrative about the traumatic event, which can alleviate symptoms of PTSD and bolster resilience.
