What Are Trauma and PTSD?
When the brain perceives a threat, it floods the body with adrenaline and cortisol. This causes the classic fight, flight, or freeze response. During a life-threatening event, like an accident or natural disaster, the body will either process or store these chemicals. When they are processed, the event becomes a memory. When they are stored, the event becomes a traumatic memory that easily triggers another fight, flight, or flees response. Storing these chemicals is common and results in symptoms like:
- Mood swings
- Changes in heart rate
- Constant worry
- Sense of doom
- Irrational thought patterns
- Emotional outburst
- Profuse sweating
Some psychologists say that trauma gets “trapped” in the body’s tissues, ready to reactivate physical, mental, and emotional symptoms when triggered. These triggers and responses look different depending on their PTSD and life experience. PTSD develops when someone experiences ongoing trauma. This is common with veterans and first responders who experience life-threatening events consistently without sufficient time to process them. Because everyone’s experience of trauma is unique, it’s important to seek professional help for trauma resolution.
What Is Rapid Trauma Resolution Therapy For PTSD?
Also called RRT, trauma resolution therapy helps clients feel safe and stabilizes trauma triggers. RRT can help clients find self-soothing techniques to return to feeling calm and safe despite traumatic memories easily. RRT is highly individualized, providing clients with guided imagery, hypnosis, and other forms of talk therapy to safely work through unprocessed trauma, develop coping strategies, and feel safe. For those with PTSD, RRT provides a safe space to work through traumatic memories. For many, this may be the first time they’ve discussed the details of a traumatic event. Their RRT therapist will help provide a space that feels safe, calm, and nonjudgmental as they begin to work through trauma.
RRT can also pair well with other therapies, like EMDR, CBT, and DBT, for overall wellness. Many clients also find support through alternative therapies like art, meditation, and yoga as they work through rapid trauma resolution.
