The science behind trauma-informed treatment is rooted in various fields such as neuroscience, psychology, and social work.


The Science behind Trauma-Informed Treatment: Unlocking Healing and Hope

Here are some key aspects of the science behind trauma-informed treatment:

  1. Neurobiology of Trauma:

    • Stress Response System: Trauma can dysregulate the stress responding system, including the release of stress hormones like cortisol. Chronic exposure to trauma can lead to long-lasting changes in the brain’s structure and function, particularly in areas such as the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex.
    • Brain Plasticity: The brain is adapting and can undergo changes in response to experiences. Trauma can impact brain plasticity, influencing the formation of neural pathways and affecting emotional regulation, memory, and coping mechanisms. This gives hope that the trauma can be healed. Rapid Core Healing uses the fact that the brain can be changed resulting in overcoming the trauma.

  2. Impact on Mental Health:

    • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Traumatic experiences can lead to the development of PTSD, characterised by symptoms such as:
      • intrusive memories,
      • hyper-arousal,
      • avoidance behaviors,
      • negative alterations in mood and cognition.
    • Co-occurring Disorders: Trauma is often associated with other mental health conditions, such as:
      • depression
      • anxiety
      • substance abuse
  3. Attachment Theory:

    • Early Childhood Experiences: Attachment theory emphasizes the importance of early relationships in shaping a person’s sense of security and self-worth. Trauma, especially during formative years, can disrupt healthy attachment patterns, affecting relationships and emotional well-being.
  4. Understanding Triggers:

    • Sensory and Emotional Triggers: Trauma survivors may experience triggers:
      • stimuli that evoke intense emotional
      • physical reactions linked to the traumatic event
      • Understanding and identifying triggers are essential in trauma-informed care to avoid re-traumatization.
  5. Collaboration:

    • Client-Centered Approach: Trauma-informed care emphasises a client-centered approach, recognizing the individual’s:
      • strengths
      • autonomy
      • preferences. 
      • collaboration between the client and Yildiz is crucial in fostering a sense of control.
  6. Empowerment

  7. Creating Safe Environments:

    • Safety and Trust: Trauma clients may have difficulties trusting others due to past experiences. Creating a safe and supportive environment is essential in trauma-informed treatment, allowing individuals to feel secure and build trust with Yildiz.
  8. Cultural Competence and Sensitivity:

    • Cultural factors can significantly impact how individuals experience and cope with trauma. Trauma-informed care should be culturally sensitive, recognizing and respecting:
      • diverse backgrounds
      • beliefs
      • values
      • spirituality
  9. Holistic Approach:

    • Trauma-informed treatment often adopts a holistic approach,
    • addressing both physical and mental health needs.
    • May involve integrating medical, therapeutic, and social services to support overall well-being.
  10. Ready for Change

    This is a difficult one. You need to be ready for change because no matter how good a process is – if you are not ready for change then it will not happen. Sometimes may become the trauma and it is who you are – your identity. Once you get to the point when you don’t want to suffer with this a moment longer – you are ready to discover the new you.
