Trauma Psychology

Life is a beautiful thing, but the world is unpredictable.

At times, we can be faced with challenges that are out of our control, where we are unsure of how to battle and overcome them.

If you, or someone you know, have ever been faced with a traumatic event in life that is a constant struggle to get past, you may be facing ongoing trauma.

There are various causes, forms and treatments of trauma that everyone responds to differently, but in most cases, it’s difficult to battle on your own.

The California Institute of the Healing Arts and Sciences is here to assure you that you’re not alone, there are people who are willing and wanting to heal those with trauma, and you could have that opportunity!

60 to 75% of North Americans deal with trauma psychology and if you’re someone who wants to help others, you could make a difference in many lives with the holistic techniques that you learn from CIHAS.

What are 3 Types of Trauma?

There are three types of trauma:

  • Acute Trauma: Results from a single event that was stressful or dangerous.

  • Chronic Trauma: Results from repeated exposure to highly stressful events such as abuse, domestic violence, bullying.

  • Complex Trauma: Results from exposure to multiple, different traumatic events.

What Causes Trauma?

The way that an individual physically or emotionally responds to a highly stressful event is considered trauma psychology in Allopathic or Western Medicine.

That trauma triggers emotions and builds up in the subconscious mind creating blocks and obstacles.

Situations or events such as, being in a war zone, accident or natural disaster are a few examples of where/how an individual could develop trauma.

Other potential causes include:

  • Bullying

  • Harassment

  • Psychological, Physical or Sexual Abuse

  • Traffic Accidents

  • Childbirth

  • Chronic Illnesses

  • Being Attacked, Assaulted Kidnapped, Raped

  • Sudden Loss of a Loved One

  • Terrorist Acts

  • Natural Disasters

  • War

These traumatic experiences could be ongoing or isolated events, and individuals could also develop their own trauma after witnessing it happening to someone else.

If the trauma persists and worsens, individuals could develop PTSD where they have severe anxiety, flashbacks, and constant memories of the event.

Childhood trauma can be especially detrimental to a person’s health which causes them to struggle with emotional, mental, physical and behavioral development in their mature years.

In Alternative/Holistic Medicine, a different approach is used to get to the cause, removing blocks and obstacles that will help heal without the need to relive the trauma.

Healing from Trauma

There are many paths to wellness and healing from trauma without reliving the event or relying on heavy medications that can build up in the body causing other negative side effects.

California Institute of the Healing Arts and Sciences utilizes and teaches proprietary, holistic methods, techniques and remedies to heal the mind, body and emotions.

Treatments for Trauma

Treatments for trauma address the root of the event where individuals find healthy ways to overcome any symptoms they may have.

Mindfulness is a holistic approach that we use at CIHAS to address trauma and symptoms of PTSD as well as Positive Affirmations, Meditation, Visual Techniques, Breathing Exercises and more, all naturally.

While there are many natural ways to handle trauma on your own, and we all know how difficult that can be, your training with CIHAS will teach you how to remove blocks and obstacles at a deeper level. The techniques you learn will change your life, those closest to you and the lives of your clients.

When you become a Certified Life Coach, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified Behavioral Therapist or Certified Holistic Health Practitioner with CIHAS, you will be able to give your struggling clients the help, support and advice they need in order to overcome their traumatic experiences.
