Understanding Yellowbrick’s Trauma Recovery Program

At Yellowbrick, we recognize that the impact of traumatic experiences extends far beyond the realms of the mind and emotions—it intricately weaves its threads into the very fabric of our bodies and belief systems. Our Trauma Recovery Program is a dedicated journey toward understanding and healing, acknowledging that adaptive survival responses under threat, such as fight, flight, or freeze/collapse, can manifest as symptoms when unaddressed.

The Body-Mind Connection in Trauma Recovery

Unraveling the Neurobiological Effects: Trauma is not solely a psychological experience; it lodges itself in the neurobiological landscape of the individual. The Trauma Recovery Program at Yellowbrick takes a holistic approach by delving into the neurobiological effects of a hyperactivated nervous system. Understanding the intricate ways trauma can alter neural pathways allows us to tailor interventions that address both the mind and body.

Trauma-Related Attachment Patterns: Beyond neurobiology, trauma leaves an indelible mark on attachment patterns. The program is designed to navigate the complex interplay between trauma and attachment, recognizing that the relationships we form are deeply influenced by our past experiences. By untangling these patterns, individuals can move towards healthier, more fulfilling connections.

The Trauma Recovery Journey

Mind-Body Focus: Yellowbrick’s Trauma Recovery Program places emphasis on both the mind and body, recognizing the interdependence of psychological and physical well-being. Through therapeutic modalities, individuals explore the intricacies of their traumatic experiences, leading to a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection.

Addressing Symptoms and Survival Responses: The adaptive survival responses developed during traumatic experiences often manifest as symptoms. Whether it’s the instinct to fight, flee, or freeze, these responses can linger, impacting daily life. Our program seeks to address these symptoms at their roots, providing coping mechanisms and interventions that empower individuals to navigate the aftermath of trauma.

Integration of Fragmented Self-States: One of the primary goals of the Trauma Recovery Program is the integration of fragmented self-states that trauma creates. By helping to develop a sense of unity within the self, individuals can reclaim a uniform identity, breaking free from the pervasive impact of trauma on their lives.
