Trauma Resolution Integration Program
This program created by Nova Southeastern University's Psycological Services Center treats individuals age 18 and above who have been exposed to a traumatic situation and are currently experiencing problems in functioning as a result of the traumatic experience. Examples of traumatic situations include childhood abuse, rape, physical assault, or a life-threatening accident or injury that creates ongoing distress that interferes with day-to-day functioning and maintaining satisfactory interpersonal relationships.
Whether or not they have experienced a traumatic incident, we also treat Individuals age 18 and above with dissociative experiences that disturb them or that interfere with their ability to function effectively. Examples of dissociative experiences include: “spaciness,” difficulty staying focused on the here and now; not feeling real or feeling as if one’s surrounding are not real; losing time or not being able to remember entire periods of one’s life; and a radically shifting sense of self. A combination of individual psychotherapy and participation in coping-skills training groups form the core of the treatment package we offer. We also provide couples and family therapy to individuals with trauma-related and dissociative symptoms as needed.
