NICABM – Integrating Compassion-Based Approaches into Trauma Treatment
Description of Integrating Compassion-Based Approaches into Trauma Treatment
Unlock Healing for Trauma Patients with Compassion-Based Therapy
Working with trauma is some of the toughest work we do, both on us as practitioners and our patients.
But compassion-based therapies can enhance your interventions and support your clients through the difficult work of processing trauma.
Research suggests that compassion practice can act as a buffer against the harmful effects of trauma. It can help your client develop skills to approach traumatic memories without getting caught up in a threat response during your session.
Compassion practices can even equip your clients to repair ruptures following inadequate childhood attachment.
So how do we integrate compassion-oriented therapies into treatment and build a client’s capacity to process trauma?
We turned to the world’s leading experts in compassion-based therapy and asked them to share their best approaches for working with trauma.
