Trauma Model

The Trauma Model helps individuals and groups identify conflicts, unlearn specific distortions, develop self awareness, and regulate feelings related to trauma.



Grief is a primary feeling which trauma survivors try to avoid. The grief stage comes late in the healing process because survivors set up defenses against the deep pain experienced during grieving. The content presented by survivors during the early stages of recovery focuses on the bad things that happened during the trauma.

The content of the grief stage focuses on the good things that should have happened during their childhood, but didn’t. As survivors mourn the childhood that wasn’t, the extreme behaviors and defenses become quiet, and the benefits of recovery work begin to emerge externally as well as internally.
