No Referral Needed

The TET program works in solidarity. We are rooted in Black feminist theory and anti-oppressive frameworks. We follow a  three-phased approach to healing from trauma as outlined by Judith Herman in her book Trauma and Recovery and we use a body-integrated approach informed by Dr. Peter Levine and Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk.

You will:

  • Learn about the impact and symptoms of trauma.

  • Explore new coping strategies to manage overwhelming emotions, anxiety, numbing, dissociation, flashbacks, and other trauma symptoms. 

  • Work toward understanding and identifying difficult patterns in relationships. 

  • Learn how to improve your self-care and self-soothing abilities.

Things You Need to Know

As such, we are not able to provide 1-on-1 stabilization of mental health symptoms during group sessions. Individuals are required to have adequate affect regulation skills so as to be able to form and maintain a therapeutic relationship with the therapist and other participants.

The Total Embodied Therapy program is not a domestic abuse or sexual assault treatment program. The focus of the Program is directly related to managing the impact of symptoms related to childhood trauma.

 

Physical and emotional safety is paramount to therapy and maximizing the benefits of the therapy and mitigating any risks of harm. We do not provide crisis services.
