Integrative Trauma Recovery (ITR) Group

Trauma affects the body and the mind. At one time it was commonly believed that simply being able to tell the story of your trauma was sufficient for healing. We now know that to be untrue. In fact, being made to retell the story without having the necessary skills to handle the overwhelm that arises in the telling can actually reinforce the trauma or cause you shut down.

In this group you will not be asked to tell the story of your trauma. Instead we will work to help you build a toolkit for emotional and physiological regulation based on best practices from Yoga, Somatic Experiencing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.  Over 24 weeks, the activities each week gradually help you to learn about how your nervous system works, how trauma triggers cause emotional dysregulation and how to work with these triggers. We also look at how relationships get affected and affect dysregulation and how to work with relational dynamics in an effective way.

An individual intake appointment is required in order to participate in the group. No new members are added once the group starts, and there is a maximum of 8 participants. Even without retelling your trauma narrative, there may be emotional responses to the topics and skills, therefore each group member is also required to have an individual therapist that they are seeing on a regular basis.

Email Francine if you are interested in the group to set up your intake appointment.

Tuesdays, 4-5:30pm

Online via Zoom

$65/week (sliding scale available)
