Trauma can originate from domestic violence, sexual abuse, an early encounter with death, sexual assault, and many more. The goal of trauma therapy at Whitney Academy in East Freetown, MA is to help the patient see beyond the trauma and move forward. Mental health professionals will facilitate the patient’s journey and see to it that he or she is no longer a victim of his or her traumatic experiences and has wholly regained his or her personal power.

The process calls for practice, reiteration, and bolstering the new way of thinking being introduced to the patient.
