Does Broadleaf Health offer services for those who have suffered trauma?
Yes, our clinicians have decades of experience treating those who have suffered trauma.
What types of trauma do you treat?
We have experience treating those who have suffered a single trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident, as well as those who have suffered multiple traumas or developmental trauma. We also work with people who have suffered sexual assaults. We provide trauma treatment to children, youth, and adults. We work with those who have suffered emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse or other trauma in childhood, adulthood, or both.
What type of training do your clinicians have in treating trauma?
In addition to treating trauma with techniques derived from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, one of our clinicians (Dr. Ekblad) also offers Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) for trauma. PE is the treatment for Post Traumatic Stress that has the highest level of research support for its effectiveness. Dr. Ekblad has completed a structured training offered by the treatment developer, Dr. Edna Foa, and her team of researchers and clinicians at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Ekblad is currently working toward a more expert level of training in this therapy through ongoing consultation with PE experts on staff with Dr. Foa.
In addition to Prolonged Exposure we have clinicians trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), which is an evidenced-based trauma treatment recommended by the World Health Organization, The American Psychiatric Association, and Veterans Affairs. Our clinicians specialize in EMDR for children, youth, and adults.
