Trauma is an emotional wound resulting from a shocking event or multiple and repeated life threatening or extremely frightening experiences that may cause lasting negative effects on a person, disrupting the path of healthy physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual development.
Individuals who have been traumatized may experience depression, anxiety, withdrawal, difficulty eating and sleeping, emotional upset and behavioural changes.
Carizon provides trauma treatment in the form of individual counselling for a full range of traumatic experiences. We also offer psycho-educational and therapy groups for women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse or abuse in relationships and for clients suffering from anxiety and depression. Our “Coping With Tough Times” group uses a Mindfulness approach to teach new coping skills for people struggling with the effects of trauma. The Promise of Partnership program provides psycho-educational groups for refugee clients and we have counsellors who offer trauma counselling in a variety of languages.
