Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

Trauma Language: Understanding & Identifying It

Trauma language Trauma language could be anything that keeps you stuck in a negative cycle.

It could be anything that you have “learned” to say to yourself and about yourself on a daily basis.

It could also be anything negative that others close to you have always said about or to you.

Being able to identify your “trauma language” and the impact it can have on you over time is extremely important.

In this article (and video) I discuss trauma language.

Trauma language often tends to be ingrained in the heart and mind as a result of the language being repetitive.

The language has a way of breaking down your sense of self, your identity, and your confidence. Without the ability to correctly identify, understand, and then “fight against” the obsessive language you are likely to feel depressed, anxious, and defeated.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy focuses on “negative self-talk” and “negative attributions” which have a major impact on how we perceive our lives and our reality. With an awareness of how our language impacts us emotionally and psychologically, we can strive to change what we say to ourselves so that we can then design a fair and accurate picture of our lives.

As always, I wish you well

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
