We’re here with you as you and your loved ones overcome PTSD and trauma.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is often a silent, but deadly disorder in kids. Children and teens develop PTSD when they have lived through a traumatic life-threatening situation or repeatedly been exposed to violence. Open the statements below to see details.
Re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive distressing
Every case of PTSD is unique and every case deserves specialized attention. Rebekah’s Angels is committed to working with the top licensed therapists to determine the most appropriate therapy. These may include:
Accelerated Resolution Therapy
Evidence-based novel psychotherapy that fosters rapid recovery by reprogramming how the brain stores traumatic memories and imagery. Incorporates memory visualization techniques that are enhanced by the use of horizontal eye movements, as well as memory reconsolidation, a way in which new information is incorporated into existing memories.
Fast acting, psychophysiologic treatment that helps people process and remove painful, unresolved memories by providing a moving object for the eye to track while using deconditioning therapy.
Short term, goal oriented psychotherapy that is used to help change patterns of thinking and behavior that is behind people's difficulties, changing the way they overall feel about the traumatic event.
Form of counseling or psychotherapy that uses “play” to help children communicate and express their thoughts and feelings.
Dogs individually trained to bring emotional support, and perform tasks for people with disabilities.

I often wondered how we could expect these parents to protect and nurture their children when they were dealing with years of their own emotional wounds from which they had not recovered. Therefore, if we hope to stop the cycle and work towards the goal of making families healthy, we must address childhood trauma as soon as we can in order to help prevent another generation of victims who without intervention could become the perpetrators of abuse...”
