“Just as no survivor can recover alone, no therapist can work with trauma alone.”
— Judith Herman
The treatment of trauma can be both intense and rewarding work. An integrated approach to providing service is essential. In taking the journey of recovery with someone, we as therapists also encounter the effects of trauma on multiple levels. The work involves both sitting with the deepest of human wounds and trusting in the incredible human capacity for healing. The work of establishing a healing environment for our clients must be done in a supportive community. It is the goal of the Chicago Center for Integration and Healing to provide a clinical community and environment that supports the work of recovery from traumatic wounding.
