Trauma Model

The Trauma Model helps individuals and groups identify conflicts, unlearn specific distortions, develop self awareness, and regulate feelings related to trauma.


Attachment Ambivalence

Humans have a biological need to be connected in relationships. For young children, life itself depends on these connections. When an individual is traumatized by physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, there is also a biological urge to recoil from the source of the injury. This contradiction in biological urges, to connect or to recoil, creates ambivalent feelings about attachment.

The more that the individual’s real or experienced survival depends on an abuser, the more dramatic the internal conflict.
