Trauma Treatment

One of the most important subjects in mental health research is trauma treatment. Trauma is at the core of many mental health challenges, such as depression and anxiety. While trauma is often perceived to be linked to more acute conditions like PTSD, minor traumas are the root cause of many of our mental health challenges.

Research has shown that traumatic events in our early childhood can often lead us to construct negative belief systems, which may cause unhealthy habits or dysfunctional behaviour into our adult years.

The task of addressing these childhood traumas is a key way to promote better mental health — and the primary research focus of Valerie Copping, Psy.D.
