Heal and Restore Program (HARP)
Clinical Trauma Services
The HARP program’s mission is for students to reprocess traumatic events with a trained EMDR specialist to see a reduction of trauma responses such as poor focus, depression, anxiety, and somatic symptoms.
Students with trauma in their social history who are willing and able to engage in this type of therapy
Outline/Services of Program:
- A personalized treatment plan is outlined in the eight phases of EMDR after an initial assessment takes place.
- Delivered via individual therapeutic sessions with Kristen Brophy, LPC
*Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) uses bilateral stimulation to reprocess significant or traumatic events in a student’s social history. Bilateral stimulation allows students to revisit these upsetting events without activating their fight/flight/freeze response and develop a new narrative and belief system surrounding the traumatic event.
**Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma. Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple, and complex trauma experiences. TF-CBT focuses on cognitive restructuring to reduce intense emotions surrounding the traumatic event. https://tfcbt.org/
