You are sincerely XXXXX XXXXX the direction and guidance. I'm sincerely XXXXX XXXXX hear of the multiple traumas you've suffered.
As for the approach to a complex trauma (multiple events) the most effective approach to treatment is to identify what is considered to be the "Index Trauma" which is the one event that stands out among the others. Basically this means that the intrusive thoughts, recurring memories, etc are concentrated mostly on one specific trauma. The reason this approach is taken is due to the fact that as the index trauma is treated and concentrated on the impacts had on you from the other traumatic events will actually start to respond to the treatment from the initial trauma
I offer you this opinion as a trauma therapist and I actually specialize in treating complex traumas such as the one's your presenting with.
