For therapists: How to practice trauma therapy well

Get therapy! It’s really hard to do trauma therapy if you haven’t been involved in your own therapy.

Engage in self-care: schedule and take breaks.

Have a focus on counter-transference and notice what’s going on with your own feelings and actions.
