What Is Trauma?

“Trauma is the result of a distressing event or series of events. An overwhelming amount of stress exceeds one’s ability to cope or integrate the experiences.”

– Healing Springs Ranch

Do I Need To Find A Specialized Counselor?

The answer is YES! Finding a counselor who specializes in trauma is the best path to healing. We have worked with Trauma Recovery Associates to introduce and train Social Workers, Counselors, Attorneys, and Other Professionals, who work with individuals who have suffered Trauma. The TentMakers is currently working on sponsorship for another Trauma Recovery Workshop scheduled on October 19, 2022. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please contact us via email: tentmakers.la@gmail.com

The Tent Makers of Louisiana is currently working on a list of counselors to help you find a social worker or counselor that is trained in Trauma.
