4 Resources on Trauma from the Austen Riggs Center
Located in the Erikson Institute section of the Riggs website is a Resource Center, which houses a broad collection of video interviews and presentations, white papers, full-text published articles, links and citations related to mental health and treatment featuring the work of Riggs clinicians and those who have presented at Riggs.
Trauma can take many forms and the way in which a person survives or learns to cope with trauma is a very individual experience. Many people struggling with mental health issues have experienced a significant trauma and there are a number of different treatments available to help. At the Austen Riggs Center, our treatment program offers people with significant psychiatric problems new pathways for understanding and relief.
Four resources on trauma located in our Resource Center:
