Del Amo Hospital Treatment Center has a nationally recognized Trauma Program. This Program utilizes the “Trauma Model” approach for the treatment of trauma-based disorders, including PTSD, Dissociative Disorder, and Self-Harm Behaviors. This model relies on cognitive therapies to guide the individual towards self awareness and trauma resolution. The goal of treatment is to use the structure and therapeutic processes of the trauma model for stabilization, to generate improved functioning, and a return to outpatient therapy. The program focuses on disorganized, ambivalent attachment patterns and feelings of self-blame. This model is designed as a highly-structured inpatient program which can be stepped down to a partial program.
