What The LIFE Center Does:
Finding a supportive place where some of the deepest and most painful issues of life are explored with professionally trained staff can make an immeasurable difference in working through traumatic losses. Individuals are motivated to change their perceptions through specific therapeutic techniques that help to reduce the immobilizing fear, panic, anger, anxiety and somatic symptoms often associated with post-traumatic stress, due to traumatic death, illness or crime incident. Traditional and innovative researched techniques are utilized in order to promote change and perspectives.
Group participation encourages members to develop strategies for changing beliefs and behaviors, to live more productively, and to improve social functioning. Through interaction with trained staff, they learn to support one another through the stages of grief and recovery. Their sharing may heal the pain and isolation of loss.
