Reconnect Integrative Trauma Treatment Model (RITTM)is a mind-body connection based integrative approach that treats the whole person. RITTM teaches the therapist to use an integration of the following modalities: EMDR, Brainspotting, Somatic therapies, Gestalt, Energy Psychology, and Mindfulness.
The RITTM philosophy states that trauma creates an internal disconnection. Trauma disconnects clients from their body, from their emotions, from their mind, from friends and family, from God or spirituality—ultimately from who they truly are. RITTM emphasizes stabilization before trauma processing, utilizing a three phased approach to trauma treatment: Stabilization Phase, Processing Phase, Integration Phase.
(Trainer, Dr. Darsa is a licensed psychologist, an author, creator of RITTM (Reconnect Integrative Trauma Treatment Model), and founder of Reconnect Treatment Center, in CA. She has more than 20 years of clinical and administrative experience in trauma and mental health disorders.)
