Information on Trauma

One of CHTA's focus is on informing the public of the signs, symptoms and causes of Trauma

Trauma occurs when a person is overwhelmed by circumstances and responds with intense fear, horror, and helplessness. 70% of adults in the U.S have experienced some type of trauma at least once in their lives.


Children can experience some level of anxiety from several sources, to your left are tools to explain anxiety, help your child cope, and explain appropriate touching. 

As anxiety can cause the health of your child to be impaired, it is important to be prepared with several options to reduce its symptoms. Anxiety is essentially driven by fear, which in moderation is a necessary emotion. Anxiety however, is produced by your child’s anticipated fear of the future. 

As your child grows, it is important to explain appropriate and inappropriate touching. It is essential to explain safe and unsafe touching to better protect your child in public and private settings.

Yoga Therapy

CHTA is currently offering yoga therapy in Ft. Morgan, CO for anyone seeking an alternative form of therapy. 

Yoga has the ability to improve our physical, emotional, and spiritual state. It is an effective and powerful tool for providing relief to anxiety and trauma survivors. Yoga can make a significant difference in the lives of trauma survivors. Body-based therapy can help survivors learn to feel safe and take care of themselves inside and out.

Reactive Attachment Disorder

Attachment develops during early stages of childhood, when a child learns to become aware of needs and feelings and regulate his/her emotions

Reactive Attachment Disorder occurs when young children do not develop healthy emotional attachment to their primary caregivers, creating emotional and psychological problems as the child get older. Children with Reactive Attachment Disorder require a variety of treatment options centered around both the child and their primary caregivers.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing(EMDR) and reprocessing is a powerful psychotherapy approach that has helped an estimated two million people of all ages relieve types of physiological distress.

EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed, so following a successful EMDR session, a person no longer relives the images, sounds, and feelings when the event is brought to mind. During EMDR, the therapist works with the client to identify a specific problem as the focus of the treatment session.

Mind and Body 

There is a direct correlation between our physical and mental health.

What we eat and how we treat our bodies directly affect our mental health, the structure of your brain, and your mood. Your brain and body function best when they are receiving quality nutrition on a daily basis. There are many consequences and correlations between what you eat and how you behave and feel.
