TCTSY is an empirically validated, clinical intervention for
complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant post-traumatic
stress disorder (PTSD).
Although TCTSY employs physical forms and movements, the emphasis is not on the external expression or appearance (i.e.doing it”right”), or receiving the approval of an external authority.
Rather, the focus is on the internal experience of the participant.
This shift in orientation, from the external to the internal, is a key attribute of TCTSY as a complementary treatment for complex trauma. With this approach, the power resides within the individual, not the TCTSY facilitator (TCTSY-F).
By focusing on the felt sense of the body to inform
choice-making, TCTSY allows participants to restore their connection of mind and body and cultivate a sense of agency that is often compromised as a result of trauma.
