TCTSY - An Adjunctive Treatment for PTSD, C-PTSD, & Complex Trauma, utilized with children, youth, and adults around the world. TCTSY is open to all people regardless of age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, body type and physical ability.
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga is an empirically validated, adjunctive treatment for complex trauma, developed at the Trauma Center at JRI in Brookline, Massachusetts, USA, by David Emerson in clinical consultation with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk. TCTSY, is now the key program of the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at JRI.
In 2016, after 13 years of research and thousands of hours of implementation, TCTSY was the first yoga program to be listed on NREPP-SAMHSA in the USA, a database for Evidence Based Practices (EBPs), becoming the first yoga model recognized in this way as an adjunctive treatment for trauma. TCTSY was listed as "... a psychosocial group intervention for adults affected by traumatic stress, which incorporates yoga principles and practices. TCTSY aims to support emotion regulation, stabilisation, and skill building for adults with chronic, treatment-resistant post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); complex PTSD; dissociative disorders; and other related emotional and behavioural problems."
TCTSY has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, Neuroscience and Hatha Yoga practice, with an emphasis on mindful body-based yoga forms and breathing practices. TCTSY reduces the symptoms of complex trauma and PTSD.
