Trauma from domestic violence is real and among the top concerns expressed by Genesis clients. In response to their needs, Genesis provides a comprehensive clinical counseling program to heal that trauma and restore hope to women and children. Ruth Guerreiro, senior director of clinical services at Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support, joins the conversation to discuss the importance of applying clinical counseling approaches to the complex trauma that results from domestic violence. In this episode, we dive into EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and its heart-brain connection method that is clinically proven to effectively reduce trauma symptoms. We also discuss the variety of options for connecting with the Genesis clinical team, with opportunities for healing in both English and Spanish through call, text, in-person, Telehealth, YouTube, groups and more. And to better serve women and children who are Spanish-speaking, we added information about services and how to reach Genesis within this episode.
