What is an intensive?

When we say "intensive", we simply mean "longer sessions." A large body of research supports intensive psychotherapy, with evidence-based practices, as an effective way to treat and heal wounds caused by Complex and Developmental Trauma.
Most people seeking therapy have suffered from their wounds for a very long time - sometimes their entire lives. With that in mind, we developed an approach that helps to heal your trauma sooner so that you can live life as it happens, rather than waiting for it to happen, connecting most to what gives you meaning and joy.
Instead of meeting you weekly for 53 minutes at a time (spending valuable time checking in and closing the session), trauma therapy at CWW happens less frequently and in three-hour blocks (for half-days or full-days). Our innovative approach is covered by most health insurances, and CWW is in network with most Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) plans.

How does this work?

CWW therapists focus on the power of human connection, with evidence-based practice, to treat issues resulting from Complex and Developmental Trauma. We are guided by the knowledge and constant learning which comes from understanding the nervous system through the Polyvagal Theory, and it's applications with the range of attachment-focused trauma therapies offered by our clinicians.
When more time is available for healing, it can happen faster and make a deeper impact when compared to the standard weekly/hourly format of psychotherapy.
In the words of one client following a full day intensive: "I have been suffering from these (traumas) for my whole life - in talk therapy for 15 years. Now it's as if they no longer matter. I am feeling free for the first time in my adult life."
We utilize psychotherapies for trauma such as Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (aka Standard EMDR) & Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR), inner child work (Comprehensive ResourcingEgo State Therapy), and somatic therapies. These are supported by research for the treatment of anything resulting from complex trauma - particularly when they are part of an intensive approach.
As a program of Seiyu Institute for Health & Training, CWW has facilitated thousands of hours of psychotherapy intensives for all things that may result from trauma (including anxiety, phobias, work and school performance, chronic pain, sustaining recovery from addiction, and more).
