Trauma is caused by the failure of the body and nervous system to process events. At the Escape Center, we aim to treat survivors of sex trafficking, who suffer from symptoms of trauma and other forms of dysregulation in the nervous system. During sessions, participants are not required to re-tell or re-live the traumatic event. Instead, it offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve in a slow and supported way, as opposed to the body’s instinctive response to fight, flight or freeze. This resets the nervous system, restores balance, and creates a resilience to stress.
