Body Positive Works

Trauma Specialists
Bergen County, NJ

Body Positive Works takes a trauma-informed approach to all of our practices and services. 

Our practitioners are continually seeking education and training from world-renowned trauma experts to provide the most up-to-date information to work alongside you.

What is Trauma?

According to Dr. Gabor Maté, “trauma is a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically that then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and now you’re acting out of pain. It induces fear and now you’re acting out of fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you.”

Bessel van der Kolk describes trauma as “not the story of something that happened back then. It’s the current imprint of that pain, horror, and fear living inside people.”
