Vital Tones DTD is a groundbreaking treatment for Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD) also known as complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) or complex trauma.
DTD is a psychological injury that results from protracted exposure to prolonged social and/or interpersonal trauma in the context of dependence, captivity or entrapment (a situation lacking a viable escape route for the victim), which results in the lack or loss of control, helplessness, and deformations of identity and sense of self. Examples include people who have experienced chronic maltreatment, neglect or abuse in a care-giving relationship, hostages, prisoners of war, concentration camp survivors, and survivors of some religious cults. DTD is distinct from, but similar to, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), somatization disorder, dissociative identity disorder, and borderline personality disorder.
Structural brain studies of DTD show reduced gray matter volume in fear regulatory areas including the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, the occipital cortex, the anterior cingulate gyrus, the superior medial frontal gyrus, the insula, the parahippocampal gyrus, the amygdala, the orbifrontal cortex, the superior parietal lobule and hippocampus.
White matter decreases are found in corpus callosum area.
Vital Tones DTD consist of 3 different sessions.
Each session is 22 minutes long.
