Survey: Acupuncture for Trauma Healing

Hi all,

I’ll be presenting a talk on acupuncture as complementary care for trauma healing at the VA’s Military Sexual Trauma Task Force training next week. My preparations for the talk have inspired me to create surveys for both providers and for trauma survivors about their experiences with trauma. These are intended to help create better understanding of how acupuncture is being used on the healing journey.

I hope you’ll consider taking twenty minutes (plus or minus, depending on how much time you feel inspired to invest) to share your reflections on the use of acupuncture in the journey of healing trauma. Responses are completely anonymous and you do not have to fill out all questions to submit your responses.

Here is the link for trauma survivors: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2NL2SX8

Here is the link for acupuncturists: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P3CSD7C

Thank you for your consideration.

Warmly,
Tracy

  1. The link to take the survey for trauma survivors does not work.

  2. Dear Tracy: I can respond in both categories. You may be interested in my book (being released next week) They Were Families: How War Comes Home. My background is as a trauma therapist with an original focus on sexual trauma but that has evolved as my work has expanded. I will be on a book tour beginning next week in Oklahoma, Colorado and Kentucky. If you are near any of these locations perhaps we can meet? I would be interested in hearing how your talk goes, how it is received, and your feedback and feelings after doing it. S

  4. Tracy,

    I just want to reach out and say that I am grateful to have come across these writings and the community of responses and discussion forming here. I am a new practitioner in the field of social work, and I work primarily with children that have experienced multiple forms of trauma related to sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, neglect, loss, and living in poverty. I hope to carry out a holistic approach in my work, and look forward to learning from what practitioners are questioning and exploring in this forum.

    With gratitude,

    Brooke
