About the Trauma Center at Psykologvirke

At the Trauma Center, we are building a competence center for trauma psychology.

We offer cutting-edge patient care, in addition to teaching, education and guidance of health professionals. 

We also work at the societal level, aimed at a deeper cultural understanding of how trauma psychology can be the basis for everyday problems and larger societal lines of conflict.

We consider this knowledge to be crucial for public health and future generations.

Trauma treatment

Trauma treatment can not change your story, but can radically change the imprint that has settled on your body and mind.

Through trauma treatment, the body, brain and heart finally process the traumas, rather than being stuck in fear, avoidance, symptoms and destructive mindset.

The trauma center conducts teaching in trauma psychology for clients, relatives and health professionals. We offer everything from individual online courses to continuing education in trauma treatment. 


The trauma center at Psykologvirke has some of the country's leading psychotherapy supervisors on staff, and runs extensive guidance in trauma treatment and for the therapist's own health.

Innovative treatment

All too often, it is far from the research front to clinical practice. At the Trauma Center, we want new knowledge to benefit clients as quickly as possible.

By combining established treatment models with the most up-to-date research, we tailor a treatment based on solid therapy models and findings from innovative research.

We participate in research into MDMA and psychedelic-assisted therapy, and implement lessons from this field into our thinking.

You do not need to have a trauma diagnosis or have experienced what we call A-trauma, to be able to get help from us. We have experienced that unprocessed traumatic events are the basis for many people who seek therapy, even if they themselves may not think of the events as particularly traumatic. 
Many who come to therapy think that they have not experienced "enough" to be able to justify their ailments, while others think that they have experienced so much pain that they can not be repaired. We exist for people with both small and large trauma, wounds and self-protection. 

We have put together a team that combines several evidence-based treatment models for trauma, such as trauma-focused cognitive therapy (TF-CBT), EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), ISTDP (intensive dynamic short-term therapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), trauma-sensitive yoga with more. 

In any case, the treatment is based on your problems in everyday life, and is tailored so that you regain confidence, security and freedom to function in everyday life and live out your life.
