Clinical Services at Rush Traumatic Stress Center
Program Description

The Traumatic Stress Center at Rush University Medical Center offers a multidisciplinary approach to restoring full functioning and control to individuals with stress disorders. Because psychological and physical trauma often occur together, professionals at the Traumatic Stress Center work with experts in other specialties at Rush including cardiology, emergency medicine, gastroenterology, neurology and neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, oncology and rehabilitative medicine. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to evaluate and treat the psychological and medical conditions of patients experiencing traumatic stress.

We also factor in spiritual, family and cultural considerations to help in diagnosing and treating patients. Different cultures impact the needs of patients and their families as well as their reactions to trauma and its effects.
