Childhood trauma from neglect and deprivation and from physical and sexual abuse not only lead to immune compromise, chronic illnesses, and psychosomatic illnesses, but these are more often than not found in the background of many persons who later require mental health services. People from lower socioeconomic strata many times have as their only option mental health centers which often rely on newly licensed, inexperienced clinicians to provide services, as well as rely on time-limited, insurance-endorsed forms of treatment and medications which cannot sufficiently address the overwhelming nature of childhood traumas. Long-entrenched ways of experiencing the self and the self with others require protracted and in-depth treatment if the brain (neuronal connections and dendritic branching) is to be re-configured. Psychoanalysis provides protracted immersion in experience that allows a new way of being in the world.
