Because trauma lives in the body, traditional talk therapy cannot access the deeply rooted, pervasive wounds that complex trauma leaves behind. In fact, therapeutic approaches that emphasise talking about the events often result in more, not less, activation of somatic trauma responses.
Adding to the challenge is the fact that many traumatised clients present with overlapping symptoms including self-hatred, self-alienation, addiction, internal conflict, numbing or shame.
Because of this, despite your best efforts you can never treat the root of their challenges: the legacy of trauma, which continues to “tell the story” not with words, but with chronic somatic survival responses.
The key to providing effective interventions for your clients is to shift your perspective so you can see your client NOT as a traumatised whole person, but rather as fragmented pieces in need of healing.
Learn how to heal these fragmented pieces in this exclusive 2-day workshop, where world-renowned complex trauma and attachment expert Janina Fisher will teach you her transformational approach to complex trauma treatment.
