In his book Healing Trauma, Peter Levine writes, "If you bring forth that which is within you, Then that which is within you Will be your salvation. If you do not bring forth that which is within you, Then that which is within you Will destroy you." When one experiences the clutching grasp of trauma, it has the power to change their life forever. However, as clinicians, we can turn that power into tremendous healing and growth for our clients by creating a safe space to explore and process the trauma rather than letting history repeat itself. In my years of working with trauma survivors, I have seen many clients repeating their trauma stories repeatedly in a desperate attempt to heal from it. As Peter Levine beautifully states, "Re-enactments may be played out in intimate relationships, work situations, repetitive accidents or mishaps, and other seemingly random events. They may also appear in the form of bodily symptoms or psychosomatic diseases. Children who have had a traumatic experience repeatedly recreate it in their play. As adults, we are often compelled to re-enact our early traumas in our daily lives. The mechanism is similar regardless of the individual's age."
In this training, we will define what trauma is and its effects on a person's mind and body. We will further explore together, using up-to-date research, why our clients tend to repeat the traumas they so deeply want to heal from. I will educate the audience on research-based interventions for healing childhood wounds through IFS techniques, mindfulness exercises, and somatic interventions. As well as practice some hands-on experiential together to help us better understand, as clinicians, how to treat our inner child and the wounds they carry within us.
"Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness." (Levine, Peter). When we can hold our clients in their pain and feel prepared and confident enough, we create a safe place for proper healing. I hope this training will allow for the skills and tools to do just that.
