Do you experience difficulties falling asleep or wake up from nightmares?
Do you experience recurrent memories of the trauma and have to work hard to avoid those thoughts?
Do you struggle with negative thoughts about yourself or have difficulties in your relationships?
Sometimes we encounter experiences that so violate our sense of safety, order, and what’s right, that we feel utterly overwhelmed — unable to integrate and simply move on.
Trauma can touch many of our lives in one way or another. It can take many forms:
- Interpersonal violence and abuse
- Medical trauma or traumatic losses
- Indirect trauma through the experiences of friends or loved ones.
Trauma affects the body’s physiology. Traumatic memories are stored in the body as well as the mind, which is why leaders in this field are increasingly insisting that trauma treatment must incorporate the body.
Body-oriented therapies are based on the assumption that our minds can resist moving forward; people can sometimes engage in talk therapy for years and never access important aspects of their inner experience.
