It use to be that therapists would have clients recollect an experience of trauma in their past to re-experience it, in order to get it out. With further research in this area of healing PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), therapists found out that this is not only unhelpful but can actually be re-traumatizing. For effectively healing past trauma, it’s important to have an assertive therapist guide the session to prevent such re-traumatization. I’ve received multiple trainings in this area and have much history in helping people not only find a place of “surviving” past trauma but also “thriving” in the present moment.
