These workshops are carefully designed to help people deal with developmental trauma- this is trauma that has come from a childhood of covert or overt abuse in the form of neglect, abandonment, enmeshment, shaming and trans-generational factors.
Often people are unaware that their childhood was damaging and instead blame themselves for their seeming inability to cope or feel " normal" in certain situations. They often struggle to maintain healthy relationships and may suffer from shame and low-self-esteem. Addictions are often used to "medicate" their difficult feelings and mental health can suffer.
Trauma therapy is a process that explores the family of origin to see where less than nurturing behaviors may have occurred. We then focus on the five core symptoms that lead to codependency. Through psycho-education and experiential work we connect to the wounded parts of self. A powerful part of the work is done in a small group as trauma is better healed in a witnessed process. This process allows the wounded child to relinquish the childhood they never had and enter a new world as an adult son or daughter.
The workshops are run by highly -trained and experienced therapists.
