Unresolved relational trauma prevents attachment security and perpetuates a victim mindset and identity. To change from victim to “overcomer”, we must help clients: create self-enhancing narratives and core beliefs (cognitive rescripting), substitute survival coping mechanisms (e.g., emotional numbing) for beneficial coping skills (e.g., emotional processing), develop new neuronal networks in the Limbic brain, achieve mastery over trauma (desensitize fear and anxiety, approach rather than avoid frightening memories and emotions), and learn that others can be relied on for comfort and support (change attachment patterns).
Join Terry Levy, PhD, as he teaches you how to treat relational/attachment trauma by using the Life Script to assess attachment patterns and traumas, teaching couples Attachment Communication Training to facilitate secure attachment, and employing experiential interventions to achieve emotional, mental, relationship and neurobiological change in traumatized clients, moving them from victim to “overcomer”.
