My presentation on Focusing and hidden trauma will be on Friday, July 31. Below is a summary. I hope you can come check it out!
This workshop begins with and then extends beyond my article in the recent Folio entitled, Hidden Trauma: A personal story of living with Dyslexia. I will begin by sharing a little about my learning disability and stories working with hidden trauma in my psychotherapy practice. My objective is to expand our awareness of what trauma is and how it shows up in the everyday experiences of many people.
Trauma is often hidden from the person suffering from it. The suffering is often experienced as a collection of symptoms based in shame, self worth and disconnection. The wound that forms can also initiate us into our giftedness. Focusing offers a wonderful practice for entering the territory of our wounds and leading us to the fullest expression of our gifts.
This workshop will combine presentation, participant interaction and a guided experiential exercise designed to help us explore an area of our lives in which we have struggled looking at both wounds and gifts implicit in the struggle.
