So what is Inner Child?
Trauma in the childhood impacts the physical, mental and emotional responses of a person, creating reactive behaviors, physical responses that are dysfunctional and inappropriate in the adult life.
We now know that coping by denial, discounting or forgetting painful experiences does not resolve trauma or the resulting reactive responses. The mind has programmed the somatics, feelings, emotions and conclusions from these experiences. The body is prepared to respond immediately and unconsciously to a stimulus that is similar to the trauma. What starts out as a subconscious survival program in childhood too often results in illogical, immature or destructive behaviors as an adult. We lose conscious choice because we no longer know what we really feel or want in our present, adult lives. Whole parts of who we are become locked into the trauma of the past.
This work helps us release the parts of us that are locked in traumas of the past. It unlocks the path to making ourselves whole, of becoming who we truly are, of being our authentic Self.
How does the therapy work?
Regressing to the traumatic experiences reactive the repressed emotions and trapped energy frozen in the past trauma. A skilled therapist must know how to locate the trauma and help release this energy from the body, heal the emotional responses and reframe the mental conclusions.
Because these life scripts or beliefs, problems and patterns are repeated on many developmental levels, we approach resolution in many ways. It can be necessary to work at various age levels, the present, the past or prenatal and pari-natal levels.
The mental, emotional and physical levels often need to be explored to relieve symptoms. Therefore, various therapeutic models need to be used to completely heal the client.
You will be trained to help a client go deeply into their own experiences, using respect, safety and compassion for the person. A basic theme is to do your own work so you can sty in your center, connect with th client and at the same time allow the client their ow, total experience
Healing and protecting your own inner vulnerability, you can protect the vulnerable Inner Child parts of another person during the process. The greater variety of skills you learn, the more you are able to help yourself and your clients integrate and transcend into wholeness.
