Understanding the PTSD Healing Process
All practitioners will probably meet at least a few trauma-suffering patients in their professional life. Unfortunately, there will probably be many more than just a few.
Sometimes the trauma will be overt and obvious. At other times the patient might suppress the trauma or deny its having a major role in his/her life. In this case the practitioner might fail to sense its existence and misdiagnose the medical problem.
The body, however, cannot lie or hide. When one knows the language of trauma, one can recognize it and assist in its healing.
Treating trauma has huge potential for healing; on the other hand, even the most devoted but unskilled practitioner can unintentionally cause damage or aggravate the trauma.
The seminar will delve into the depths of trauma, how to recognize its existence and work with post-traumatic stress disorder.
The seminar is suitable for Chinese medicine practitioners and body therapists alike.
