You cannot go back to who you used to be or could have been.
Trauma has stripped away your sense of safety, security and control. Now, every moment is fueled by the underlying feelings of anxiety, dread and fear. But the biggest problem you face isn’t the danger in the outside world—it’s the chaos and confusion inside the core of who you are. Traditional trauma treatment ignores the identity crisis at the center of the post-trauma lifestyle. Focused on stress relief processes and symptom reduction programs, popular treatment protocols miss the biggest issue: You can’t feel safe or in control if you feel disconnected from or confused about who you are. Too many survivors spend all of their money, time and energy chasing relief in programs that cause them to feel more powerless, hopeless and insecure. How would things change if instead of looking for a magic bullet outside you reclaimed a sense of safety and control by reconnecting to yourself on the inside? There’s one big question to answer in your post-trauma world:
Who am I now??
Your success in answering it directly affects the success of your recovery. In fact, the sooner you start exploring the answer the sooner you will be able to handle uncertainty, create a sense of safety and control, reduce symptoms, add momentum to your recovery and reach your healing vision. Your Life After Trauma: Powerful Practices To Reclaim Your Identity offers a personal approach to redefining and reconstructing your sense of self. Through vignettes, self-assessments, easy-to-grasp concepts and step-by-step exercises Michele Rosenthal (a survivor herself) guides you from disconnection and disorder to connection and integration. Stop living with the sensation that you are not who you used to be or could have been. Feel more calm, confident and in control of yourself, your world and your recovery because you know who you are and, more importantly, are actively creating who you most deeply want to be.
