Understanding the Traumatized Child: Trauma and Healing
Product #: PECT7
By Magna Systems |
Adults who have suffered trauma in childhood often have difficulty expressing anger. This program features trauma expert Jane Middleton-Moz, who states that “Anger can be like a balloon. You keep blowing it up until it finally pops, and then only look at the result of the popping. But we also have to look at the blowing up process, which is often the pain and rage caused by childhood trauma.”
This program also features interviews with Vickie, Cynthia, and Curtis, adults recovering from childhood trauma. Curtis, for example, is battling addiction and is beginning to explore the connections between a violent childhood and his current substance-abuse problems. Recovery from childhood trauma ultimately depends on accepting and understanding the original trauma, and then relying on the same survival skills that one had as a child.
