one night whilst discussing trauma,
it occurred to me that if we can be traumatised
then it should be possable to be detraumatised.
I registered this site to write up what I could learn about
which is more commonly known as trauma release.
There are many trauma release techniques
which are listed on the right hand column
anyone who has been traumatised may benifit
from the trauma release technique you are most comfortable with.
Types of trauma:
In late 2019 - early 2020 Australia experiences the worst Bush fires in our history,
I saw the need to suggest that trauma release may be of assistance
for those traumatised by these horendous Bush fires.
Yesterday I met several survivors of the Granville train desaster.
I make the list of trauma release techniques available.
survivors of the trauma of car collisions
survivors of the trauma of war.
survivors of sexual trauma
adult survivors .of child sexual abuse
adult survivors of sexual assault
male, female and LBGTI survivors.
sexual trauma, sexual abuse, sexual assault
which are reportable criminal acts.
sexual assault counselling is a profession
here we are discussion sexual trauma
as one form of trauma.
Of course each form of trauma has it's own dynamics
and applications and/ or combinations of therapy differ.
As survivors of trauma
we want to be understood
we want to be believed
we are looking for professionals who understand and care (empathesise)
Chaplains, Clergy and Counsellors with appropriate training can be of assistance
Helplines may assist.
Whilst talking it out / narative therapy is of assistance to many
it may clear the mind
though many experience long term flash backs.
trauma release techniques may assist .
in conjunction with talk therapies.
some trauma survivors need stratagies to build resistance
I would want to validate the reality of retraumatisation
and suggest trauma release and counselling
when one is retraumatised.
I would suggest counselling and strategising before
a retraumatising event.
eg visiting a burnt out home
passing the scene of a collision
a survivor of sexual assault
preparing for a triggering operation
or procedure or examination.
it's ok to get support.
it may help one process what happened
some find comfort in prayer
others use meditation
I am attempting to be relevant to a broad audience.
I am suggesting that trauma is neuro physiological
and therefore requires an interdisciplinary approach.
it is hoped this page may be of some assistance.
(Eg TAFE trained)
Sport for some
It is suggested that it is
more productive to
process the trauma
and to release the trauma
than to numb the pain.
whilst it is understood
sometimes the pain is unbearable
and numbing can bring relief
numbing out tends to have
which is to numb the pain.
numbing out in my view
is not the problem
the underlying problem is
the pain of the traumatic event.
survivors of trauma
often have to deal with
how they think we feel
when we don't feel like that at all.
Personally I want to be listened to.
I want options
I need my wishes to be respected.
