Emerging From Trauma with Belleruth Naparstek


SKU: 3068. Category: . Tags: .

Program Description

Many of us have suffered a traumatic incident in our lives. All of us have been affected by the events of 9/11. Too often these traumas continue to haunt us long after the original experience, so that we suffer a form of posttraumatic stress. Psychotherapist Belleruth Naparstek discovered that conventional psychotherapeutic techniques were of little use in treating posttraumatic stress – in fact, they often made matters worse. She realized that “now more than ever we need to be able to recapture our sense of mastery over the moment and over ourselves, and get to some sort of peaceful center so we can cope and transcend these very tough times.” By applying a simple, non-invasive technique in her treatment of war veterans, rape victims, people who have been sexually abused, even survivors of 9/11, Naparstek found that many of them experienced deep, transformative healing. In this breakthrough interview, she shares how using multi-sensory images to bring about real healing from emotional trauma, and can also improve physical illnesses such as diabetes and fibromyalgia. Best of all, it’s a technique that each of us can use, any time, any place. (Hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
