Here’s How Traumatic Memory Works
Many times we don’t even exactly know what sets it off, but there it is.
I’m a big believer in identifying and putting words to the messages we take in from the original trauma – having to do how we view our world, the safety of our world and the people in it.
Neuroplasticity, EMDR and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
are not therapy, but they provide tools to learn to use.
I just offered you an overview about how traumatic experiences are processed by the brain.
If you find yourself encountering newly released memories of sexual assault visit RAINN’s National Sexual Assault Online Hotline or the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s website.
Or call 800.656.HOPE (4673) to be connected with a trained staff member from a sexual assault service provider in your area.
