I’ve just discovered Heidi Hanson’s excellent website, “The Art of Healing Trauma” (http://www.new-synapse.com/aps/wordpress/) So much carefully written and helpful information! This website probably fits into my top five favourite trauma recovery sites. I just finished reading her recent post about the importance and benefits of processing trauma extremely slowly. The post is written largely from the perspective of somatic experiencing therapy or “SE”, which is a therapy modality that pays attention to the body in trauma and recovery. A fundamental tenet of SE is that the body has an innate ability to heal. I took a lot of notes as I read this short article, to help me absorb all of the information it contains.
Yours in healing,
