The Hurt Child within the adult

This training offers a unique, energetic

approach to trauma. 

 

​You will learn how to: 

  • Meet surprising and unusual selves that inhabit the trauma landscape

  • Strengthen the selves that maintain everyday life 

  • Consult the Gatekeeper, a key self throughout this work

  • Identify certain primary selves that want to lead the trauma work 

  • Decipher dreams that bring wisdom about trauma from the unconscious

  • Listen to messages from the body that help guide the journey

  • Develop the Aware Center (Aware Ego), a high level of consciousness

Beyond these preparatory steps, this training will introduce you to specific ways of working with the part that carries the trauma, such as how to:

— Gently find this hurt part by contacting it “from a distance” 

— Create a Nestling Spot to foster awareness

— Care for the hurt part in ways that are counterintuitive

— Allow expression of the many different energies carried by the hurt part

 

At the end of this training, you will have a new view of trauma.

PREREQUISITE!

This training is only for people who already know Voice Dialogue, either through facilitating or receiving sessions. Basic Voice Dialogue will not be taught in this training -- we simply won't have time. You need to know about: primary and disowned selves, energetics, facilitation structure, and the Aware Ego Process.

 

If you are interested in this approach to trauma, but do not have Voice Dialogue experience, contact us for further possibilities.

Who is this training for?

  • Professionals who want to integrate this approach into their current practice

  • Other professionals, students, and interested persons who want to understand trauma better, from a Voice Dialogue perspective

  • Individuals on their own trauma journey who want to gain insight through the lens of selves and energies. This training is not a way to fully process your own trauma; that would require individual attention.
