A Webinar with Dr. Lisa Firestone –
A trauma can be defined as any significant negative event or incident that shaped us– an impactful instance that made us feel bad, scared or ashamed. We have all experienced trauma. No matter how often we try to tell you ourselves to let go of the past or to convince ourselves that the ways we were hurt were no big deal, our history continues to affect us in ways of which we aren’t even aware. Research shows that when we fail to face and process the large and small traumas of our past, we can become stuck in our pain. We may struggle in our relationships and in countless, unconscious ways, we recreate our past in our present.
Attachment research has shown that making sense of our past and feeling the full pain of our childhood is the best predictor of our ability to form a healthier attachment with our own children. It also allows us to live more mindfully and enjoy better relationships in general. In this Webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will explain how processing our story can help free us of the pain of our past, so we can live fully in the present. Drawing upon attachment theory, psychological differentiation and Separation Theory, this Webinar will teach tools to identify and liberate ourselves from the old, unresolved traumas that limit us today. It will show how we can create a coherent narrative of our experiences, so they no longer hold the power to affect us in the same way.
