@thebodykeepsthescore "For a hundred years or more, every textbook of psychology and psychotherapy has advised that some method of talking about distressing feelings can resolve them. However, as we’ve seen, the experience of trauma itself gets in the way of being able to do that. No matter how much insight and understanding we develop, the rational brain is basically impotent to talk the emotional brain out of its own reality. I am continually impressed by how difficult it is for people who have gone through the unspeakable to convey the essence of their experience. It is so much easier for them to talk about what has been done to them—to tell a story of victimization and revenge—than to notice, feel, and put into words the reality of their internal experience. Our scans had revealed how their dread persisted and could be triggered by multiple aspects of daily experience. They had not integrated their experience into the ongoing stream of their life. They continued to be “there” and did not know how to be “here”—fully alive in the present. Three years after being a participant in our study Marsha came to see me as a patient. I successfully treated her with EMDR, the subject of chapter 15." #besselvanderkolk #thebodykeepsthescore #limbicsystem #emdr #ptsd #cptsd #developmentaltrauma #rapevictim #familyincest #dissociation #did #bpd #panicattack #anxiety #majordepression #bingeeating #bingedrinking #addiction #dissociativeidentitydisorder #dissociativedisorder #somaticexperiencing #traumainformedyoga #bodywork #cptsdrecovery #childhoodtrauma #developmentaltrauma #traumatherapy
