Treating Trauma Through the Five Phases

Alaine Duncan

The experience of trauma is as much a part of life as is falling in love, having family disagreements, and wondering how we fit in this life. And while we tend to focus on the problems that have their roots in traumatic experiences, it is also possible that we can become more resilient and anti-fragile by moving through traumatic experiences in a way that allows us to harvest the lessons of the experience.

In this course we explore aspects of modern bio-physiology, the insights and perspectives from somatic experiencing and how these relate to the five phases.

Listen in for a discussion of how the fact of trauma is less important than how we move through the cycle of resolution. 

As we know from Chinese medicine, when things stagnate there are going to be problems.

In This Conversation We Discuss:

  • Somatic experiencing, the phases and movements through the cycles of trauma
  • Clues to recognizing your patients are suffering through trauma
  • The role of the Vagus nerve
  • Coherence and the heart
