In this post 9/11 world therapists need to expand their toolboxes to deal with trauma and its effects. This book provides a new way of dealing with the devastating emotional residue of a traumatic event. It centres on the innovative application of hypnotherapy to help trauma victims self-actualise', regain their lives, and move forward again. It outlines the effects of trauma on mind and body, and provides comprehensive systems and treatment plans for the mental disorders caused or exacerbated by trauma.
Many people are familiar with the famous fight' or flight' response to trauma, but few know about the freeze' response. Freeze' is the most dangerous of the trio since it inhibits any reaction and leaves the victim immobile. It can lead directly to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Also included is a brief survey of brain research and its implications. Dr Warren takes readers on a brief journey of self-discovery to unlock their full self-potential and raise it to a new level.
