Memory In Trauma

Instead of explicit memories we can have implicit memories (I first heard this term from Babette Rothschild, 2000), here the activation is chiefly in the primitive brain (brain stem, cerebellum and limbic system). The client on the table becomes scared when you touch her neck and too much changes too soon, but she does not really know why she is getting upset.

Opting Out of the Drama Cycle

In this short video you will receive a conceptual overview of the Drama Cycle, a 1- 2 hour training often conducted by Connections Homes founder, Pam Parish. Getting caught in the vicious cycle of drama creates undercurrents of anger and hopelessness in many families. Understanding what drives ongoing drama among family members provides a powerful tool for improving relationships and overall communication. In this training, you’ll learn how to recognize your own triggers and the drama cycles in your family, enabling you to teach your children how to better communicate for the health of the entire family unit.
