Our Goal

OUR GOAL

To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.

ACHIEVING OUR GOAL

Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.

As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.

These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 post per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.

This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.

Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.

We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.

The very best to you,
Felicity Lee

Title: LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF TRAUMA
October 3, 2014



Mini-Workshops: 1) Phases of Therapy, 2) Common Mistakes, 3) Releasing the Ties that Bind, and 4) How the Story Tells Itself


Format: Suitable for therapists, survivors, and supporters in audience.


The therapy of DID differs from standard therapy in important ways. This day long workshop is divided into four mini-workshops. The first reviews the phases of therapy, emphasizing containment strategies, enlisting the ego state system, hypnotic procedures and methods to metabolize trauma, and integration and wrap up. The second identifies common errors made by therapists and clients. The third workshop identifies strategies for decreasing attachment to perpetrators by working with internal parts identified with perpetrators. The fourth reviews some of the myriad ways that the client’s story tells itself non-verbally in reenactments, somatic symptoms, the therapeutic relationship and more.


Attendees who attend all four will be able to:
1. Describe the phases of therapy using an acronym ACT-AS-IF.
2. Identify six common mistakes made by therapists and clients.
3. List four interventions therapists can use to increase stability by working with introjects.

INTUITION AND SPIRITUALITY: GUIDANCE ON THIS SIDE OF THE VEIL


This workshop has been approved for “1"  CEUs by the Washington Chapter, National Association of Social Workers (NASW) for Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists and Licensed Mental Health Counselors.  Provider number is #1975-362


Many people with complex trauma histories have strong intuitive impressions and keen spiritual understandings.  Are they divine guidance or guidance from within?  Is spirituality a separate subject from trauma recovery or central to the healing path?  Can there be too much of a good thing?  What if ones therapist has a different understanding or was trained to leave spirituality out of the therapy room?  What if one feels betrayed by g*d?  This talk will discuss these and other questions for attendees to reflect upon.
Attendees will be able to articulate:
1. two ways that spirituality can benefit trauma recovery.
2. two ways that spirituality can impede trauma recovery.
3. identify two conflicting views of the role of spirituality in therapy.

This sounds really good. For several reasons I wouldn't be able to attend but so wish that I could. I have been telling people about it though. Got a couple of brochures out to interested individuals and there clinics.

I want to share this stuff with my therapist but I doubt she will give a sh... sorry a little blunt there. We'll see. I wrote a list of everything I want said because usually someone else is me goes to therapy and it leaves me voiceless. I think its awsome that your therapist would go to this with you. Mine believes the my DID will go away if she pretends I don't have it, tells one part to ignore the rest and pretends the rest are not really there. Every time there is an apointment I miss it but I get all this bickering in my head about who is mad at the therapist or someone crying because they think they are going to die or disapear. Anyways off topic. This confrence sounds great. Be sure and post what ya'all learned from it I would be interested to hear. I want so bad to connect with other people who have DID and (don't ignore it/deny it) People who really want to heal. You know. I'm sure every one of you on here get it.
