Mindsight In PTSD Recovery
One of the biggest problems in my PTSD experience and my recovery from PTSD was how fragmented I was and felt. Do you know what I mean?
It seemed like I had slivers of memories, a shattered sense of self and random sprinkles of what it meant to live a healthy, 'normal' life.
Healing PTSD, to me, became finding a way to pull everything back together. It meant re-integrating who I had been with who I had become, with who I wanted to be. (PTSD and Integration: The Path To Healing) Whew, that was a big job! And back then, I didn't have the benefit of Dr. Daniel Siegel's input - but you can!
PTSD Recovery: Putting Yourself Back Together
Author of the book, MINDSIGHT: The New Science of Personal Transformation, and the new book, BRAINSTORM: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain, Dr. Siegel is a revolutionary voice in the world of how we can create change, and how our brains are designed to help us do it.
In this audio, I share a little bit of what it means to integrate, plus why it's beneficial in PTSD recovery. Take a listen.
