Healing Trauma and Transform
Post traumatic stress is a normal reaction of the human brain when under major stress. Memories go in through a route where they are recalled by sensory cues or situational memories and not language.
This has people with PTSD feeling as if there must be something wrong with them as other people don't jump when they hear fireworks or smell colognes. Other people can sleep and relax, etc. The brain purposely uses the fight or flight brain as it is 40,000 times faster than the prefrontal cortex and has had the job of keeping humans alive in the midst of dangers or threats.
Transforming PTSD into resilience means we clear out the situational memories and allow the person to decide whether they want to be angry, sad, panicky or not rather than have them arise from the automatic parts of the brain.
