Working Through Defenses After Trauma
As we work on our healing and growth, it is important to examine all of the ways that we use potentially poor or uninformed coping strategies.
“Feeling the need to be busy all the time is a trauma response.” There’s a belief that what we call personality is actually how we protect ourselves from the anxiety and depression that comes from our wounds. Our trauma shapes us in so many ways. Some shut down and close off, while others distract at all cost and appear productive or hard-working. As we work on our healing and growth, it is important to examine all of the ways that we use potentially poor or uninformed coping strategies. So many of these were developed to maintain a sense of safety from people and things that are perhaps no longer part of our world, but are now deeply integrated into our daily practices.
It can be a lonely journey, but You Are Not Alone. Join panel members for this very important webinar discussion on their own journey with working through personal defenses. Panel members will share personal stories of survival and holistic techniques to support you in the sacred process of reclaiming yourself in healing. You deserve to be respected and heard!
The format of this event is a group panel that discusses and has conversations around different aspects of healing from trauma. We have anywhere between 4-9 people on the panel and are always open to anyone wanting to join the panel. We set this event up as a Zoom webinar, not a meeting, to maintain anonymity of our attendees, so audience members will not be seen.
There is a chat room, and you can ask questions and be invited to unmute yourself if you desire. Your name will be displayed in the chat, so please feel free to change your name to protect your identity in any way that you see fit.
