Trauma Healing Learning: Death Be Gone, Part 2

blink-1024x512-ep34-thl.png

If answers are withheld about something that went wrong in a medical context, trauma healing can be delayed years, if not decades. But we can be proactive about our own healing, despite this setback. Forgiveness is powerful. Self-compassion is powerful. It is possible to metabolize the generational wounds we have inherited, and make different choices so we can avoid passing on those wounds to our children.

Trauma Healing Learning: Death Be Gone, Part 1

blink-1024x512-ep33-thl.png

The ability to reflect on our lives is what makes us human, able to construct a moral framework, look for meaning, and make decisions. Louise explores this extraordinary human capacity in today’s Trauma Healing Learning. While some things are beyond our control, we can choose how we respond, making decisions that reduce suffering and keep us rooted in the present. Louise also reflects on the 13th-century Sufi poet Rumi, and his poem that speaks of the self as a house.

Trauma Healing Learning: Peripheral Friends

blink-1024x512-ep32-thl.png

Frontline trauma workers may be more prone than others to compassion fatigue, secondary trauma, and substance abuse, but they aren’t the only ones who might find themselves numbing out. Drawing from her experience teaching conflict transformation to workers in crisis situations, as well as her own experience in the ICU, Louise explores what trauma-informed care might look like for the medical community, and gives reasons to believe that, even in times of trauma and tragedy, there is a way through without losing yourself in the process. Louise also explores why medical staff might rely so heavily on narcotics for pain management, and the deeper implications for trauma healing.

Past trauma, either personally, or collectively takes a toll on our bodies. It can also give us valuable information to handle current traumatic situations.  We may just need to take the time to pause, get curious and ask, “WHY is this bothering me so much? What am I remembering that is triggering this reaction in my body?” Louise gives us tips on how we can sit and get to the heat of it in order to handle it with grace, head-on.  You may want to share these tips with a friend or family member to begin to digest past traumas, or give a lift to someone going through a traumatic situation now.

Episode 28: Tell Him Everything Trauma Healing Learnings

Blink of an Eye Podcast Episode 28 Trauma Healing Learnings

Medical information should be complete, forthcoming and easy to digest. But when you have many people at many levels involved in the care of a loved one, they all interpret the truth differently. They may think it’s complete, but they can only share what they understand and what they feel they are permitted to share. Then we have the job to decide how much medical truth is to be shared with not only the patient, but others who are emotionally invested and whom the patient relies upon. Louise walks us through the questions to consider in various scenarios to help us have the conversation before it becomes necessary to have the conversation. And she takes a look at how such conversations might ease the later trauma integration journey.

Episode 27: No Time for Tears Trauma Healing Learnings

Blink of an Eye Podcast Episode 27: No Time for Tears Trauma Healing Learnings

Trauma takes a long-term toll on the body, especially if all we do is store it away and simply say, “I held it together, I’m fine, it’s over.” If it were only that simple. What about tears? Is a good cry helpful or not? Trauma can settle into our bodies and cause us trouble years later. Holding it together may be commendable, but it’s only a Band-Aid. You deserve more than a temporary fix so you can get back to living life fully.  The good news is there are many guides available to help us through trauma. Come hear about ones that are available for you at your fingertips and about the miracles of the body to restore itself.
