Helping Clients Tolerate the Intolerable

How can we help clients process their trauma without reliving it? And how do we help clients come back from LOW arousal before completely shutting down?

These are just a few of the important issues that my friends at NICABM will be getting into in this week’s free broadcast of the Treating Trauma Master Series.

The top experts in treating trauma will share the latest information on working with dysregulation:

  • How to Bring a Client Back from a State of Hypoarousal
  • How to Help Clients Calm Their Bodies and Reengage the Thinking Brain
  • How to Know Whether a Client’s Dysregulation Is a Symptom of Bipolar Disorder or Trauma
  • Strategies to Help Clients Tolerate Distress After Trauma
  • The Critical Difference in the Brain Between Processing Trauma and Reliving Trauma
  • The Neural Breakdown That Opens a Client Up to PTSD (and How to Reverse It)

Holistic Medicine

C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

We may have grown up feeling unloved or believing we had to perform heroic feats to deserve love. True love and spirituality are indivisible: There can be no love without the selflessness of an evolved spirit and no spirituality that is not based on love. When you set about finding love, you will encounter everything from sexual obsession and needs-based love that takes more than it gives, to “free love Every healthy relationship requires love.

Conversations with G: A Physician’s Encounter with Heaven

C. Norman Shealy
Balboa Press (Jul 19, 2018)
Softcover $14.99 (190pp)

Conversations with G mixes healing and angelic presences into a unique, spiritual autobiographical tale.

C. Norman Shealy’s sometimes engaging memoir Conversations with G explores healing and wholeness.

The book is both a how-to and a memoir. It includes entertaining accounts from Shealy’s youth, such as moments he spent with psychics who seemed to possess intuitive personal knowledge about him. It also traces the years he spent looking for love in Boston. Through all of its personal stories, the book remains most focused on Shealy’s mystical evolution and transformation.

The ethical challenges that arose while Shealy trained at Massachusetts General Hospital are covered, as is his formation as a spiritual healer. He employed a technique called “Biogenics,” which involves being present, deep relaxation, sensory biofeedback and control, balancing emotions, and becoming spiritually attuned. Shealy put such heady ideas into practice in his work to heal others.

Angelic encounters with G also play into Shealy’s unique approach to patient care. He discusses his work as a physician with this mysterious character, who in turn proposes novel, alternative approaches to medicine, such as using crystals to detoxify a patient’s earth energy. G’s advice also concerns chakras, which become a recurring point of focus.

Still, for all of G’s importance, he is a scant presence in the text; his wisdom comes through dialogue that is reproduced verbatim. G himself remains an unknown quantity. The text similarly becomes meandering and laborious, focused on making arguments about the healing process over recreating sympathetic scenes.

Shealy’s interest in alternative care dominates and is filtered through his own story. His “kundalini,” or enlightenment, experience is particularly interesting, occurring outside of established religion. The spirituality expressed is a mélange of different traditions, most clearly tied to a mystical strain of Christianity.

Arguments about the ineffectiveness of traditional Western healing methods are made through case studies that show Shealy incorporating his mystical ideas. Some of the healing borders on miraculous—involving past life regressions and confrontations with evil spirits—and sometimes strains belief. Angelically inspired acupuncture points are detailed with overwhelming specificity. The book’s language and writing style are educational and learned. The text pauses to explain its ideas, exploring chakras, personality archetypes, karma, and other introductory spiritual material. Bold text is used to highlight key ideas and themes.

Still, the book is not entirely any one thing—neither fully a spiritual healing text nor a memoir. Shealy’s personal story bleeds into instructions for alternative care, and the narrative does not flow well as a result. Shealy’s journey is often lost in the mix.

The Neurobiology of Attachment

Why can trauma be so devastating for our clients’ relationships? The answer could lie in the brain.

That’s why our friends at NICABM will be looking at the neurobiology of attachment in Session 2 of the Treating Trauma Master Series.

It’s free to watch every session of this 5-part series at the time of broadcast – you just have to sign up here.

In this session, you’ll hear from Dan Siegel, MD; Pat Ogden, PhD; Allan Schore, PhD; Bessel van der Kolk, MD; and Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD.

Session 2 is about to get underway, so here’s the agenda:

  • How to Build Secure Attachment After Trauma (Even When the Client Has Never Felt Safe with Another Person)
  • What Many Practitioners Misunderstand When Helping a Person Feel Safe
  • What Happens in the Brain When an Unhealthy Attachment Bond Forms
  • The Common Brain Bias That Could Break Attunement with Your Client
  • How to Work with the Body to Reverse the Feeling of Victimhood
