Event description

Description


Growing up can be painful. Whether marked by shame, alcoholism, domestic violence, physical abuse, sexual abuse, religious rigidity, or medical challenges, few things impact our adult lives as profoundly as childhood trauma.


Our unresolved childhood stories follow us, often making it difficult or impossible to truly thrive as adults. Even though we tell ourselves it wasn’t that bad, that we can push through, that it is long forgotten, that others had it worse, or even that we left it at the cross, still its impact persists.


Trauma influences us in three important areas: how we see and feel about ourselves, how we see and relate to others, and how we experience our relationship with God. All three of these areas are pivotal to our quality of life, enjoyment, and fulfillment.


This workshop is designed to help you better understand the nature of childhood trauma, how we respond to these types of hurts as children, the lasting impact of abuse, and finally the road to recovery. You'll find understanding, direction, and hope for survivors, for partners and those who support them.



WORKSHOP AGENDA:

Morning: The Trauma Process

  • Am I Crazy or Hurt? Definitions and Denial

  • The Life We Live: Today’s Behavior & Yesterday’s Trauma

  • Old Survivor Skills: What Abuse Did and How.

  • Memories: How They Work and What We Do With Them.


Afternoon: The Recovery Process

Lessons We Learned: Today’s Thinking & Yesterday’s Trauma

The Grief We Carry: Grieving the Losses of Yesterday’s Hurts

The Recovery Journey: Healing Inner Hurts

Finding Help: Where to look. Who to trust. How to decide.



“For most of my life I’ve carried the shame and guilt inside. Is there any hope?”


“I have bursts of uncontrollable anger, even with people I love. I don’t know why.”


“I can’t handle it when other people get angry. I feel overwhelmed with panic.”


"Something has to change."
