How Healing Happens

Learn How PTSD Happens

New research has turned our understanding of trauma upside down. It's not in your mind -- it's in your brain. We now know adverse experiences in childhood have a huge impact on our whole lives.

Identify Signs of Dysregulation

When you feel numb, confused, clumsy and spaced out, it could be the PTSD talking. Dysregulation triggers everything from immune dysfunction to emotional overwhelm, and holds you back in life.

Practice Techniques to Re-Regulate

Once you learn these tools for re-regulation, it's easier to think clearly, sense danger and make smart choices. New options for healing (that didn't used to work) are now possible!

Change Self-Defeating Behaviors

With a calmer, clearer mind, it's easier to face the personal problems that have been re-traumatizing you, and to find joy in steadily making changes to live the happy, healthy, stable life you deserve.
