Live Call with Dr. Janina Fisher on her book: “Transforming the Living Legacy of Trauma”
May 29, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Traumatic experiences leave a living legacy of scars that often linger for years and decades after the events have ended. It is often assumed that retelling the story of what happened resolves these effects. However, survivors report a different experience: Telling and retelling the story of what happened to them often reactivates their traumatic responses, overwhelming them rather than resolving the trauma.
To transform traumatic experiences, survivors need ways to work with symptoms that intrude on their daily activities, preventing them from living beyond the trauma.
In this book, Dr. Janina Fisher offers step-by-step strategies that trauma survivors can use alone or in collaboration with their therapist. It includes simple diagrams that make sense of the confusing feelings and physical reactions survivors experience, and worksheets for practicing healing skills.
