Posted by LP User on Sunday, June 2, 2013, In : trauma therapy

Babette Rothschild talks about safe trauma therapy- using an analogy of learning how to drive a car, she shows how this 'hitting the break' is essential in trauma therapy. Feeling safe whilst "driving a car" helps build confidence and trust.

Another analogy of a shaken up coca cola bottle portrays how easy it is to explode when working with a traumatised client. Trauma therapy must be done slowly...just like releasing a bottle of coke slowly, bit by bi...
