The Ten Minute Trauma Intervention Applying Resource Therapy Successfully

Be like the butterfly and transform with Resource Therapy training

On a phone call my client had become very distressed upon finding out news regarding the family member who had sexually assaulted her as a young girl.

Feelings of low self worth and trauma are often intergenerationally transmitted

Part of her was angry and had naturally attempted to find solace with her mother who is in her 80’s. Unfortunately her mother is unable to offer emotional support – saying to her daughter ” I was raped in my 20’s and got over it,  so just get over it and put it behind you.”

 

Understandably my client felt  justifiable anger and disappointment with her mothers response.

I said to her we actually haven’t worked with this hurt part and it would be good to do to address this part directly when I  saw her next.

She began to cry and speak in a softer tone and I said ” I can hear your hurt part- you sound younger – can I call you ” Little One”. My client said yes. I said thank you and I would like to get you the help you need right now, is that ok with you Little One? Yes she responded affirmatively.

I called out the client’s name Jenny, I know if you saw a little girl who was feeling hurt, sad and alone, like you love your own daughter, you would crawl over glass to get to her to help her. ” Yes.” Jenny how would you want to help her? Jenny responds I would want to cuddle her.  I said thank you that’s wonderful and super helpful – what can I call you? “Nice Mum.”

I said “Nice Mum you are awesome thanks for being here. Just you reach out to Little One as she’s all alone and draw her into your heart right now and let the warm glow of your unconditional love, safety, support and sanctuary flow into her being like a wonder wave.” I bet Nice Mum you love to do this… She said “yes”

And Nice Mum what do you want “Little One to know?”” I accept you”replied Nice Mum . I went back to Little One. “Little One” how does that feel you heard Nice Mum she accepts you and you are in her heart?” Little One “Safe. And Accepted.” That is wonderful, I said and I am so glad you have the unconditional love, support and safety all little girls and boys deserve.

I had tears in my eyes, I was so moved.

My client said ” I feel complete, its like I feel totally accepted deep in the catacombs of my being.” “It is so profound I don’t have the depth of words to describe the peace I feel. ”

This small exchange happened in the last ten minutes of a 40 minute phone call, demonstrating the effectiveness of Resource Therapy.

I am continually  amazed at how rapidly Resource Therapy’s trauma interventions work for long lasting client change. This is why I am passionate about bringing Resource Therapy training to the world  of therapy.

Super excited to be training the Clinical in September – come join us!

Come rejoin the flock with a resit of Resource Therapy

I am  lucky enough to be on the receiving end of a good deal of therapy training in the past wee while. Of course while it is necessary as a psychologist for continuing professional development points  I thoroughly enjoy experiencing new concepts and education.

We were down in Blackwood with Gordon and Anna at their Clinical lending a hand and enjoying catching up with them. Plus the bonus of meeting new Resource Therapists.

My jetlag has finally remitted – boy it takes a toll some of those days, thank goodness for melatonin. In the USA I had the privilege of doing a Behind Closed Doors Seminar with Michele Weiner Davis a real super hero in marital therapy. What a legend she is and I learnt so much.

I'd redo a good educational workshop in a heartbeat

You know I would go back and do a repeat of the training in a heartbeat.

We do learn by repetition and for me mastering the new skills learnt takes loads of practice, trial and error. To be honest I often feel a bit deskilled after after a workshop, as I try and incorporate my understandings into clinical practice.

That is why we offer Clinical Resource Therapy resits. Basically you return and repeat the training. It’s been super helpful to me to do this. Every time I have picked up more and refined the art of Resource Therapy.

So we extend you the same opportunity. If you have attended one of our Clinical training’s or a fellow trainer we offer the workshop resit at 50% of for the second time around and third time around is free. We simply ask for a small contribution for refreshments.

So if you are wavering, why not come and benefit from a repeat. As you know every day we do a live session, these are unique and cannot be replicated. It is in seeing how the therapy works in the live sessions that really has benefited me the most.

Back from Las Vegas and ready to roll for 2020.

Resource Therapy has a lot to offer therapists. A perfect addition to your therapy skillset and toolbox. Ready to train in the USA - 2020.

Hi guys,  have been over to the USA scouting possible locations for bringing Resource Therapy to America.

I loved my visit. Las Vegas was a hoot and so hot!! Thank you to the America people too. Everyone was so kind, polite and friendly.

Attending a Michele Weiner-Davis workshop – a couple therapy legend and new friend. Michele is super talented at bringing out the best state to progress marriages on the brink. So exciting to learn her Solution Oriented model, a further development of brief Solution focused therapy. I did training back in the day with Brian Cade and bought his book he wrote with Bill O’Hanlon – A Brief guide to Brief Therapy.

Click the book picture to see the book on Amazon.

As many of you know Chris and I run Marriage Works and if you want more info and  For Michele’s books please click this link.

So we are thinking of different USA locations – love to hear your recommendations please. It’s looking like 2020 to return in 2021. Most likely we will do the Clinical training in two five day units.

Loved seeing these native Big horn Sheep in Boulder City, Nevada USA. Perhaps this could be the Resource Therapy Institutes next training destination? Say 2020?

How glorious to see wildlife in the wild. Truly one of my favorite things to do. Pretty pleased it wasn’t a bear or a rattlesnake though!

Love to hear your thoughts and comments – please spread the word. So happy to chat to folks who wish to know more about Resource Therapy and how it will benefit your client work. It’s a brief parts therapy perfectly adaptable to your preferred therapy model – I know we get attached to our learnings and fair enough.

Thanks for reading. Glad the Sydney winter weather has been kind. The Mojave desert was getting up to 118 Fahrenheit, melting point for me at 47 Celsius!
