Healing from Trauma

This week, the discussion focuses on how the brain is resilient and can be healed from the effects of trauma in a person’s life. Dr Jan will be joined by a colleague, Ruth Young. Ruth has been a NeuroDevelopmentalist for 15 years, is a pastor’s wife of 37 years, and an author of many article on the NeuroDevelopmental Approach and a great study guide, Release From Fear. Ruth was a victim of childhood abuse and knows firsthand the healing effects of the NeuroDevelopmental Approach in her own life as well as those in her practice. She will share how this approach can have an amazingly positive effect on those who have suffered traumas from any of the many causes, including adoption, abuse, neglect, fever, surgery, vaccinations, and pre-mature birth to mention a few.

Many families that adopt a child later find that their child behaves oddly or reacts in an overblown way to typical everyday life events that are hard to understand. The brain’s number one responsibility is to keep us alive; it will do anything, even to the point of compromising itself, to accomplish that goal. The good news is that the brain can be regenerated and healthy parts of the brain can take over the function of the damaged part. It just takes specific stimulation to the brain over time to make that happen. In this episode, you will learn some positive steps you can take to help yourself or the people in your life who may have experienced trauma.
