And how you perceive and address your client’s trauma makes a huge difference.
But it’s a delicate balance.
How do you address past trauma if clients came in for something different?
How do you identify the existence of trauma through subtle cues like inadvertent jabs or intense responses to mild triggers?
And if you have a feeling that unresolved trauma is a source of conflict for the couple, how do you address it individually within the context of couples work?
Recently, I’ve received so many questions about how to support clients through this process that I put together a 90-minute recorded training called Addressing Trauma Through Couples Therapy.
I firmly believe that couples work is uniquely suited to resolve unaddressed, painful trauma. By integrating solid theory and actionable steps, you can set a course of treatment that supports your client’s transformation.
