In this episode, we continue our exploration of the application of the Brainspotting modality.
Brainspotting is a modality discovered by Dr. David Grand. Please visit www.brainspotting.com to learn more.
Our guest, Jana Glass, discusses perinatal trauma and how we can heal from these experiences.
Here are the seven mantras from this episode:
Mantra #1: Sometimes our efforts to help/heal ourselves can blossom into a professional development project.
Mantra #2: There are many opportunities for trauma outside of the actual birth process.
Mantra #3: No human being is exempt from trauma
Mantra #4: The definition of birth trauma is not limited to the mom or the infant (partners, healthcare practitioners and other players can be involved)
Mantra #5: Intrusive thoughts cannot be healed through wishing them to go away.
Mantra #6: A gift of Brainspotting is that it can take the trigger out of a negative story.
Mantra #7: Physical isolation does not have to mean social isolation (specific to the COVID19 pandemic).
