Somatic Experiencing®, SE and Neuroaffective Psychotherapy, NAPT.
A single traumatic event (an accident or assault, for example) is called shock trauma (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD). Repetitive experiences of physical, emotional and / or sexual violence and of excessive demands often result in complex traumatization (complex PTSD). These happen usually in early childhood and are linked to traumatic relational experiences. This includes also the loss or the absence of emotional presence of important caregivers.
Somatic Experiencing® (SE) and Neuroaffective Psychotherapy (NAPT) offer effective concepts and methods to resolve both single traumata and complex traumatization as well as to diminish, step-by-step, the wide-ranging symptoms of stress and overload (like internal tension, insomnia, depletion, fatigue, inner emptiness, a sense of being frozen, alienation).
The purpose here is also to understand one’s early images of self, of life or of relationship and see them as patterns in order to then substitute them with new, sustainable and more satisfying inner images and patterns.
