Trauma Reactions: Breaking Free of Harmful Behaviors & Exploitive Relationships
Marnie Ferree, M.A.
Early life trauma produces wounds in the mind and spirit that have long-term effects on behavior and relationships. This workshop examines the nature of trauma and outlines the eight trauma reactions it creates, especially the “trauma bond” in which people replay the wounds of the past in current relationships. Participants learn effective biblical strategies for helping individuals break free by healing from trauma. One key tool is the “trauma egg” exercise, which will be explained. Learning Objectives: Participants will: 1.Identify forms of invasion and abandonment trauma. 2.Understand trauma reactions that trap an individual in destructive behavior and relationships. 3.Learn how Christian counselors can help heal trauma wounds and intervene with their predictable results. 4.Develop an understanding of the trauma egg and how it’s used. Presented at the 2005 Breaking the Bonds of Sexual Addiction – Training for Professionals and Pastors. This set of three cds is appropriate for professionals.
