Complex trauma (CPTSD) is about relationship trauma/interpersonal trauma that we experience, often in childhood. And, the holidays just might be the biggest triggers of all time for our childhood trauma and/or our chronically wounding histories of interpersonal trauma.
Everywhere- we see, hear and feel the “fantasy” of the holidays – often the holidays we wished we had in our own childhoods, and those holiday dreams and fantasies we also may wish we had today.
This video explores our holiday triggers, and provides some tips and tools for dealing with complex PTSD, and how we can take control by standing in our power, and using strategies to go from just surviving our holiday trauma– to thriving alongside, or in spite of our holiday CPTSD.
I’ve made it available in the video, but if you would like to join my new mailing list and also receive a copy of ❤️”HOLIDAY SELF LOVE AFFIRMATIONS”❤️ to help keep your well-being front and center during the holidays, please feel free to provide your email.
I promise to only send therapy and psychology-related resources, as I am working to increase ways to provide more access to mental health resources, tools and tips.💕
