“Trauma results in a fundamental reorganisation of the way mind and brain manage perceptions. It changes not only how we think and what we think about, but also our very capacity to think. We have discovered that helping victims of trauma find the words to describe what has happened to them is profoundly meaningful but usually is not enough. The act of telling the story doesn’t necessarily alter the automatic physical and hormonal responses of the bodies that remain hyper vigilant, prepared to be assaulted or violated at any time. For real change to take place, the body needs to learn that danger has passed and to live in the reality of the present.” Bessel Van Der Kolk PhotoCredit: Frank Verhaulst
