A Somatic Approach to Moving Beyond Trauma When trauma occurs, the logical mind gets hijacked. Â Physiology takes over to protect it, but in doing so, it leaves an imprint. Â Because the body wants to ensure nothing like that is going to happen again, any reminder or trigger can instigate automatic physical responses. Â These damaging responses can affect all aspects of a personâ€™s life, and in some cases, create an emotional paralysis. Â The Mind-Body interventions, case studies, cognitive-behavioral exercises, and case studies are combined in a straightforward manner that makes it easier to begin the process of looking at unresolved trauma and taking the necessary steps to begin the healing process. Â Both somatic exercises and mind-body interventions are presented in ways that are easy to understand and simple enough to integrate into a recovery process.
