Welcome to Sips of Sanity for the month of July! Karen and Kelly are discussing a very important topic that is affecting our entire planet in many different ways and that is PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The intention for this mini series is to draw greater awareness not just to the effects of PTSD, but to the process itself so that individuals are better able to identify those events in their lives that generate the unwanted physiological and emotional responses PTSD is responsible for. This process is what allows people to care for themselves properly and seek the proper help from qualified professionals.
Wrapping up the week discussing various examples of PTSD and how it affects the majority of us, Karen and Kelly are focusing this week on where PTSD resides in the physical body from the point of injury (mental, physical or emotional) to the very present moment of a victim’s life. The ladies talk about the common symptoms people complain about and the personal responsibility that victims then have to take the personal power over their own lives.
Based on a non-linear idea that our behaviours are preceded by emotion, our emotion by events and thoughts and that those thoughts and events can affect and be affected by a fundamental belief system, Karen and Kelly are simply and slowly dissecting this process so that listeners can identify themselves as this process relates to them and begin to choose how they move forward in their own journey of healing.
