Tonight's special guest is Dr Jaime Romo from San Diego is a returning NAASCA family member who has been with us numerous times. As his web site states, "Dr. Jaime Romo is an educator, consultant, and author. He promotes healing from abuse and the prevention of child sexual abuse, particularly abuse by religious authorities or in the context of religious settings." He offers numerous services, including seminars and consulting, and writes workbooks and a newsletter. Of special note is his, "Healing the Sexually Abused Heart: A Workbook for Survivors, Thrivers and Supporters." Jaime specifically wants to talk tonight about trauma, how it works, how it's generally treated / mis-treated, and some solutions. He recently wrote about Traumatic Incident Reduction, an efficient means of addressing post-traumatic stress disorder from a variety of life events, including rape, physical and mental abuse, combat, and child abuse. "Even though we may not consciously remember the details of a buried memory," he says, "it still acts on us and has the power to make us feel it again, as if the trauma is still happening. This is why memory has such an ever-present impact on us. And why it is so important to address those memories and feelings in a structured and safe environment." The majority of clients receiving TIR sessions experience significant improvement within just 25-35 hours of treatment. Jaime is a certified TIR facilitator, and he'll tell us about the Traumatic Incident Reduction sessions he's facilitating in Carlsbad, CA
