    The Role of Perceptions in Trauma Recovery

    in Psychology

    Healing is about many things, including how trauma affects the brain, plus processes to reverse and cope with those changes. Recovery is also about issues of perception that lead to behavioral change -- and how to transform your perceptions that support rather than hinder the healing process. On this episode Robert Rudelic, therapist and founder of Power Tapping, shares ideas, simple practices and action steps to help you move forward and get over fear.

So how does a caregiver navigate the post-trauma landscape? On this episode Michele Rosenthal answers the question: “Do I have to wait until my loved one is ready to have the courage to heal?”

    PARENTS in RECOVERY: I'm Back!!...............Really?

    in Self Help

    Show Topic: When parents are in the throes of their addiction it is no secret that their children suffer. Children of all age groups experience the effects of their parent's addiction, probably the older they are the worse the experience, with elementary and high school age probably being the worst group.  Resuming that parent - child relationship is not as easy as getting off drugs and jumping back into their lives. Its a process and some parents in recovery forget..............that its not all about YOU!  We'll discuss this process and ways to make that re-entry smoother.

    RECOVERY & RELATIONSHIPS: Why the Controversy?

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  Throughout the substance abuse treatment and recovery field the issue of relationships, relationships while in the midst of treatment, relationships after treatment, and when is the right time, continue to be a subject of considerable debate. Is there a general understanding and agreement that providers abide by or does it depend on the whims of the provider, the modality, or the milieu? We'll discuss, debate, and hopefully provide some perspective on this issue.
