Why traditional trauma treatment methods make things worse
for the client – and what to do instead

See what the legends of trauma treatment are saying about Janina’s Living Legacy of Trauma materials!

Traditional therapy aims to heal trauma by urging the client to share their experiences with a safe validating witness.

But clients revealed that telling the story often engulfed them in overwhelming sensory or emotional responses that felt re-traumatizing rather than healing.

The reality is successful treatment is NOT about dealing with traumatic memories. It’s about helping the client recover from the enduring effects of trauma.

This “living legacy” of trauma shows up as intense physical, perceptual, and emotional reactions to everyday things. Reactivated by seemingly harmless reminders of the original situation their body tenses up, their heart pounds...

They see horrifying images... Experience sudden fear, pain, or rage. They may startle as if facing Godzilla, even in the safety of their own homes...or your office.

These unconscious reactions can make the client feel “crazy,” leading to a long list of symptoms including self-destructive impulses, substance abuse, disconnection, anxiety, depression, and more.

Dr. Janina Fisher saw the troubles with this “storytelling” approach from the start of her career. She knew there had to be a better way. So, she’s devoted her 40-year career to transforming trauma treatment from continued suffering to a positive, informed process.

When you register for this all-new training, you’ll discover the results of her research and experience, and her unique methods for helping clients defeat traumatic symptoms... And finally feel present, hopeful, and in control of their body and mind.

The Body as a Shared Whole: Using Visualization Techniques to Treat Dissociation (Digital Seminar)
with Janina Fisher, PhD

Disconnection from self in the context of traumatic experience is a survival strategy that allows survivors to disown what is happening and disown the parts that are victimized.

The cost of dissociation as an instinctive mental survival response is often lifelong internal conflicts, shame and self-loathing, difficulty self-soothing, and complications in relationships with others.

Despite feeling irretrievably damaged, all humans have a brain capable of visualizing or imagining experiences of acceptance, closeness, and comfort that evoke the same somatic sensations associated with early secure attachment.

Helping clients discover their split-off younger selves and imaginatively bring them “home” spontaneously leads to an internal sense of warmth and safety they have never known. 

In this seminar, Dr. Janina Fisher explores the therapeutic power of using somatic experience to foster internal attachment to clients’ most deeply disowned younger selves.
