Working with Strong Emotions & Trauma - What to do
Internal Family Systems “Parts Work”
Psycho Magic / Psycho Drama / Gestalt
In this workshop we will explore what happens when we are in a situation where strong emotional experiences arise within you or within someone you are holding space for. Whether it is a past trauma that’s being activated or when someone is having a strong present emotional experience or reaction, we can offer compassion, empathy, a contact statement, or acknowledgement of what that person may be feeling. We also may identify what the need is behind the emotion/reaction and offer the nurturing, missing experience that we have always wanted to hear and feel.
Oftentimes when someone is in a heightened emotional state it may look like rage, resentment, sadness, grief, guilt, shame, blame or total ecstasy. When we can identify any particular impulse within ourselves and/or the other, We can soothe the part of us that feels triggered while also naming it. We get to curiously explore those feelings, thoughts or impulses. We then have the opportunity to invite the other person to have some space to explore and identify which “parts” are being activated within them. We offer an invitation to stay present with their experience to see what wisdom reveals itself. There's no right or wrong. Being vulnerable and truthful about what we are experiencing can lead to deep healing and harmony.
When we work with Parts we can reclaim lost fragments of our soul, the younger "us’s" that make up the whole of who we are. We can heal intergenerational traumas, as well as global traumas. By working with Parts, we have access to the whole spectrum of our unconscious behaviors. By holding sacred and safe bubbles for them to truly express themselves we bring in new ways of relating, including boundaries and healthy reparenting. We will heal our core wounds.
