Event description

Description

Unresolved trauma within a family system is sometimes expressed in ‘behavioural difficulties’ or physical symptoms in children. The key to resolving symptoms such as AD(H)D, eating disorders, OCD, insomnia, bed wetting, social anxiety, violence between siblings and physical health issues can be found in the parents "trauma-biography".

Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT) demonstrates that when we as parents address our own trauma, our children benefit. As we take responsibility for our own feelings and start to become aware of our survival strategies, we can have healthier contact with our children, who then feel more supported to be themselves. This is equally true for grown up children. The important first step is to take the focus off our children as the ‘problem’ and begin to recognise their difficulties as symptoms of their hunger for emotional connection; a need which healthy parents are able to meet. When parents concentrate on the health of their own psyche, they can begin to perceive the innocence of their children as well as their own innocent child self. It then becomes possible to transform the victim-perpetrator-conflict dynamic into relationships based on win-win dynamics.
