Well, this was kind of surprising. A couple of weeks ago I sent a survey out to my blog followers and people who signed up for first access to my upcoming course that’s all about healing the impact of Childhood PTSD on romantic relationships. I wanted to a reality check on topics I planned to cover, and the responses surprised me!
Twenty-nine people responded — hardly a representative sample, but people gave many interesting, thoughtful, generous answers. Their contributions were SO helpful for preparing to tape my course, especially when it comes to choosing how deeply I’ll go into certain topics.
The big question was about which topics are most important. People could check as many as they liked, and here’s what they said:
Then I asked what elements of the course would be most valuable. It turns out a lot of people are uncomfortable with the idea of group coaching, because there is a loss of privacy.
- 100% of the respondents believe they had Childhood PTSD.
- 97% of them believe Childhood PTSD affected their relationships.
- 7% are professionals in the field of trauma.
- 94% are female.
- 94% are heterosexual.
- Half live in the US, 29% in the UK, and 21% in Canada, Australia, Germany or Denmark.
- Age ranged from 27 to 78, with an average age of 49.
So I’m really busy now, planning for open registration at the end of December (new year’s resolutions, anyone?). I’m still really receptive to your feedback, so please feel free to comment or send me an e-mail with your thoughts about making this the best possible course on romantic relationships for people with Childhood PTSD.
Oh, and I really, really need a better title for the course! Your suggestions are most welcome!
If you want to add your e-mail address to the early-access list for the relationships course, you can do that here.
If you’d like to learn more about first course, Healing Childhood PTSD, (which gives a great foundation that will help you in the relationships course) I recommend you check it out.
