To Heal Childhood Abuse and Neglect: Talk Less. Write More.

For a lot of people with Childhood PTSD, talking about traumatic memories can make symptoms worse — worse than if we were to do nothing at all. Yet talking about the past is the default mode of therapy for virtually everyone who is depressed, anxious or troubled about the past.

It’s true that talking can be crucial to emotional healing. But there is a lot of research that supports WRITING as a more effective way to communicate past trauma and relieve symptoms of Childhood PTSD. In this video I give some background on why I so strongly recommend daily writing as a means to heal the brain dysregulation that so often flows from a history of childhood abuse and neglect.
