Who You Were Before Trauma: The Healing Power of Imagination for Trauma Survivors
Who You Were Before Trauma: The Healing Power of Imagination for Trauma Survivors4 1 5 Scritto da: Luise Reddemann Letto da: Rosemary Benson
Reddemann incorporates imagination work at every stage of the three-phase treatment model supported by the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies–before, during, and after confrontation. First, the patient reimagines their past self, tapping into forgotten sources of strength. Then, they create a mental cache of personal, positive images for warding off flashbacks and negative thinking. Ultimately, they build an "internal counterweight" to their trauma–a new identity equipped with self-compassion.
Reddemann's approach avoids the counterproductive dynamic where the therapist becomes the patient's only source of comfort. This definitive resource for therapists and patients empowers trauma survivors to be the coauthors of their own recovery narrative.
