WHAT IS TRAUMA FROM THE AIT PERSPECTIVE?
Trauma is any occurrence which, when it is happening, when we think back to it, or when it is triggered by some present event, evokes painful emotions and/or physical symptoms, sensations, or illnesses, gives rise to negative beliefs, desires, fantasies, compulsions, obsessions, addictions, dissociation, passivity, negativity, primitive defenses, depression, anxiety, delusions, hallucinations, and/or violence, blocks the development of maturity, love, and other life-enhancing qualities, destroys or limits spiritual connection and development, and fractures human wholeness.
This means that:
- Trauma is the underlying cause of all psychological and spiritual issues, and many physical issues as well
- We can best treat body, psyche, and spirit by finding and treating their underlying traumas.
