    Thank you Scot for this wonderful explanation. I have never understood it so simply and clearly.I realise that I have and am suffering from Developmental Trauma. I tried a lot of therapies only to feel so easily frustrated. I am only understanding much of it recently. Trauma work by Peter Levine, David Bercelli and Robert Scaer and Van der Kolk, have helped me tremendously to understand it and work onit. With Robert Scaer, I do believe that Trama can and does become a GIFT to us. Thank you very much. I may approach your website.

    This is the first PTSD resource that I have actually seen provide a lay explanation of the chemical basis of trauma in relation to survival instinct, and where this skill becomes an impediment to normal functioning. I highly recommend

    • psmcbrayer

      One of the keys to recovery from PTSD must also be to REMOVE a person to a SAFE ENVIRONMENT...stop all the triggers long enough, the symptoms can be managed or greatly diminished. I think we are seeing more and more cases of PTSD in military members due to REPEAT DEPLOYMENTS, even if voluntary...getting hooked on high pressure, low sleep, urgent timeline environments...we call it high operations tempo. THIS is why we should have activated the DRAFT system...to reduce this kind of stress. It also would have likely improved the political will to resolve these military operations more quickly, as a greater cross-section of the US would "have skin in the game". This is the longest military engagement in US History and the first time we have NOT instituted a draft for any extended engagement or declared war! Folks, PTSD does not have to prevent people from being productive, employable or stable forever...PTSD is a diagnosis that sticks and conjures images that are extreme. It will always be there, but, we can retrain our emotions and automatic responses to live relatively normal lives. Some people might never know it was at one time an issue for someone. It is time to put the images of someone "going postal", to bed!

    this is all so true. Your mind and body will keep triggering and retriggering those responses...then they become learned responses. I know them all very well.

    Have you heard of Vipassana meditation? Even without all the details, the technique you describe sounds remarkably like what I learned at the meditation retreat that I attended. I wonder because I was speaking with my boss, who is a post-doc in neuroscience and genetics, about the techniques I learned there, and she said it was very similar to a neurological technique called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I'm glad these sorts of things are coming to the forefront. Thanks for the video :)

    Read Richard Schwartz "internal Family systems" to get the accurate model of the mind and the method of treatment. Or type Peter Gerlach in MNsoft and watch his 180 plus videos detailing the correct treatment.

    Although this is well meaning it is fundamentally flawed. The mind of every human being is composed of sub personalities. AAT can not fix Trauma, because all "mental health Issues" are to do with conflict between sub personalities and resolving the conflict is the way to overcome trauma. Like old therapies, AAT deals with the symptoms of trauma, not the underlying cause which is always conflict between sub personalities.

    Excellent Presentation. Really well done. The voice is good and well-paced with nice relaxed tone, the graphics are good. The animations do add something. The information is very good. I enjoyed this and found it interesting and helpful. I will certainly think about purchasing the book too.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the information. You may be surprised to learn how simple it can be to reprogram your Nervous System to stop reacting in old, patterned ways re: learned helplessness. The key is not found in intellectualizing your past, but in training your brain to react differently now. To achieve this, you simply need to learn a method of communication that takes advantage of your brain's ability to change, called neuroplasticity.

    Thank you so much for this video! But how to overcome Learned Helplessness? My story is that as a newborn I was subjected to physically painful experiences due to illness and treatment, & separation from my mother. Since then to this day I still often feel very anxious and helpless in many social situations. I find it hard to state my demands or ask for sth. I'm especially sensitive to anger of others. I feel very fearful and cannot defend myself, and become totally helpless in these situations.
