Sum of Self

There is a new paradigm starting to approach primary health care. A trauma informed practice should be at the heart of any client/patient communication. More and more it is being revealed that mental and physical wellbeing is not just the sum of self; we are not islands. It is the accumulation of every interaction both loving and traumatising that we have experienced so far. So whatever your modality is, if you are working with humans, the entire presence of the person's lived experience is right there in the room with you. All of a sudden that might just be a much bigger proposition.
