|Life After Trauma
The Birth Your Life® Life
After Trauma program is designed
to help you reclaim your life, enthusiasm, joy and trust after
loss or betrayal or injury or illness.
Trauma comes in many forms. And coping is as individual as you are.

can carry the anxiety, fears, expectation of mistreatment and distrust
that their ancestors held. Descendants of those who have experienced
abuse, poverty and neglect can live in the residual unfinished trauma
of those before them.

a combination of three approaches
