It is essential to work with the whole mind/body connection in therapy, and in particular when working with trauma. In trauma, the mind/ body connections can become fragmented and emotionally very unstable. The body has been found to unconsciously store the implicit memories of the event (emotions ( e.g. terror), sensations (e.g. pain), movements (e.g. fight, flight, freeze responses)). These can become unconsciously recorded and locked into the bodies’ nervous system and get triggered, often unexpectedly and inexplicably, causing uncontrolled hyper-arousal, re-experiencing and avoidance episodes that can be devastating. The goal of body psychotherapy, is to help the client work with and make sense of these responses, so that the client can integrate the whole experience into a coherent and stable memory.
