I am in the process of writing up various trauma release techniques
  that I have found helpful.
Many traumatised survivors have found one of these techniques useful.
   whilst others report the same technique of little assistance
   so I have listed a range of techniques
These include:  
  • tapping   or  EFT
  • EDMR
  •  
  •         "The Revolutionary trauma Release Process""    David Berceli
  •       I often shake my hands or feet to release trauma
  •            during physiotherapy or remedial massage.
  • remedial massage  etc.
  • music therapy

Having done many Google searches and learnt from other survivors

     I now need to go back and  through my hundreds of bookmarks

      and install the links.

Peter Levine is one author

https://traumahealing.org/

       He wrote many books  including

Walking the Tiger

Healing Trauma

   At one point

I had  pain in my pelvic floor 

when bending down

I knew it was trauma from csa

   I had physiotherapy

and began my now three year journey 

and have experienced much release

One helpful book is

""Ä headache in the pelvis""   David Wise

 

trauma informed

reflexology

remedial massage

kensiology

bio feedback

 

are some trauma

releasing therapies.

 


 

 

Introduction -

               One night I was discussing issues of recovery from the trauma of sexual abuse in childhood

when it occurred to me

  If one is traumatised then one needs to be detraumatised.

      These days it's referred to as trauma release.

                   Whilst I originally wrote this site as an adult survivor of child sexual abuse,

        it is hoped that these pages contain transferrable concepts useful for survivors of other forms of trauma.

  • release for returned soldiers from the trauma of war
  • release from the trauma of a car collision
  • release from the trauma of a workplace accident
  • release from domestic violance
  • release from emotional abuse
  • release from any traumatic event.

                          

               It is estimated that between 1 in 6  men and 25% of woman  have been sexually abused before the age of 16.

and yet recovery from csa (Child Sexual Abuse) is a very under resourced

          and often poorly understood.

the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to child sexual abuse

in Australia ( due to complete it's work this year)

     Public Hearings / Case Studies are on the site

           It is estimated that 3% of men are sexually assaulted or abused during adult years (asa)

              and yet asa recovery is even more under resourced

and the prevelance of msa ( the sexual abuse of males)  under recognised.

             Most families, schools, friends, workplaces, community organisations and Churches

may have Child Protection Policies but very few understand sexual trauma

and  have little idea how to respond, how to care for a survivor of csa in recovery,

 Workplaces in Australia are supposed to be free from sexual abuse or sexual harassment

      but  disclosure is often met with a lack of resolve or not knowing what to do.

      apart from expensive private counsellors there is a lack of resources for asa survivors.

         this needs to be addressed.

          As one of the major impacts of csa and asa is trauma and the need to both correctly respond to a survivor in trauma, and for survivors to understand trauma - how it protects, how it can be permantely active

until de activated. I decided to name the site detraumatisation.

       This homepage is a gateway site to resources.

AS I have been talking to other men I found that not only csa,

but grief can hold us "back there" in unresolved events

and or the trauma of it.

   

 

Trauma  and Grief.

               I have found over and over again.
 talking to men that when I tell my story or surviving csa (Child Sexual Abuse)
that the response it is often a disclosure of grief.
 Grief at the catestrophic loss of a: father or mother, brother or sister or wife.

 and so I began to ask - what is the common factor in  csa and grief ?

What holds some survivors "back there?"

  • Trauma - hence the site name of detraumatisation.
  • Lack of support at the time or since
  • parental and community response inadequate
  • grief and a sence of loss
  • abondonment
  • not being understood
  • a neeed to be comforted
  •  

Fatherlessness or In effect Fatherlessness.
     
  Two World Wars in the first half of the twentieth centurary left many widows and fatherless sons. Some lost uncles,grandfathers or brothers in the wars.
 Some found their fathers returned home, but in trauma.
They were there but not there. They too lost mates, fathers, brothers,
uncles or  sons.
     In the late twentieth centuary divorces increased, there were single parent families - sons without fathers.
     Then thee are sons who biologicaly have a father who is alive,
but not there for his son.

There are fathers who abuse their sons or are complicit in others abusing their sons. These men are in effect fatherless.
as are sons who are criticised, ridiculed or unprotected by their fathers. They are often in various stags of trauma,
including the family secret of undisclosed csa.

In this context I understand why Jesus once said to follow Him
"you have to hate your father, mother .."
some sons will be controlled, held back, sabotaged
so long as there is a link with their abusive or controlling parents.
Only Jesus Christ can be the Lord of true Sons.
Godly father release and empower our sons.

Detraumatisation for the military
surviving the traumas of war.

 

It is now 2017 and a lot has happened since first writing my sites.

I have learnt a lot talking with other survivors with view very different to mine.
