Becoming Safely Embodied: A Guide to Organize Your Mind, Body and Heart to Feel Secure in the World (Paperback)
Becoming Safely Embodied is a step-by-step process that helps clients between therapy sessions to live a more satisfying life.
'Becoming Safely Embodied' is a skill-building model that helps those who have experienced trauma develop the capacities they need to 'be with' themselves. Within Becoming Safely Embodied, the skills are taught experientially, step-by-step, and practiced until it becomes possible to use them during normal daily life. Nine easy-to-learn skills are presented that are readily incorporated into self-study, group format or individual therapy. These skills can build a foundation to be in one's own skin, sort out confusing emotions and sensations, while staying present with oneself and others. When people are "safely embodied" they no longer live with the past constantly invading the present moment, instead living in the present, consolidating new, more nourishing memories.
