The Value of Person-Centered Work
The rewards of doing person-centered work in the context of Traumatic Incident Reduction and related techniques come from:
- Being fully heard and understood, without criticism or judgment
- Having enough time to fully resolve something within one session
- Knowing that you have had the insights you needed to feel complete with what you are addressing
We can indeed get into a stuck place, mentally or emotionally, where we cannot seem to work our own way out of it. Coming to the end of something that has distressed you, knowing that it has no power to bother you any more, gives a sense of triumph and mastery.
“The reason for evil in the world is that people are not able to tell their stories.”
– C.G. Jung in Freud Letters, Vol 2.
You are the expert on your own experience. Your Traumatic Incident Reduction practitioner is there to make a safe space for you to work and to use structured techniques to facilitate your systematically looking at issues of interest to you. You will continue to work together until you reach and end point – a point of relief and resolution – on the specific area you are looking at that day. A complex issue may need several sessions to address the several aspects of it, each to its own end point.
Traumatic Incident Reduction and related techniques provide the means to get to the roots of issues that trouble you. Resolution of past painful events is indeed possible. Experience these results for yourself and see how much brighter life can be.
