WHAT IS RELATIONAL TRAUMA?
Some trauma – like physical and sexual abuse – is blatant and easily recognizable. Other trauma is less obvious, even to the one who suffered through it. It can look like subtle manipulation, unintentional neglect, or a “lack of” – a lack of affection, comfort, attention, or appropriate limits.
The common theme of all trauma is the damage it does to our mental, physical or emotional health – and the impact it has on our ability to love ourselves and others.

WHAT IF I’M UNCOMFORTABLE TALKING IN FRONT OF OTHER PEOPLE?
Then you are just like most of us! Though this is a common concern leading up to the intensive, we find participants report it to be a lot less scary (and a whole lot more comfortable) than they expected, once they’ve experienced it for themselves. The experiential structure of the intensive is a critical component of the work you’ll do, but we intentionally keep the groups small to help you acclimate. We’ll also start Day 1 getting to know each other and we’ll go by first-names only to protect your anonymity.
I HAVE LIVED WITH THIS TRAUMA FOR YEARS. HOW WILL THIS INTENSIVE HELP ME IN JUST 3 DAYS?
Facilitated by one of our most experienced therapists, this intensive has been described by former participants as “transformational”, “life changing”, and “the equivalent of months, maybe years of therapy received in three powerful days.” It’s designed to specifically help you connect the dots and discover what’s holding you back and preventing you from enjoying loving, fulfilling, and healthy relationships today.
