"Failure to approach trauma related material gradually is likely to lead to intensification of posttraumatic symptomatology, leading to increased somatic, visual or behavioral re-experiences. Once the traumatic experiences have been located in time and place, a person can start making distinctions between current life stresses and past trauma, and decrease the impact of the trauma on present experience. Talking about the trauma is not enough: trauma survivors need to take some action that symbolizes triumph over helplessness and despair.” (van der Kolk, van der Hart, Burbridge, 1995.).
"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." ~Martin Luther King, Jr
