The Answer is Dealing with Trauma
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of teaching at a “treatment program” for addicted women who live there with their children.
If All Trauma is Change, Is All Change Trauma?
I call these “the reciprocities.” The answer?—short, sweet, and simple. All trauma is change, but not all change is trauma. Let’s break it down a little.
Four Reasons to Think About More than Labels
I keep wondering when we’re going to abandon–maybe reject–the names of events as indicative of trauma. After all, what makes an event traumatic period.

Critical Impact. I found this book ripe with information as well as the material being very relatable, accessible, and person-centered. Elizabeth's knowledge and passion for this topic also invite the reader to re-examine myths and stigma that often get in the way of understanding the impact of trauma and of appreciating the resiliency of the human spirit.
from the moment I heard you speak, I knew that whatever you were teaching, I wanted to be there. More than that, I wanted to try it out... Five times this week I used the Changing Lens Strategy with different kiddos and it WORKED. So did the Brain Soothers! They worked! I am so glad it helped me out. I can never be more grateful than this! Thanks Elizabeth!
You have helped me become so much more: better health, more work, more me being ME! Before attending your session. I could not believe that there was light for me at the end of the tunnel. In my opinion, you change my entire life around with only one session and I wish to keep attending and be a part of every session in the future. I am so looking forward to it.
