In Aftershocks of Stress, Crisis and Trauma, Dr. Hartley provides the reader with two distinctive patterns that assist in understanding post-traumatic stress and what to do after it has occurred. One pattern is related to the loss of personal power as a result of trauma, and the other one focuses on taking power back. She assists the reader to identify the various ways trauma occurred, and then illustrates the negative behaviors people adopt to escape from the emotional and physical overwhelm of the trauma. Although these Zone Out and Strike Out behaviors can give some momentary sense of relief, unfortunately over time the use of them can actually become addictive and dis-empowering. The different stages of identifying and releasing the emotional/physical symptoms are presented, as well as the concept of the subconscious decisions that are made in the midst of traumatic events. Personal stories of dramatic changes in people's lives illustrate the use of various therapeutic modalities to quickly release the symptoms and empower the individual. In this book, you will discover the parallels to the traumas that you have experienced, and realize that you too can let go of the past and take your power back.
