"In their book Trauma & Recovery, Judith Herman sets out a three-stage process to escape the weight of the Ten-Ton Trauma:
1. Establish Safety;
2. Retell or Remember Your Trauma Story; and
3. Restore Connection with your Community."
It can be exceptionally hard to tell our trauma story, and reconnect with our community, if we are trapped under the weight of shame.
Recovery starts when we recognize the power we have in our present life.
