“Practical Tools For The Healing Journey – Developing Self-Care, Nurture, Compassion and Cooperation”
Saturday, October 21, 2017, 4:15-5:15 p.m.
San Juan Ballroom 3
Description: The healing journey through recovery can be traumatic in it’s own right as survivors walk through the process of recovering memories of abuse and trauma. The added diagnosis of DID can feel overwhelming, isolating and even shameful as survivors wonder how they will cope with the pain and grief of their history and still manage present-day life, work, family, outside relationships and the myriad of triggers that they encounter. Through her own story, Kate will share practical tools that have helped her to navigate this healing journey, both in managing the trauma memories that come up and how to live and move toward integration and /or cooperation including ways to grow in greater self awareness, developing a nurturing and compassionate heart toward our inner world and differentiating between trying to “control” and suppress what’s going on inside versus creating an environment of safety, community and cooperation.
- Define the difference between controlling/suppressing and creating environment of safety, community and cooperation.

- Describe at least 3 practical tools that can aide in moving toward integration and general healing.
