Personal Reactions when working with Trauma Clients

Do you notice that you have strong feelings when working with clients? Watch this powerful video.  Dr. Robert Muller author of “Trauma and the Avoidant Client” addresses the issue of therapist triggering response when working with clients.  He pinpoints how powerfully we as helpers can get reactive and avoid the trauma content because of our own deep feelings of discomfort.  He explains how important it is to give the message to the client that this is the place to talk about their trauma and they do not need to silence this history in the therapy session, but rather use this as a time to work through and make sense of their history.
