In this video, which utilizes Dr. Dan Siegel’s Hand Model of the Brain, I would like you to replace the word “trauma” with the word “grief”.
By better understanding how the brain works, children and adolescents can begin to notice their response to the monster that is Grief. By using language to describe what is happening in their brains, they will feel less fearful, more in control, and safer. This will help them to move forward in their healing.
Reach out to me if this resonates with you.
