Trauma is an emotional wound caused by extremely painful or life threatening events that damage a person socially, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and physically and preventing him/her from achieving his/her God given potential.”  

The primary question for this session was “HOW DO WE HEAL FROM TRAUMA?”

In trying to help participants answer this question, a review of the previous sessions was done. Learning from David’s story and King Saul in the Bible 1 Samuel Chapter 16-24. David went through serious trauma under Saul but David chose not to revenge despite all opportunities that came by during his service

Trauma and the human brain. Participants were exposed to a very simple illustration of how the human brain operates, the thinking brain (makes plans and decisions,) the feeling brain (center of human emotion fear, joy, anger etc) and the survival brain (controls reactions like fights)

Meaning making: Individuals or groups of traumatized persons construct and assign meaning to what has happened, the narrative can either be positive or negative, pushing them forward or keeping them stuck.
