• Loving Someone with PTSD

    banner image

    When one person suffers, the whole family suffers…

    Yet no one prepares us for how to respond to trauma. 

    Family and friends often report:

    •  feeling disconnected from the loved one and getting the sense that nothing they say or do is right,
    • being unsure of how to support the survivor, including whether it’s okay to talk about what happened,
    • increased conflict at home and struggling to resolve it,
    • missing how life used to be before the trauma,
    • struggling to understand how to set boundaries or get their own needs met without upsetting or triggering the other person.

    You don’t have to figure it out on your own. We can help!

    After this workshop you will:

    • understand the impact of trauma on people and families

    • learn to communicate effectively with your loved one

    • feel more comfortable responding to trauma related disclosures

    • develop a self-care plan to prevent and respond to vicarious trauma

    • have answers to your questions about PTSD/CPTSD and how to support your loved one

    When family gets involved in a survivor’s healing journey, not only does the family benefit, the survivor does too

    Contact us to learn how we might be able to help.
