From Mad in the Netherlands: Integral and holistic recovery from PTSD and trauma goes (much) beyond just solving the triggers of the stress responses (effects) of Post-traumatic Stress Symptoms. Everyone comes into practice with his or her own situation, personality and life at the time of the start of a recovery process. There is no standard structure of PTSD. A recovery trajectory is a recovery process and it is not aimed at changing your personality. It is precisely about getting more in touch with your Essence (the pure consciousness) – with who you really are and have always been.
