The scars of childhood trauma are most often invisible. While one may have physical scars too the deepest scars are the result of psychological trauma. Childhood trauma occurs through experiencing neglect, abandonment and/or verbal abuse leading to insecure attachment. The trauma experience may also be the result of witnessing the physical or verbal abuse of others. With a combination of narrative therapy and EMDR, also known as bi-lateral stimulation, one processes the trauma thereby reducing the level of disturbance and developing a happier, healthier life.
