Left untreated, childhood trauma can reverberate through adult relationships and make it difficult for your client to get close to other people.
But Terry Real, MSW, LICSW has a way of thinking about the psyche that can help clients understand the aftereffects of trauma . . .
. . . and help practitioners retarget their interventions with clients who are struggling in their relationships.
We’ve created an infographic to lay out his 3-part model for you below. Have a look.

Now according to Terry, while most trauma interventions focus on the wounded child, it’s the adaptive child that we need to address to help a client move forward.
So tomorrow, we’ll get into how to work with a client’s adaptive child in the final session of the Advanced Master Program on the Treatment of Trauma.
We’ll also look at what to do when one of the specific trauma responses we’ve covered over the last four weeks is hurting your client’s relationships. (That’s the freeze response, dissociation, collapse/submit, please and appease, and shame.)
