In which Zabet enjoys Cary Tennis' advice columns much too much.

I've removed anything that pertains to the specific question asked and left the things that sort of apply in general to getting over past trauma.

"In recovering from such a powerful early experience, we find that education and intellectual understanding are often not enough. They cannot undo traumatic conditioning. What is required is the emotional relearning that takes place in psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioral therapy, 12-step programs, somatic therapy, neuro-linguistic programming and the like.

We may struggle for years to cure such traumas by thinking. Meanwhile we live like two separate beings, one responding with animal verve to all the threats and lures that swarm about our streets and doorways, the other supposedly "higher" being bemused by its own inexplicable responses to stimuli....

The astounding fact remains that we cannot think our way out of such conditioning; we must enter the realm of the traumatized animal.... This can be brutally emotional...[i]t can also be enlightening in both connotations: bringing light and relieving weight."
