Solutions for Trauma (from

This is an excerpt taken directly from the JOY STARTS HERE project from Life Model Works.   I wanted to share it because it makes such great sense that the solution to painful traumas should match the way traumas work. Check this out and see if it might be something you would like it implement in your life, your church or your counseling center:


• Trauma and addictions change our identities; therefore the solution must also change identities.
•Trauma self-propagates; therefore the solution must self-propagate.
•Trauma blocks the development of maturity and character; therefore the solution must restore maturity and Godly character.
• Trauma encourages people to reject others, therefore the solution must create belonging.
• Trauma and addictions spread without needing education; although the solution should be based on the best science, it should not require a Western education or medical model.
•Violence and terrorism traumatize whole groups at once; therefore the solution must heal whole groups at once.
•All human cultures, races and ethnicities have the same nervous systems and the same spiritual needs. A solution based on solid neurology and Biblical spirituality would be a solution as universal as the causes for trauma.
•The recovery model must be high-tech design with a low-tech implementation.
•Abuse usually spreads through unhealthy relationships. The 19 relational brain skills, taught through THRIVE materials in bonded relationships, train and encourage people towards joyful relating.
•The identities formed by the solution must match God’s design for us.

About Barbara Moon

I am an ordinary person who walks with an extraordinary God. I love to share what He has done in my life. I love to help parents with their kid questions. I love to teach little ones to swim. I love to study and learn new things and for the last ten years I have been focusing on how the brain works in connection with joyful relationships, how that affects development, maturity and trauma recovery. When not writing, my days are full of family, (especially grandchildren), mentoring, counseling, sewing, and reading.
