Reply To: PSTEC for Complex PTSD
Since my last post, I have had some correspondence with other PSTEC users and one of the themes that has cropped up is how we get to understand where to take ourselves. For many it would seem to be hard to reach certain issues and in some cases they have described an 'approach avoid' block where things hit an internal barrier. Another phenomenon described is where people can become fearful of the consequences of change even when they 'know' it will be worthwhile.
I like to describe these feelings as part of an 'ecology' of recovery.
Here, then, are a few generic links that I find useful inasmuch that they can help with background knowledge and directional understanding, some are longer than others and I would recommend surfing over them and see if any find a resonance.
