4-day trauma programme
Post induction therapy has been designed to address the underlying issues surrounding the symptomatic disease of addictive processes. Developed by Pia Mellody, this three-day intensive programme addresses developmental immaturity that directly links to the need to engage in substance and behavioural addictions, including eating disorders.
The concept addresses childhood trauma (anything less than nurturing) which impacts on day-to-day adult life. We believe that this occurs on a spectrum from abandonment and neglect to enmeshment, and all about family systems.
These relational issues cause difficult and unbearable feelings of shame, pain, sadness, and guilt, which can cause challenging behaviours.
