Imagine that the solution to dealing with stress, trauma and loss is right in our hands?
THE EFFECTS Of Trauma
Flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts about a traumatic event, loss of interest in activities and life in general, feeling detached from others and emotionally numb, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, outburst of anger, difficulty concentrating and much more.
WHY IT SHOULD MATTER TO ALL OF US
Beyond the obvious humanitarian reasons for helping a fellow man, woman or child who is struggling, trauma, big or small, has a profound and often overlooked effect on our society and our world. We see cases of veterans with PTSD committing violence towards themselves or others. We see genocide survivors with a feeling of having no hope for the future, unable to take positive actions in their lives or take ahold of a hand that reaches out to them. We see what we perceive as “normal” people bursting at the seams because of previous traumatic events that keep their minds, bodies and spirits stuck. All these cases and more, over 7 million in the United States alone, tell us that there’s a component to healing, to helping someone get on their feet, to building a life and contributing to society, that we’ve been missing.
The Tapping Solution Foundation was formed shortly after the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy to provide trauma relief for families who had lost loved ones, teachers, first responders, and other survivors. The Foundation has provided ongoing vital support and training to community behavioral health practitioners to help heal individuals and support the community in their effort to move through this life altering experience.
