I find DARe and SE to be two of the most clear and powerful intervention strategies for healing of the whole person. My personal mantra is “How We Treat One Another Matters,” which emerges from my training and work with these two modalities, as well as contemporary neuroscience.. It is my belief that being intentional about how we treat one another becomes a spiritual practice that facilitates secure functioning in relationships.
Across our whole lives, we operate in relationships. Our views of our “self” and how we relate to others develop from how we have been treated in relationships. Our capacities to love, to learn, to become our best, all emerge optimally within healthy relationships. Likewise, wounds of heart and soul emerge from ways we have been treated and/or choices we have made which have hurt us, sometimes very deeply.
DARe addresses strategies for relational trauma resolution. SE strategies engage the nervous system to facilitate the work of the relational strategies. Together, they make a dynamic duo.
