This workshop will present a Faith-Based Model For working with Trauma and Victims of Early Childhood Sexual Abuse, Rape, Domestic Violence, and deep Hurt. Healing Emotional Affective Responses to Trauma (HEART) is partially based on the work of David Seamands (1985) in his book Healing of the Memories. This model expands to include Gestalt Interventions (Jones and Butman, 1991) and Family Systems Theory (Ibid). At the core of many Healing Models from a Spiritual perspective is the concept of Forgiveness (Worthington, 1998) however the thrust is often forgiveness of others. This model has at its core a methodology of self-forgiveness (Bass and Davis,1988) and a way to resolve resentments toward a Higher Power or God in order to receive Healing. A comprehensive discussion of the trauma Continuum as posited originally by Braun (1988), and expanded by others (Ross,1989; Krakauer, 2001) and how this model can be effective with Dissociative Disorders, PTSD, Borderline Personality. Case Histories will be discussed to emphasize aspects of the model. The Bible, Koran, and various Eastern writings say that the Kingdom of God lies within the heart. It is this aspect of HEART that will be explored.
