Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's show will deal with TRAUMA. Jason Jurado defines the subject which we (in the brain-injured community) know about all too well. We have all developed stories which we tell ourselves related to our individual circumstances. These histories can be dealt with using Time-Line therapy, a part of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) specifically designed to deal with phobias, which are actually nothing more than negative emotions from the past. He explains that these events build on each other and can have a cumulative effect until the chain is broken.. The definitive way to stop these spiralling emotions is to delve into the primary trauma that actually began the cycle . This root trauma may or may not be the specific head injury which changed your life. In order to let these emotions go, it's necessary to learn to let this trauma, with all its complications and emotions, permanently go. He uses the metaphor - it's like road-rage; the car pulling in front of you is annoying, but in itself, it's not the direct cause of the immediate emotional outburst. Time-line therapy focuses on the vagus nerve and it's relationship to the nervous system. The body moves back and forth among particular sympathetic and para-sympathetic states. By responding appropriately to these waves of emotion, we can learn to use our past for benefit rather than inappropriate behavior.
