Unpack the relationship between trauma and unwanted behaviors
Many of us don’t identify ourselves as addicts…but, count the number of episodes I watch after a rough week or watch me tear apart the house wondering if there is a stash of sugar somewhere, and you might notice some red flags.
Most of us have some kind of habit or behavior that we wish we didn’t. Typically this undesirable behavior is compulsive but yet, it helps us cope.
It’s notable that unwanted behaviors help us deal with some of the worst things in our lives, therefore, ironic that something potentially damaging helps us to survive. We can often draw a straight line from a trauma to a compulsive or unwanted behavior.
In the weekend training on Addictions, Purpose and Behavior, we’ll unpack the relationship between trauma and unwanted behaviors…and what to do about it.
We will not vilify addiction for those of us who live with compulsive or unwanted behaviors. These can be as commonplace as eating a bag of chips for supper or as extreme as an opioid addiction. We’ll relate around the media, internet, food (or restricting food), exercise, alcohol, prescription drugs, street drugs, and even meditation. Ultimately, we will uncover how these behaviors hint at our true purpose and next steps.
With many addictive crises running rampant through our lives – in our work and our homes – now more than ever is the time to learn targeted yoga techniques to work with triggers, options, and moving away from addiction.
Transitions like this aren’t easy but if you, someone you love, or your clients struggle with unwanted behaviors, the practical tools and new perspectives of this training will help you refine your perspectives and secure your next steps.
