Energy, Trauma, and Healing Course
3 Important Question for You...
Did you know that studies have shown people who have been psychologically traumatized have higher rates of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes?
Did you know that what are called “little ‘t’ traumas” can have devastating effects on someone’s entire life? It’s not just the “big ‘T’ traumas” that scar people. A childhood event like a scary first day at a new school can be a “little ‘t’ trauma.” It’s not in the same category of event as a car crash or sexual abuse. Yet research shows that “little ‘t’ traumas” can leave a profound psychological impact.
Are you aware that psychological trauma can cause structural changes to the brain — enlarging circuits of stress, negativity, suffering, and happiness?
Psychological trauma can take a terrible toll on our physical and mental health. Studies show that people who’ve been traumatized have higher rates of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Trauma even changes the structure of your brain, enlarging the circuits of stress, negativity, suffering and unhappiness. Use these circuits more, and they get bigger and faster over time.

How a Deadly Auto Accident and Devastating Childhood Molestation Lead to the Most Profound Breakthrough of Her Life…
“Amanda, a 19-year-old university student, was referred to me because of PTSD after an automobile accident in 1999. The driver in the other car crossed over the medial strip and struck her vehicle head on, killing both of his passengers and himself. Amanda was pinned under the dashboard for several hours while a rescue team struggled to cut her out of the crushed car.
I saw her a year after the accident. She was having frequent nightmares, flashbacks, panic, anxiety, and guilt feelings. She was also abusing alcohol.
After four treatment sessions [using leading-edge techniques], she was able to recall the event vividly without distress.
Later in therapy, she reported that a relative molested her from age 5 to 12. Similar treatment was applied… Follow-up several months later revealed ongoing relief on all aspects treated.”
The Difference Between Traumatized People and “Normal” People
Some people may be obviously traumatized, such as those who have survived big “T” traumas like natural disasters, war, or personal tragedies. Yet due to small “t” traumas, many of us who had “normal” lives or childhoods can wind up with some of the symptoms of PTSD such as hypervigilance, insomnia, and intrusive negative thoughts.
Trauma can lie just below the surface of a normal life, producing anxiety, depression, and physical symptoms. The Energy, Trauma and Healing course will educate you in the:
- Telltale symptoms of trauma
- Psychological coping mechanisms of traumatized individuals
- Many ways in which trauma compromises the function of the physical body
- Subtle signs of trauma lurking just below the surface of awareness
- Adverse changes in the brain and nervous system that follow trauma
- Ways that trauma can show up in the lives of people who seem fine
- Way the brain processes traumatic memories differently
- Research showing that PTSD symptoms can be successfully treated
- Remarkable new energy therapies now being used for PTSD
- Three “Gentle Techniques” that don’t require the painful recall of past events
- Signs by which you know that healing has taken place
- Ways in which people can integrate even tragic events into a healing story
How a childhood “little ‘t’ trauma” led to uncontrollable anger …
“On a Zoom group call, ‘Shelli’ said she was bitterly angry at her noisy neighbors. Lately they’d been doing construction work, going on till after 10pm some nights. Her anger was 10 out of 10. “I haven’t had a good night’s sleep for months,” she said, “I’m so mad I can’t talk to them.” Shelli looked haggard, with lines of stress drawn on her face.
I had her tune into her body and feel her physical sensations. She felt a sharp red stabbing sensation in her throat. I asked her for her earliest memory of the sensation.
‘I was 6, and my mom didn’t pick me up from school. I waited for an hour. I became more and more terrified. Eventually I panicked and ran all the way home.’
Most of the annoyances we react to as adults have physical echoes of early childhood experiences. For Shelli, her mom not picking her up was a little ‘t’ trauma. But she was still reacting to it 40 years later.
We quickly resolved the childhood trauma, even using proven fast-acting techniques. Her face softened as the lines of tension vanished. Shelli then said, “Gosh, I was so strong when I was 6 then I could run all the way home! And the feeling in my throat is gone. Tomorrow I’m going to have a clear but polite talk with the neighbors.”
My guess is that you’re here because you’ve been traumatized or you have a loved one with PTSD. Maybe you’re a coach or therapist seeking effective new methods to offer your clients. What you’ll find in this course is a state-of-the-art training in the roots of — and solutions to — psychological trauma.
I’ve had a passion for seeing people heal my whole life long. From my earliest childhood, in a family and culture in which violence and abuse was normal, I’ve sought a way out.
This has motivated me to seek effective treatments for people who are suffering, like Shelli in the story above, and the veteran’s wife in the story below. I’ve been the lead investigator in dozens of clinical trials, and over the years I’ve had the joy of watching thousands of people shed the burdens of PTSD, depression and anxiety.
Along with a group of wonderful volunteers, I started the Veterans Stress Project in 2007. Each year we treat thousands of veterans with PTSD — free of charge.
I’ve also testified before US congressional committees, including the Veterans Affairs Committee and the Homeland Security Committee, about the new therapies that treat PTSD successfully. This led to the designation of these methods by the Veterans Administration in 2017 as a “generally safe therapy.”
My distinguished colleagues and I have designed the Energy, Trauma and Healing course to educate you about PTSD. It’s important that you know the difference between someone who’s traumatized, and someone who’s just upset.
It’s also vital that you understand that PTSD is a physical condition, not just a psychological one. Untreated, it leads to a heavy burden of disease. But once you heal the mind, the body naturally follows along.
The course is also designed to give you hope. Inside you’ll read the stories of many people who recovered completely after using these breakthrough methods. You’ll discover the remarkable new field of Energy Psychology. These therapies lead to healing for most PTSD sufferers. In plain English, I’ll explain the meaning of the science that shows that over 80% of people heal, enjoying lifetime freedom from their debilitating symptoms.
The bottom line is that most PTSD is curable. I invite you to explore the many resources in this great home-study course. You’ll discover that whether you’re seeking relief for a loved one, or whether you want to release your own trauma, healing can be surprisingly easy and quick.

While psychological trauma is classified as a mental health disorder, it can affect the body in devastating ways. This course traces the physiological effects of PTSD in the body’s many systems: the brain, the autonomic nervous system, the endocrine system, and the many organs they control. It weaves together the most current research from many different scientific fields, making them clear and understandable. It draws on many academic specialties to give you an up-to-date picture of the mental and physical effects of PTSD. These include:
- Developmental Psychology
- Evolutionary Biology
- Polyvagal theory
- Energy Psychology
- Memory Reconsolidation
The Energy, Trauma and Healing course shows how when we are traumatized, especially at an early age, changes occur deep in the brain. These are reinforced by neural plasticity, our brain’s ability to rapidly add new synaptic connections. Over time, these intensify the symptoms of PTSD, often leading to disabling personal limitations.
The course teaches you about the exciting new field of memory reconsolidation. This shows that under very specific conditions, fear-based memories may be revised by the brain. The new therapies emerging in the field of Energy Psychology are able to quickly neutralize traumatic emotions.
Clinical trials show that these techniques rehabilitate over 80% of PTSD sufferers. In the Energy, Trauma and Healing course, we’ll cover the physical changes that occur when we use these advanced methods. Here’s another example of the deep and lasting healing that occurs when they’re applied.
If you’re a medical or mental health professional, a coach or a teacher, and you’re taking this course to expand your knowledge of these advanced methods, here are the learning objectives of the Energy, Trauma and Healing course.
