Helping the Inner Child Process GriefSep 03, 2022
it happened what the facts are what role it really played in this bad situation and many times they did not play a significant role this video is designed to accompany the healing of the
childcognitive behavioral therapy strategies to address trauma and abandonment so another video that is on my youtube channel has gotten 1.5 million views at this point but i had a few requests to expand a bit more on how to help people get through or work through that grieving
processstrategies to connect and help the
childto grieve will depend on the age the child was when they were hurt, you're going to use different strategies to comfort a four or six year old than a 14 or 16 year old, but they're both children, we don't want to think of the inner child as just something that happened before adolescence, 18 years of age or younger, is still considered a child.
In most cases, it will be important to examine the concrete. Limited or limited explanations of what is happening so help the inner child see other possible reasons why this might have happened. We may need to help them examine overly personalized beliefs about the situation. What are the facts and how much control did you really have? said children often think they have much more control over situations and cause much more than they actually do, so we need to help them change that belief and acknowledge that it wasn't their fault and help them examine dichotomous beliefs about themselves and the situation if they look back and their caretaker walked out on the family they think its my fault for whatever I did and it means I'm a bad person that schema was packed into a neat little internalized package so that we need to help people explore as adults if that belief, if that schema is really accurate, will also be important to explore and identify the losses with the child.
With the adult, as well as the inner child as an adult, I can say that I still have these things from my past that are open wounds, okay, we have to address them, but there are also some things that, as an adult, I may not even is paying. attention because as an adult I see it as inconsequential but to the inner child it is still very important so have the adult and inner child identify the losses including things like loss of sense of security, trust in others, hope, dreams childhood pets, people or even important events the child missed, maybe he couldn't go to prom because he was in quarantine, so ask both the adult and the inner child, why is he angry, what is he sad by healing childhood wounds will help the person release energy in the present, develop healthier relationships with themselves and others, and feel empowered to start moving towards a rich and meaningful life
