Transcending Trauma by
Dr. Diane Shelton
The journey of healing after a traumatic experience can be long, take twists and turns, and can leave you feeling alone in the process. This session has been created with the very words and sentiments of others who have been on the same journey and is a gift to â€˜pay it forwardâ€™ for yours.
When something traumatic happens in life, it can feel like everything needs to be redefined, like nothing is familiar and you have no control in life. While you might not have had any control over the event, you CAN control how you respond and that is a key factor in the journey to transcend the experience. Hope is essential in the process, which can also be hard to grasp in this situation. The journey can be long, take unexpected turns and feel like you’re all alone, too. But you aren’t. You have this session, which is built on the words and experiences of others who have transcended trauma, who bring you a ‘virtual’ personal partner in each viewing to cheer you on and support you every step of the way. Healing your mind is a contribution to a healthier world, and that world has just paid it forward to help you.
Dr. Diane Shelton, is a clinical psychologist licensed in several states in the US. Her 20 years of experience has spanned an array of settings: community mental health centers, prisons and jails, colleges and universities, inpatient treatment centers, group and individual private practices. This continuum of settings, where humans are at their best and their worst, has been very informative and influential in Diane’s life and she is grateful for every opportunity. In addition to Diane’s clinical work, she has also been an educator, trainer and consultant to groups and organizations, and she has had the privilege to mentor future generations of healers. Diane’s philosophy is basic. If each of us takes responsibility to work on handling whatever ‘stuff’ we might have (impatience, defensiveness, anxiety, poor communication skills, whatever it might be), not only will that improve that individual, but the people around him or her, and we all benefit from that. Diane believes that Positive Prime is an avenue by which we can accomplish this; it is a powerful tool and she is excited to see the impact it will have.
