Verbal First Aid – What to Say When Every Second Counts and How to Prevent PTSD
Judith Simon Prager:
Verbal First Aid What to Say When Every Second Counts and How to Prevent PTSD
Medical Hypnosis Coaching with Melissa Roth and Roger Moore
“Verbal First Aid™ uses words to set a course for healing from fear and pain.” When people are in fear, pain, or crisis, they often go into fight/flight/freeze, slipping into an altered state of consciousness in which what is said to them can be received by the mind/body as a hypnotic command. At such time, words can harm and words can heal. Frightening words can send chemicals such as adrenalin and cortisol which impede healing, whereas words that create calm can help set a course for the body’s recovery. Moreover, the right words can affect the future by turning a potential trauma into a memory of rescue. You’ll learn the Verbal First Aid protocol for providing words that can calm, promote healing, relieve pain, and even save lives.
