DVD, ~1 hour with 30 – 45 min discussion included

Ann renegotiates the experience of a perpetrator attacking her while she slept. In the session, she successfully defends herself through completing defensive orienting responses and returns to a sense of empowerment and safety. This is a useful session to explore Victim – Perpetrator dynamics, inserting a competent protective ally, moving from the freeze response to mobility evoking defensive orienting responses and a significant discharge of high activation.
