DVD, ~1 hour with 30–45 min discussion included
Donna starts the session believing she is working on childhood issues with the symptom of a “floating disconnected head” and no sensation in the right side of her face. We work slowly to integrate extreme dissociation step by step working the edges of high activation areas alternating with more resourced areas. We discover that the separation is due to surgical removal of a tumor in her neck under her jaw 8 years prior where her ear had been surgically detached and face pulled over half way and then reattached in the procedure. The surgeon cut nerves and she was told she would never have feeling on the right side of her face again. I explain the use of the SE model as we work. Remarkably, she regains total feeling in her face and ear by the end of the session. The results are intact at present 8 years later.
