Individual Demos on Victim/Perpetrator Dynamics
From the DARe Series on Adult Attachment (2012) DEMO: Exploring “Being Big” in the body as a positive expression of expansiveness of being.
Shannon shares her experience of feeling for the first time at ease with “being big” and enjoying this grounding, powerful yet calm reality, in contrast with her past history of feeling “small” and contracted.
Diane emphasizes the need to evoke and complete the fight response while also evoking secure attachment: both systems need to be evoked, felt, experienced and healed – and the therapist must work with both systems, back and forth, sometimes simultaneously.
Shannon’s healing and integration is supported by her newly acquired skills for interactive regulation and working with explicit memory.
