The Primitive Brain
“Human behaviour is not always rational. In times of stress or crisis, deep-seated instincts well up from deep within and take over our awareness. Such events involve the ‘primitive brain’, which is based mainly in a series of parts known as the Limbic System.”
“The limbic system influences subconscious, instinctive behaviour, similar to animal responses that relate to survival and reproduction. In humans, many of these innate, early-evolved ‘primitive’ behaviours are modified by conscious, thoughtful considerations found in upper regions of the brain, as we take into account moral, social and cultural codes, and the results of our actions. However, primal urges sometimes prevail, and this is when the limbic system and associated structures take over. At other times they play lesser, but still complex and important roles in the expression of instincts, drives and emotions.”
ℹ🌿 ARE PTSD AND COMPLEX TRAUMA THE SAME? No They Are Not |
| BLUE KNOT FOUNDATION
".... information about complex trauma, childhood trauma, vicarious trauma and child abuse. We know that many different people want to know more about these areas. For this reason, we have made the information freely available to everyone.
If you are a survivor, family member, friend or partner, we hope you will find the information useful. While the pages talk about the nature of trauma and abuse, and how it can affect people, they also focus on the strengths and resilience of surviving, and the importance of connection and relationships. Importantly they discuss possibilities for recovery, and a ‘trauma-informed’ approach to care.
Some sections may be particularly interesting for professionals as they focus on research and treatment."

Anger can be one of the most challenging emotions that we work with.
Clients are sometimes afraid of their anger. Or, maybe they consider it inappropriate to even feel this way at all.
But anger can actually be an asset to our clients . . . as long as it’s channeled properly.
So how can we help clients express their anger more effectively? It begins by helping them understand how anger is triggered, and what happens in the body and brain.
We thought it would be helpful for you to have a way to illustrate this for your clients.
