Summary

Summary

Heal psychological wounds on your own

Move on from the emotional trauma of your past: Contrary to what many people believe, we can recover from emotional trauma relatively quickly and completely on our own, without thousands of dollars spent on therapists. Whether it’s extreme trauma such as sexual abuse or the horrors of war, or less dramatic but, psychologically speaking, just as serious wounds involving shame and guilt, we don’t need to spend years in intensive therapy to recover. Keep Pain in the Past explains a process that allows you to do most, if not all, of the recovery on your own.

Train yourself in psychological self-healing: While most people know what they can do on their own to treat physical ills―like using ice on a muscle sprain―they don’t realize that they can apply certain psychological principles to treat anxiety, depression, and many other conditions. Keep Pain in the Past will teach you the critical twenty-first century skill of treating psychological wounds on your own.

Treat yourself and heal old wounds: As much as people may suspect that some trauma from their past is affecting them negatively, they struggle to do anything about it. They take refuge in denial, avoidance, or addictions rather than grapple with that long-ago emotional pain―because honestly, surfacing that pain hurts. Keep Pain in the Past will help you identify and face this pain and find closure on your own. Use Dr. Chris Cortman’s easy-to-master method to remember, feel, express, release, and reframe the trauma that has been haunting you for years.

Learn from the success of others: Follow their example in healing yourself. Discover how Sheri, a thirty-seven-year-old attorney, recovered from panic attacks that seemed to come out of nowhere. Follow the journey of Mark, a twenty-nine-year-old army veteran who experienced the horror of war in Afghanistan, as he healed from the downward spiral that had caused him to lose his job and become increasingly uncommunicative with his family. Explore how Melinda, a forty-two-year-old professor who struggled to sustain a romantic relationship, confronted her torturous childhood and has now found love that is still going strong after three years.

Keep Pain in the Past achieves what conventional therapy does not. After reading this book, you will be able to:

  • Confront the emotional baggage of your past
  • Reach closure by completing the event
  • Discover a life unhaunted by the trauma of your past
