What to Expect from Super Resourcing

What is Super Resourcing?

Super Resourcing (SR) is designed to help people who suffer from distressing attachment wounds, either from singular events or from long-term challenging experiences.  These wounds may manifest in a variety of ways, including:

      • Difficulties in maintaining healthy relationships
      • A compromised capacity for essential trust of self or others
      • A greater susceptibility to stress
      • Difficulty regulating emotions
      • Impulsive behaviors
      • Social isolation
      • Trouble sleeping
      • Failure to reach out and initiate contact with others
      • Feeling wary or doubtful of others

SR offers a new way of thinking about healing attachment trauma that is both creative and grounded in the current research on the neurobiology of trauma and attachment issues repair.

One of the foundational benefits of SR is that it presents a paradigm shift; it focuses on the development of positive resources for the part of you who experienced the trauma, rather than on the trauma itself.  This results in a lowering of distress and facilitates an enhanced present-time experience of yourself.  It maximizes the development of new and more positive neural networks and personal narratives.  By frequently taking the trauma out of trauma processing, SR challenges the assumption that reprocessing traumatic memories is necessary for their resolution.

After a series of SR sessions, Janice states:

“You know, I feel so strong inside now, and I have my voice back.  I know who I am.  I don’t really care so much anymore about what my father did to me.  I mean, it was wrong, what he did, and it’ll always be wrong forever, but I just don’t care anymore.  It’s kind of crazy because even though he’s dead, it’s like he was haunting me and still yelling at me, just like he did when I was a kid.  I will never, ever let anyone treat that little girl inside of me the way he did.  Never ever.  She’s safe now, and I’m taking my life back.  I thought we were going to have to go into all those horrible things that happened.  That scared me, and I didn’t want to do it, so I put off coming to therapy for years.  It’s amazing that I could get over it without having to go through it.”

How is SR different from EMDR?

EMDR, as well as many other trauma methodologies, are based on the assumption that reprocessing traumatic memories is necessary for their resolution.  Although this is an effective approach in many instances, SR provides an alternative for many clients; healing and resolution are possible without re-experiencing and reprocessing the original trauma.

An effective EMDR session ends with a positive cognition installation, whereas SR starts with positive installations – i.e., targeting and processing positive images, sensations, emotions, and cognitions.  There is a large body of research on the power of positive imagery and visualization, as it has been found that imagination has a direct influence on perception; therefore, positive imagery has the power to change the way we think about and experience trauma.

In a study conducted by the Karolinska Institutet, published in the scientific journal, Current Biology, the findings detail how imagination can alter mind-brain function.  This finding, along with the conclusion of many mind / brain researchers, forms the foundation of Super Resourcing.

Super Resourcing for Individuals

Achieve healing without having to “walk the coals” of pain and suffering.

SR is a valuable treatment solution for individuals at all stages of healing.  It offers a paradigm shift from conventional therapeutic modalities by focusing on what is best in us and unlocking our dormant positive capacities.  SR can create for you an inner experience of safety, nurturance, protection, and guidance.  The benefits of SR include:

    • Improving self-esteem
    • Restoring essential trust
    • Building confidence in manifesting your highest and best potential
    • Encouraging the development of creativity
    • Developing strategies for navigating challenging situations and events
    • Supporting the integration of different aspects of yourself
    • Initiating and sustaining healthier relationships

One of the foundational benefits of SR is that it targets the solution, not the problem.  By focusing on the part of the person who experienced the trauma, rather than on the trauma itself, a decrease in distress occurs and an enhanced present-time experience of self becomes possible.

Super Resourcing for Couples

Reaffirm those wonderful moments that brought you together.

Celebrate and strengthen what is best about your relationship.  Super Resourcing (SR) provides a safe and supportive environment for couples to explore their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors to work through challenges constructively.

Over time, unresolved issues often begin to blur or distort the essential connection between partners.  SR is like spring cleaning – it provides the opportunity to move beyond current problems and focus on healing and rekindling your relationship.  SR re-enlivens your deeper connective bonds by neurologically installing those positive connections.  Once essential connectivity is re-embodied, the navigation of challenges goes much more smoothly and quickly.
