  1. Kudos for addressing the issues of the most marginalized people in North America face when they are a visible minority, as well as being undocumented immigrants. I can’t even begin to imagine the trauma and the triggered responses immigrants have accumulated when they have had to flee poverty and injustice, when they are unsafe legally, and when they have repeatedly been treated disrespectfully. I’m so impressed with Miguel Gallardo’s courage in working with this level of trauma.

    When I have had the privilege of working with clients who have faced harassment and even imprisonment simply because of their being non-white and male, EVEN tho they are Canadian citizens, it reminds me of how challenging it is for me to really imagine walking in their shoes.

    I wonder if there needs to be more refinement in distinguishing between conditioned trained “defensive” reactions and traumatic automatic “trigger” responses.

    1. Anna, I like your idea of discussing the differences between responses. Thought when I read your wonderment if it is similiar to nerves energized differently. from a neurological perspective. How to translate that for myself and for my clients as they get more attuned to their responses could be very helpful.. Knowledge is power to inprove awareness and make possible adjustments.

  2. Ron Siegel’s comment about how some people dread public speaking more than death made me laugh and rang a bell with me all day! I’m going to try writing ‘nearly dead’ at the top of any dreaded public speaking I have to do from now on. Great round up of this weeks topic, I am grateful that you translate some of it – I love the idea of IFS but I am not trained in this model so Ron talking about parts as defences really helps

  3. Sometimes terms can add a wealth of information as I found with Richard Schwartz’ term “Legacy Burden.” I know that this term will hit home to at least a third of my clients this week if explaining it arises in the course of the work. It is so helpful in tandem with all the others’ information. This topic was so well arranged. Hope to have it tied into the focus of application.

  4. The webinar does not start until the 12th even though it comes earlier into our emals. Sometimes the System is not always without glitches if you go in sooner. Not even sure you will get this post since it is not the 12th in my part of the world. My guess it will be functioning by the 12th.
