I found Havening after having worked years with Hypnosis and NeuroLingusitic Programming which I love, and still do, I had a sensory intervention in the form of Trauma Tapping, an intervention I developed with my colleague Gunilla Hamne, doing international humanitarian work with vulnerable post war communities.
Havening did not replace what I had, it enhanced it tenfold - it gave me a scientific hypothesis to structure interventions around - the theory of depotentiation, of lowering amygdaloid arousal. Since Dr Ruden created this model studying tapping, it fit perfectly into what we were already doing, and, more importantly, gave us a the power of having not one method for lowering arousal, but two. This changed everything.
From this day we have been able to say ”here are two approaches of self regulation that stand on the same principles, do you wish to find out which one works best for you?”
This is what hypnotist Milton Erickson calls a double bind: try these two and see which one works best”. In NLP we call this a presupposition, that one will work - plus, they will need to try two self regulations to find out.
In our context of refugee outreach, prison work, orphanages and survivors of gender based violence and natural catastrophes this has been a blessing. We teach Havening nd tapping in large groups of traumatized people with music and dance with great results and during over 15 years, we have never had one abreaction. This is in part because our approach is Trauma informed in every way and adapted by experience with what we call Clean Communication.
In my private practice, I have helped over 3000 clients to date and Havening is an essential part of my tool kit. Sometimes I need nothing else.
I am happy to share all my experiences as a practitioner as a trainer and as a mentor I have a lot of free materials that I am happy for you to have and to pass on,
We do this in the Peaceful Heart because we have a vision that in a world where people no longer are traumatized there will be less suffering, less aggression, less fear and less violence.
In Kinyarwanda there is a saying: Turikumwe - we are together. Let me know if I can be of service in a session, as a trainer, or as a mentor.
