Trauma affects the body, mind, and soul of a person and often has far-reaching devastating effects. These effects are because a person comes away from the trauma with half memory of what happened, causing a person to be stuck. Through memory theory, we’ll discuss how to make the memory whole again, taking it into the prefrontal cortex where it can be processed, and a person can begin to move forward in their life.
