Personality disorders and chronic mood disorders are often the results of early attachment wounds and various traumas impacting the brain and neurochemistry. Restoring-Self-Cohesion (RSC) is the Christian integrative psychodynamic approach designed to help the clinician identify and resolve the root dynamics perpetuating the symptoms and progressively take the willing client through a process of restoring alignment to the Christian client’s internal world. This enables the client to dismantle strongholds, mindsets, behavior dynamics, and soul issues producing personality features and unremitting mood symptoms. The goal is to help clients resolve the original trauma, reduce personality disorder and chronic mood symptoms, and learn how to live from their spirit-person/true-self again. Many trauma survivors describe dissociating, cyclical relationship patterns, and perpetually feeling anxious, insecure, unsupported, disrespected, and abandoned. Psychologists, licensed mental health providers, and medical professionals want their clients to reduce the negative symptoms and regain the vibrancy and joy that comes from living from the Spirit. The most frequent feedback from clients is that they feel like themselves again.

Learning Objectives

1. Summarize the complexity of the internal world and how trauma produces misalignment within the internal world of our clients
2. Explain procedures on how to help bring resolution to where the misalignments were originally produced
3. Formulate ways to help clients learn how to live in the proper alignment with the Spirit rather than from their souls
