Great discussion. I like what Markk said. I was recently with a new T for several sessions before my insurance changed and I had to quit seeing him. This T also used the concept of learning to be in touch with my body and what it's communicating to me.

While the "inner child" concept was very useful for my CSA work it was not useful at all for the kind of stuff I was processing with this T because it wasn't related at all to childhood trauma.

I think perhaps there are individual professionals within the therapeutic community who "get it" when working with ASA survivors but it seems that the community as a whole are still way behind the curve.
