Cross Modal Therapies for 'Both Sides' of the Brain
Cross modal therapy is a trauma- informed creative problem solving approach designed to integrate the impact of overwhelming events and loss into a healthy personal story. To re-process traumatic interruptions in one's life, clients must safely access the non-verbal imagery, sensations and emotions associated with trauma and find methods that promotes creative re- integration of their losses. This therapeutic approach SAFELY accesses the chaotic material of loss and trauma and re-organizes it by using musical, visual, expressive movement and creative writing strategies. It is through this ' image to word' reprocessing that overwhelming events can be translated into a meaningful part of one's personal story. This therapeutic process is designed to help individuals connect with their innate creativity that empowers them to stop the repeating cycles of abuse, helplessness, guilt, shame, and co-dependence. The use of musical, visual, expressive movement and writing exercises combine to effectively re-direct the left brain's negative self-talk and negative core beliefs into positive alternatives. Cross modal therapy is grounded in neuroscience research on trauma, creativity and the brain which strongly suggests that clinicians and clients to 'go beyond the talking cure' to heal the psycho-biological fragmentation caused by traumatic experience.
