Since the time of Freud, the “talking cure” has been the tried-and-true methodology for addressing mental health concerns. Accepted wisdom dictates that no matter the life challenges one is navigating, talking about it will help make it better. I will not disagree that many problems in life can be made better by talking them out. Having an unbiased person who truly listens, and who can offer objective advice is invaluable. Great insights can be had in this manner. Simply talking about trauma, however, even in a therapeutic setting, is not sufficient to address the profound impact trauma has on both the psyche and on the physical body.
