BROOKFIELD, Conn., Sept. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "How Did We Get Here?: Our Refusal to Know the Truth About Ourselves," blows the whistle on trauma.
"In our adult lives, whether we realize it or not, we re-enact again and again the wounding and trauma we experienced as children. More of us than we know were wounded long, long ago. As a result, more of us than we can conceive are re-creating the trauma in our lives today, affecting us, those close to us, our country, and our world," said author Judith Barr, M.S., a depth psychotherapist, a "Midwife to the Soul," and a licensed professional counselor with a private practice in Brookfield, Conn. "Imagine if everyone made the commitment to explore and heal those roots in themselves."
For over 40 years she has done innovative work that has helped change people's lives from the inside out. She is called to help people connect the dots between the roots of their individual wounds and the wounds of our planet. She has a full, whole-hearted commitment to helping create healing in our world in the therapy room and wherever she has the opportunity.
"So many of us ask ourselves in these times, 'How did we get here?' So many of us even believe we know," she said. "Sadly, when most of us try to respond to this difficult question, our answers barely scratch the surface. Few of us – far too few of us – try to go deep enough to see even the barest roots of why our lives, our countries, and our world are in the condition they're in."
People have all sorts of explanations for how we got here - nationally and globally.
"It's financial. It's political. It's patriarchal. It's prejudicial. It's misogynistic. It's abuse. And more. Each viewpoint can be explored and seem to explain the cause from a valid perspective. Yet all accounts are at or near the surface. No matter how long we have believed the explanations, no matter how deep they appear to go, none of them reaches the roots of the way in which we got here. None of them even alludes to the reality that there are root causes deep beneath each explanation. And none of them even hints at the central reality that underlies all the explanations," Barr said.
"Find out more and be part of the healing," she said.
"In simple prose, this book reveals the profound truth of trauma. If we want to survive as a species, we must stop the emotional and physical abuse of childhood. We must abandon cultural norms based upon deeply flawed philosophical musings about human nature going back thousands of years. We must recognize that we are emotional beings, not rational beings. Only in this way can we stop the cycle of trauma that Judith Barr bears testament to."

"Engaging and heartfelt, 'How Did We Get Here?' tells the truth of how humanity has created the crisis we are currently experiencing. It is written with love and compassion for what we've created up-to-this-point, but also with a very strong sense of urgency for humanity to heal its wounds, if we want to save ourselves and our beautiful planet. Healing, as Judith points out, is the medicine desperately needed for these times. Thanks to Judith for speaking up, standing up, and assisting all of us with her healing energy."
