This is important within the therapeutic relationship, with someone suffering Complex PTSD.
This is what builds trust.
This is what helps the inner child, to trust.
Without trust, without validation, without knowing the therapist understands the pain caused and expresses & models emotions about the abuse, about the abusers (including anger)…….which is what the sufferer has not received……the sufferer won’t engage.
These unmet needs, need to be met within the counselling/therapeutic relationship.
