Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Confirmation Bias…. another cognitive distortion/behaviour I see clearly occurring. A lot.

confirmation bias

Boy, do I see this occurring a lot.

I see it within religion, within the mental health advocacy/industry, abuse advocacy.

People only want to believe what they want to see, that supports what they choose to believe, no matter how unhealthy, how incorrect, or lacking in evidence to support it.

Closely related to ‘cherry picking’ fallacy. Another cognitive distortion I see everywhere.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
