The development of a Safe Place and Higher Power for both the Adult and the Child(ren) minimizes negative reactions to betraying the family secrets and allows clients their feelings. Clients often spend some time in therapy “preparing” to take action. After they have awareness and knowledge, they take initial steps towards changing problem behaviors that would be defined better as the preparation rather than action stage. Once in the action stage, processing and healing now are at a deeper level and cognitive information is used as a foundation for intense feeling work and the beginning toward restructuring of Self and the personality. Clients use their nondominant hand whenever they write from any of their inner children. This technique bypasses the logical, rational left brain and accesses the nonverbal, emotional, intuitive right brain.
