I’ve talked with hundreds of people who have experienced trauma in many different ways and without fail there is a common theme each expresses; really good and well-meaning people use words and phrases that can be presumptuous and cause inadvertent pain or discomfort. I experienced this myself and want to help individuals and professionals understand the unintended side effects of dicey words and phrases like ‘closure’, ‘now you can move on’, I know how you feel, and others. Words are powerful tools that can have multiple meanings, how they are used and interpreted usually determines whether they are accepted in a positive or negative manner. Awareness of commonly used words or phrases, that may be perceived differently than their intended use, can help avoid misconception, conflict, and distress. Who Can Benefit? Family, Friends, Business Professionals, Law Enforcement, Doctors, Lawyers, The Media, and Others.
