Welcome to the Emotional Foundations Elective Unit, a crucial part of your journey through understanding and healing from CPtsd. This unit is designed to guide you through six comprehensive modules, each meticulously crafted to integrate essential emotional and developmental knowledge into your life or the lives of your clients. Through this elective, we aim to fill the gaps left by CPtsd, addressing the lack of foundational elements that are vital for a healthy emotional life and overall well-being.

Building Blocks for Healing

CPtsd often results from missing crucial developmental and emotional milestones. This elective unit focuses on integrating five key elements into our lives that CPtsd may have compromised:

Safe Emotional Expression: Learning to recognize, label, and safely express emotions, facilitating a path toward healing.
Boundaries and Self-Protection: Understanding and implementing healthy boundaries to protect oneself emotionally and physically.
Self-Compassion: Cultivating kindness towards oneself, counteracting the often harsh self-criticism faced by those with CPtsd.
Interpersonal Skills: Developing the skills necessary for building and maintaining healthy relationships, enhancing social support networks.
Emotional Regulation: Mastering strategies to manage intense emotions, leading to greater emotional stability and resilience.

The Vital Role of Emotional Foundations

  • Integrating these components into our lives is not just beneficial; it is crucial for our brain and our overall functioning. The absence of these foundational elements can significantly impact our lives in several ways:
  • Brain Function: Without these emotional foundations, our brain remains in a heightened state of alert, making it difficult to engage in higher-order thinking, problem-solving, and emotional regulation.
  • Relationships: A lack of development in emotional and interpersonal skills can lead to difficulties in forming and maintaining healthy relationships.
  • Self-Perception: Without self-compassion and a safe way to express emotions, individuals may struggle with self-esteem and identity.
  • Coping Mechanisms: The inability to regulate emotions can lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms, further complicating the healing process.

By addressing these gaps, the Emotional Foundations Elective Unit aims to provide a comprehensive approach to healing from CPtsd. Not only does this elective seek to restore what was lost or never developed, but it also empowers individuals to build a life characterized by emotional well-being, resilience, and fulfilling relationships. This journey is essential for anyone seeking to overcome the challenges of CPtsd and thrive, not just survive.

"Linda Meredith is a powerhouse when it comes to bringing research and information together to help us understand complex trauma. More importantly, she breaks things down in a way that is easily accessible with a program that is uber flexible. What that means is that I can take as little time or as much time as I need, depending on the topic and how I engage with it. The homework isn't about regurgitating information or memorizing terminology, but rather how we can embody the knowledge while healing from complex trauma ourselves. In that way, I get ah ha moments about how what I learn can support clients.
An incredibly generous professional who has learned so many things about business the hard way, Linda prolifically creates beautiful templates, workbooks, and packettes of information to make it easier for new coaches to run their business. It's as if she deeply desires for each and every person to succeed as they go out there to support their clients in complex trauma recovery. I feel as though I have Linda 24/7 in my back pocket encouraging me, checking in with me, and supporting me to do what I need to do for my clients. 
Linda Meredith is a gift to the world and this one-of-a-kind complex trauma certificate program is exactly what I need at this point in my life. Thanks Linda for what you do!"

“Linda has a warm, caring attitude with a sense of humour to boot about the effects of CPTSD on someone. Her insight, videos, articles, and support have helped me over humps and I have seen the effect it has had on others too. Linda speaks not only through her education, but also from her own experience. She understands what brings about CPTSD and how to help you address that trauma in a caring, kind, compassionate, and sometimes firm fashion. I highly recommend her if you are looking to heal from trauma you’ve experienced or even if you’re looking to understand more about what CPTSD. Be kind, be understanding, and do yourself a favour and learn from Linda’s materials!.”
