Norm Quantz, author of Trauma No More: A Six-Step Recovery Guide


Norm & I discuss:

  • How much you understand yourself helps you understand others.
  • It’s why you things.
  • It’s not how you hear things, it’s what you hear in things that matters.
  • The power and control aspect is the most important thing in a relationship.
  • Power is the potential that you have; control is the use of that power in your actions.
  • Our early traumas set in place how we will relate.
  • Trauma is the distance between what you expected to happen and what actually happened.

Norm encourages homeschool parents:

  • Know what impact your power & control dynamics have on your relationships so you are able to better understand how other people are impacting you. They often respond to what they sense from you.
  • Understand your reaction to trauma and what story you created around that reaction.
  • We can use the six-steps of Trauma No More to engage our children so they feel heard and to understand how their trauma feelings affect them.
