Healing process

Emotional Processing refers to the way which the hurts, traumas and stresses of life can be absorbed or worked through to the point where the powerful emotional feelings no longer trouble us. In that sense emotional processing can be likened to a sort of healing. This section on the healing process explains some fascinating psychological aspects of healing including the role of tears in dealing with life’s stresses, whether time really does heal or if other psychological processes are at work, the connection between music and emotional calming and how forgiveness fits in with emotional healing.

Emotional Processing: 'healing through feeling' by Roger Baker


"it is as if the body has a second immune system, an emotional system, devoted not to physical protection but protection from emotional hurt and trauma" 
Baker 2003
