We know people are struggling in silence.
When we know better, we do better.

EVERYONE struggles. This includes parents, healthcare workers, firefighters, police officers, social workers, public servants, teachers, animal care workers, celebrities, artists, children of all ages. Nearly everyone we know has felt an impact from trauma whether directly or indirectly.   

"You have the power to hold yourself back or heal yourself back together. 
Ultimately, you make that decision." 
Kimberly Resch

“In this time of global uncertainty and dis-ease people need to relieve stress and require tools to proactively traverse the current state of the world. Many people don’t realize their current reactionary experiences are a direct result from childhood trauma.”

LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

LIVING WELL AFTER TRAUMA

BONUS : Discussing how to live well with PTSD
Tony Seahorn, Survivor & Dr Janet Seahorn, Expert  

Director's Statement

Light in the Darkness: Living Well After Trauma is intended to generate awareness around post-traumatic stress (PTS) and create a knowledge of post-traumatic growth. We have had the chance to talk to a very diverse group of survivors brave enough to share their stories. I know people will be shaken to their core by what some of these people have been through and moved to tears by how they have continued to live after tragedy. When we set out to make this film it was very important to me that, in sharing these powerful stories with the world, we would specifically avoid making purely “trauma cinema”; that’s to say, I did not want the movie to just be people telling the audience about the worst things that have ever happened to them. While this is watchable and entertaining, it does not help as many people.

Thus, while we included survivors’ stories to help bond the audience with these souls, it was important that we didn’t stop there. We wanted to leave the audience with hope in their hearts—either for themselves if they are suffering or for their loved ones. To this end, the film seeks to teach the viewer about the true nature of this normal reaction in the brain to an abnormal event and that it has real, physically observable consequences for the body and brain. While making the film I was quite surprised to learn just how physical a mental disorder really is on the body. I think many viewers will be just as surprised.

It was important to highlight the number of different paths that people can take to recovery. Most are familiar with the basics (such as therapy and pharmacology), we quickly discovered that these are not the only solutions out there. We spoke with numerous experts, looking to highlight alternative treatments which could, hopefully, give people a starting point. The goal with this was to emphasize the fact that the most effective treatment is the one which you resonate the most with.

Upon screening this film, it is my hope that both survivors and their loved ones will understand post-traumatic stress better and go on to be a light in the darkness for themselves and others.

In its entirety, the film, Light in the Darkness aims to educate, empower, and enlighten. There exist many alternative medicines and ways to improve the reality of living with PTS, and this is one of the major messages of hope the film delivers. We share exciting new developments in research, alternative treatments such as brainspotting, and discuss how practices such as the martial arts can provide structures of discipline and mental strength.

Furthermore, the values of music, family, support, and a plethora of other positive solutions are discussed as a means of encouragement for those suffering from PTSD. In doing this, the film aims to facilitate healing; both for those who are affected by PTS as well as the people close to them.

Films like this are giving you tools, providing information and empowerment to take yourself from that darkness back into the light, to hear stories from others, hear from physicians, those that are working in the treatment world, people who know that you can get better.
