Fight Parts:— Updated Stuck parts

Steven Kenny

Coping with Trauma- Related Dissociation;

Some angry parts are stuck in a fight defense against threat.

*

They have the explicit function of protecting the individual by means of fight responses, either toward other people or towards parts inside that in some way evoke a sense of threat.

*

Fight parts often believe that they are strong, have not been hurt, and are capable of carrying out strong aggressive reactions to perceived threat or disrespectful behavior.

*

Often they view themselves as a tough child or teenager or a large strong man.

All of us with complex PTSD know how anger can consume us and rob of us of any chance of healing.  My path taught me that I was in control of my anger.  I had a choice how to react and I chose not to get angry.  It worked 99% or 95%, it was a great improvement.  You can do it also.
