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.  The artist website.   I love this guys imagination.
