Shrinking the critic, grieving, Pete Walker

"Still on a cognitive level, we take our next steps into the long work of shrinking the critic. Some survivors will need to do a great deal of work on this level before they can move down to the emotional layer of work which is learning how to grieve effectively."

"When sufficient progress is made in grieving, the survivor naturally drops down into the next level of recovery work. This involves working through fear by grieving our loss of safety in the world. At this level, we also learn to work through our toxic shame by grieving the loss of self-esteem."

"As we become more adept in this type of deep level grieving, we are then ready to address the core issue of our trauma-- the abandonment depression itself. Work here involves releasing the armoring and physiological reactivity in our body the abandonment depression via the somatic work discussed in chapter 12. This work culminates with learning to compassionately support ourselves through our experiences of depression"
-Pete Walker, "Complex PTSD: from Surviving to Thriving"
