CREATE is a charity focused in improving the mental and emotional health of children. Our goal is to create materials that strengthen the body-brain connection by focusing on somatics and memory techniques.

These skills are supported by free worksheets, fun e-books and interactive materials (coloring books / party games) to help commit them to memory.

See our courses to learn more about how we incorporate the law of motion into a simple problem solving method or how we understand anger as a useful emotion.

Hi! I'm Dr. Wallace
Supporting Author - Lesson 1

I am a Professor of Health and Human Development and a part of leading a survivor-based trauma recovery revolution. I utilize IFS therapy as a non-pathologizing approach to addressing trauma. The Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapeutic approach takes the idea that all of us have different parts to us. Almost like having these small voices inside.

These parts of us are different for everyone and express themselves in different ways. They can be thoughts, sensations, or feelings. I support others through events where they feel torn by being pulled in two different directions (“A part of me feels…but another part of me feels…”) and events where they get into an internal conflict and parts have taken extreme roles, or gotten stuck in the past.

This approach doesn’t pathologize people like most therapy does. Instead it offers a warm, safe environment designed to get clients to access their and heal their burdened parts. Clients report feeling less turmoil, physically better, and a sense of calmness when they can access.
