Anatomy of Trauma: Past, Present and Future Approaches to Healing
- 6 CEU's from the MN Board of Social Work, 9am to 3:30pm (30 minute lunch break)
- Saturday, October 7th, 2017
We now know the origins of most unhealthy behaviors and habitual patterns. Trauma, adverse childhood experience and disruption in attachment are at the core of psychopathology across shifts in culture and epigenetic fluctuation. You are invited to learn the interplay between socio-cultural and biological processes that shape our ability—or inability—to experience safety. This workshop deconstructs the anatomy of the brain in order to comprehend emotional dysregulation as it relates to traumatic experience. With up-to-date research on the neuroscience related to trauma as well as instruction on past oriented (exposure therapy and EMDR), present focused (Mindfulness and Seeking Safety) and an introduction to approaches moving forward in the field (Internal Family Systems), you will leave with a developmental perspective on the impact of trauma and applications to restore equilibrium to the body.
- 1. Understand the developmental model for hyperarousal and dissociation (i.e., via interpersonal neurobiology) and learned adaptation.
