Trauma and PTSD Relief Therapy
Trauma is ubiquitous in all of our clinical practices – from accidents and domestic violence to the aftereffects of early childhood abuse, instability and neglect (Developmental Trauma). Trauma changes people’s orientation to their self-worth and efficacy, their capacity to deal with conflict and intimacy, as well as emotion regulation and long-term planning. Trauma at different developmental levels changes brain circuitry differently, and thus: perception, self-regulation and reciprocity.
This updated course will present the most recent findings of the brain science of traumatic stress and demonstrate a wide range of treatment approaches appropriate to each individuals’ specific difficulties, including the therapeutic relationship, affect regulation techniques, including yoga, breath work, acupressure, singing and movement; EMDR, neurofeedback, psychodrama and the legitimate use of psychedelic agents.
