Event Details

Working with the Neurobiological Legacy of Trauma

Recent developments in neuroscience research and the evolution of new treatment techniques offer some hopeful answers to the puzzling and frustrating challenges of treating patients with histories of trauma and neglect: troubled interpersonal relationships, autonomic dysregulation, loss of hope or energy, and self-destructive and addictive behavior.  This workshop will use a neurobiological lens for looking at traumatized individuals carrying a range of diagnoses, exploring the implications of this perspective on treatment, and presenting the latest advances in effective interventions. When the symptoms are “decoded” in this way, even the most self-destructive, therapy-destructive, and treatment-resistant behavior becomes comprehensible and treatable.

Using lecture, experiential exercises, and demonstration, participants will learn how to make sense of trauma-based symptoms from a neurobiological perspective and how to use that understanding to choose the most effective techniques for stabilizing the patient and facilitating a more effective treatment.   

 

Course Objectives:

§  Describe the implications of the neuroscience research for assessment and treatment of traumatized individuals

§  Describe the autonomic, cognitive, affective and somatic effects of trauma

§  Describe interventions that directly address the neurobiological effects of trauma
