Trauma affects the entire human organism, which gets stuck in neurobiological, immunological and relational survival modes. Neuroscience research shows that the brain regions most affected by trauma are involved in attention and perception,  biasing the organism into perceiving threat and annihilation. These subcortical processes are independent from conscious appraisal or conscious control. This presentation will focus on evidence based treatments that address basic issues of safety, threat appraisal and embodied awareness, illustrated by EMDR,  meditation, yoga, theater, martial arts and sensory integration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the pervasive impact of trauma on perceptual and self-organizing systems

  • Examine various techniques to enhance the subjective experience of safety and self-organization

  • Identify and describe  effective trauma processing techniques
