Join the world’s leading expert on trauma Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D. and understand the latest on how our brains, minds and bodies respond to traumatic experiences. Dr. van der Kolk will explain how affect modulation techniques, EMDR, yoga and neurofeedback are used in overcoming the destabilization and disintegration caused by trauma. Watch this seminar recording and take home an understanding of how these experiences are processed by unconscious interpretations (subcortical) that take place outside of awareness. Learn why therapeutic methods that do not depend exclusively on understanding and cognition are needed to move the client beyond the “replay of the past” in their current experiences.
Describe the range of adaptations to trauma early in the life cycle, including loss of affect regulation; chronic destructive relationships towards self and others; dissociation and amnesia; somatization; and on chronic problems, such as self-blame, guilt, shame, chronic distrust and identification with the aggressor
Discuss the various treatments, and the effects that they have been shown to have on the recovery of traumatized individuals
Summarize the recent advances in neurobiology of trauma
