Description

Renowned trauma expert, Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., has spent over three decades working with survivors. Join him in this transformational conference, and leave with a new understanding of traumatic stress. Learn how trauma can literally rearrange the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control and trust.

This conference will show how trauma affects the developing mind and brain, and teach how trauma affects self-awareness and self-regulation. You will focus on the fundamental difference between trauma desensitization vs. integration and growth, and look at the difference between disrupted attachment and traumatic stress. Dr. van der Kolk will examine the role of interpersonal rhythms and attunement in establishing a sense of self and community. This workshop will discuss and demonstrate affect regulation techniques, examine ways to deal with fragmented self-experience, and teach the benefits of yoga, EMDR, meditation, neurofeedback, music and theater.

Trauma changes development of mind, brain and self. Its treatment requires a spectrum of interventions which Dr. van der Kolk will address:

  • Find words to describe and communicate what is going on
  • Learn to regulate one’s emotions
  • Learn to trust other human beings with shameful and horrific details of one’s life
  • Process traumatic memories
  • Learn to be fully alive in the present

This conference is based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, will give you proven alternatives to drugs and talk therapy—and a way to reclaim lives!
