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.

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.
