In this three-part series, the world’s leading trauma researchers and clinicians share their knowledge and perspectives on the nature of trauma, how it is experienced and how when left untreated continues to be re-experienced. You will learn a paradigm for understanding trauma’s far-reaching psychological and physical consequences, without which, psychotherapeutic interventions remain extremely limited, and at times harmful to our clients. This understanding of trauma and its sequelae is essential to any clinician working in the field of psychotherapy.

Part 1

Join the world’s preeminent trauma experts as they share not only their knowledge and clinical acumen, but their most regrettable (and remarkably similar) clinical mistakes. With warmth and grace, they share the successes and failures that have shaped the current trauma paradigm- including new demands for awareness, attention to the body, visceral safety and mindfulness.

Part 2

Learn from the world's leading trauma clinicians and researchers a coherent, comprehensive theoretical basis for understanding the physiology and neuroscience that underlie trauma. You learn the most effective and dangerous techniques, the physical nature of trauma and why trauma effects each client differently.

Part 3

This event features the world's leading experts on trauma treatment discussing the latest and most effective modalities for optimal treatment outcomes. Learn how to effectively work with memories, process traumatic materials, which modalities are the most effective and new diagnostic issues and updates.
