Traumatic stress can evoke emotional extremes in survivors who are often described as feeling “too much” (flooding) or feeling “too little” (shut down). This workshop introduces participants to a range of neurobiologically-informed therapeutic tools and techniques that can be utilized in clinical practice with dysregulated clients. Keeping the body in mind, we will experiment with a range of body-based, “bottom up” interventions designed to promote grounding and attunement and facilitate self-awareness and affect regulation for trauma survivors.
Participants in this short course will be able to:
Describe the basic (mind-body) neurobiology of trauma.
Identify and assess affect dysregulation in clients and self.
Practice a range of somatic interventions focused on grounding, attunement and affect regulation.
Apply neurobiologically-informed (brain wise) approaches in clinical practice.
This program is appropriate for clinicians at all levels of experience and offers 3 CEs.
