Trauma Informed 2.0: How to Engage the Brain, Mind, and Body to Heal from Trauma

This training is for those who have already received training on Trauma Informed Care, but want to dig deeper.

Traumatized people often experience  incomprehensible anxiety, numbing, and intolerable rage.

It impacts their capacity to concetrate, remember, form trusting relationships, and feel at home and their bodies.  Only making it safe for trauma victims to inhabit their bodies, and to tolerate feeling what they feel, and knowing what they know, can lead to lasting healing.

In this training you will learn strategies to help your clients from Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk’s landmark book The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma.

You will learn about body-brain connections, the problem of traumatic memory, and the following paths to recovery:

  • Owning your self
  • Language
  • Letting go of the past
  • Learning to inhabit your body
  • Putting the pieces together
  • Filling in the holes
  • Finding your voice

There is no one size fits all approach to helping people with trauma. Get ready to learn a variety of strategies in this training!
