In this 2-day live workshop, Dr. van der Kolk will discuss his years of practice and research around why our brains are meant to help us cooperate and thrive in a community, and how our job as clinicians can help patients deal with the devastating effects of trauma on mind, brain, and body. He will cover how he integrates developmental, biological, psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.
Attendees will also learn various approaches to help even the most challenging clients rearrange their brain wiring and reactive it to experience pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shares the methods he has experienced himself and therapies used on clients for treating trauma, including sensory integration, neurofeedback, EMDR, meditation, yoga, play theater, and mindfulness techniques. Mental health professionals should be able to acknowledge the relationship between trauma, addictions, PTSD and numerous psychiatric “disorders” and discuss effective trauma treatments for their practice.
For real change to take place, the body needs to learn that the danger has passed and to live in the reality of the present.” — Dr. van der Kolk
