Trauma-Informed Therapy: What We Have Learned

In the past two decades there has been an explosion of research into the effects of traumatic events on the brain and body.  This research has informed our clinical practice for individuals with a history of trauma and attachment wounding.  It has enabled us to not only help clients reduce the symptoms of trauma, but also experience richer, more peaceful lives in the present moment.  In this workshop we will explore the current thinking in the treatment of trauma and how these research findings inform clinical treatment.

Our workshop will include:

-  A brief history of trauma treatment

-  A review of essential neurobiological concepts

- An introduction to body-centered therapies

-  An exploration of how these concepts inform our therapy regardless of theoretical orientation

-  Discussion of an integrated approach to treatment
