Often the effects of trauma can have a significant impact on daily life long after painful events have passed. These effects may be experienced as frequent agitation, anxiety, or a sense of numbness that seem to belong more to the past than the present. This group uses current trauma theory to explore the ways trauma affects the body and brain and to teach useful skills that will help individuals live a more peaceful life in the present moment. Skills will include: meditation, recognizing triggers, interrupting old patterns, and identifying thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. This group will be experiential with time for practice.
