204 - Neuroscience-based Trauma Treatment

How to Maximize Your Efficacy

Despite your best efforts, evidence-based trauma therapies can fail, leaving you feeling frustrated and helpless. Fortunately, neuroscience research provides insights into why this often occurs, and what steps therapists can take to maximize treatment efficacy. This workshop offers simple, neuroscience-based skill sets that you can help clients build before initiating evidence-based trauma therapies, as well as straightforward, easy-to-implement techniques that can prepare clients’ brains for trauma-focused treatment. Specifically, you’ll discover: 

  • The five areas of the brain impacted by trauma, and how each contributes to post-trauma symptoms 
  • What neuroscience tells us about the recommended “order of operations” of trauma treatment, and why evidence-based therapies are often initiated at the wrong time 
  • The difference between bottom-up and top-down approaches to therapy, and when to use each during treatment 
  • Four techniques that can help prepare clients’ brains for the often intense, cognitive-heavy work of trauma therapy 

Jennifer Sweeton, PsyD, is a clinical psychologist and internationally recognized expert on trauma, anxiety, and the neuroscience of mental health. Originally trained as a neuroscientist, she’s the author of the bestselling book Trauma Treatment Toolbox. 

Note: This workshop is live.
