V408/V508 Thriving in the Aftermath of Trauma

Restoring the Self Through Balance, Rhythm, and Regulation

NOW: 11:30am - 1:30pm & 3:30pm - 5:30pm ET 

Traumatized people often feel alienated from their bodily experience and suffer from profound symptoms of emotional numbness to both positive and negative emotions. Also, they can feel estranged from their external world and don’t know where their body is in space, leaving them feeling uncoordinated, unable to engage in purposeful action, and unable to be in connection with others. Pioneering work in trauma is now beginning to elucidate how these difficulties can be traced back to altered brain functioning. How can we combat such foundational difficulties in order to help people befriend their internal sensations and transform into embodied, active agents in this world, capable of connecting with others through curiosity, language, and play? In this workshop, you’ll discover:

  • An integrative treatment approach—drawing from a range of modalities, including CBT, DBT, sensorimotor therapy, SMART, EMDR, and IFS—to help clients feel “whole” and experience fulfilling relationships with their self and others
  • Bottom-up treatment approaches that target manipulation of sensory, vestibular, and motor experience to bring emotion regulation and connection online
  • How understanding brain networks critical to the experience of the internal and external world can guide our clinical practice

Ruth A. Lanius, MD, PhD, FRCPC, regularly lectures on the effects of trauma both nationally and internationally.
