This conference brings together a distinguished guest faculty, including experts in the fields of mindfulness, attachment, trauma, interpersonal neurobiology, and trauma-based disorders.
Discussions will transcend boundaries between scientists and clinicians promoting novel and useful dialogue. Leading experts will consider current findings about the mechanisms by which the brain, mind and body interpret traumatic experiences including how emotional and behavioral responses are regulated.
These experts will integrate research and explore various therapeutic interventions including mindfulness practice, interpersonal presence, adaptive information processing, novel clinical work (represented by videotaped sessions) as well as body-focused treatments.
Researchers and mental health professionals now know that affect regulation and the elucidation of innocuous stimuli that are experienced as threats are some of the core issues for the successful treatment of trauma patients. Since traumatic memories often are dissociated and may be inaccessible to verbal recall or processing, the presenters will address modern techniques that are effective in bringing these memories into consciousness.
Then as we begin to understand more about how the brain and body are adversely shaped and damaged by trauma, deprivation and neglect, we can recognize the mechanisms that underlie the processes of healing and develop new cutting edge treatments.
Educational Objectives - Therapists attending this program will be able to:
Outline 3 models for trauma treatment
Integrate aspects of the mind/body connection
Identify 5 steps in effective use of EMDR
Describe 5 ways to use brain research in clinical treatment
Evaluate 2 models designed to foster mindfulness in clients
