Psychological Trauma in the Age of Coronavirus
The Interplay of Neuroscience, Embodiment, and the Regulation of the Self.
A 6-week program with Bessel van der Kolk where we share, collaborate, and learn together.
Limit 6 per group
Neuroscience research shows that the only way we can change the way we feel is by becoming aware of our inner experience and learning to befriend what is going on inside ourselves.
Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.
Bessel van der Kolk MD has spent his professional life studying how children and adults adapt to traumatic experiences. He translates emerging findings from neuroscience and attachment research to develop and study a range of effective treatments for traumatic stress and developmental trauma in children and adults.
In the past 3 decades, we have learned an enormous amount about brain functions and interpersonal attachment systems. This new knowledge has not always been systematically applied to help traumatized children and adults heal from trauma. Dr. van der Kolk's work is focused on integrating therapy with science.
Dr. van der Kolk has published over 150 peer reviewed articles, diversely ranging from neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, developmental trauma, yoga, and theater to EMDR.Learn More →
This season we are hosting a small group discussion with practicing clinicians to talk about current clinical challenges with Bessel van der Kolk. The zoom meetings will take place every first Tuesday of the month starting October. Therapists are required to submit questions in 3 days prior to the scheduled session and Dr. van der Kolk will review and select the questions to discuss. This is a space to learn from each other so we encourage participants to talk and contribute during the live 1.5 hour discussion.
Restoring a sense of self is critically important in recovering from trauma. Body-centered activities like deep breathing exercises help us regulate our internal states and restore and repair the connection between our minds and our bodies. In this video, Bessel van der Kolk introduces us to the concept of deep breathing as a practice to activate the neural pathway that allows us to access our internal experience.Watch Now →
