Laying out the groundwork for understanding trauma
2 lessons 60 mins
This lecture examines how we understand what trauma does to the mind and body and explores the rich history of trauma, as considered by some of the great thinkers of the western canon’s past. This foundational approach provides insights into our modern perceptions of and approaches to discussing, treating, and reimagining trauma and how it inhabits the body.
Foundations of Trauma focuses on the history and physiology of trauma. With insights from Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, Pierre Janet, and Ivan Pavlov, Dr. van der Kolk lays the groundwork for understanding how trauma is lived out in heart-breaking, gut-wrenching sensations and how traumatic experiences condition responses and predispose the traumatized to a fixation on what happened to them. Because treating trauma requires more than talk, we will examine why we must manage states of hyperarousal with deep, visceral experiences in order to rewrite our internal maps of the world and restore a sense of safety. We will examine the role of interpersonal rhythms and attunement in establishing a sense of self and community and consider how trauma affects self-awareness and self-regulation.
