Helping Make the Unbearable Tolerable: Trauma & the Treatment of Addiction

Unlike stress, which resolves itself after the event is over, trauma causes people to become physiologically and mentally stuck - hyper aroused and/or frozen, unable to manage their bodily arousal systems. This lecture will clarify the neurobiological underpinnings of these broken biological systems, clarify how addictions are invariably rooted in desperate attempts to manage, and discuss the evidence-based methods that are available to help re-regulate mind and body.
