Overwhelming experiences can reorganize the brain, hijack the body and distort the sense of self. Psychologists often promote integration of traumatic memories using insight and understanding to manage behavior. However, neuroscience shows that very few psychological problems are the result of defects in understanding; most originate in pressures from the deeper regions in the brain that drive our perception and attention.
Our guests Bessel van der Kolk, author of the NYTimes best selling book The Body Keeps the Score, and Rachel Yehuda, a pioneer in the epigenetics of trauma, are experts in the latest scientific research informing innovative trauma treatments, including the use of psychedelics and body-integrated therapies. Please join our exceptional speakers and our host Janna Levin to better understand the science behind these new models of healing.
Before and after the talk, join us for stargazing with the Amateur Astronomers Association of NY, and food by Eat Off Beat will be available all night long.
