Trauma Recovery For The Mind & Body
With equal parts didactic, storytelling, experiential learning and games, participants will come away from this workshop with a solid understanding of the nervous system and how to soothe it in order to create a stable inner foundation for lasting wellness post-trauma.
Traumas are emotional events that overwhelm us and our ability to process and move through them. As a result, a traumatized person can feel that they are at the mercy of the world around them.
In this workshop, we will explore the impacts that traumas have on the mind, body and spirit as well as the most relevant research-based practices for mind-body healing and integration. Using trauma-informed movement and practicing body awareness, we will cultivate a skill set that allows us to reacquaint ourselves with our bodies, practice making choices and have new experiences — some of the natural, life-affirming comforts that are taken from us when traumatic events occur.
Because traumas affect the mind and the body, a two-pronged approach is necessary for creating true, lasting integration. Mind-body tools work because they give the patient a pathway toward healing, building resiliency and broadening the window of tolerance for challenging emotions as well as uncomfortable physical sensations. By addressing the body and managing the nervous system, we can create better internal environments for positive changes to take root.
Post-traumatic stress is at an all-time high due to the pandemic and the effects of uncertainty on the nervous system. The discomfort is present for everyone, without discrimination, wellness professionals and their patients included.

“I most enjoyed the way you distilled very complicated information and made it palatable. You can tell that you are very experienced because what you gave us has hours behind it. I appreciate the personal information that was built into skill-building exercises. This course was really phenomenal!”
