Live Online Webinar
Tuesday, August 4, 2020
NYSED and ASWB Approved for 3 CE contact hours
Capital T traumas, lower case t traumas, Post-Traumatic Stress Injury, and Accumulated Stress will be defined, illustrated and discussed. A Neurological understanding of Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress and Accumulated Stress Injury will be achieved through an understanding of how the Autonomic Nervous System functions. And how trauma not only results in the deregulation of the ANS when triggered by traumatic memories, but how the post traumatic life is defined by an inability to sustain a period of calm or relaxation in general. The clinical implications of Trauma, Post Traumatic Stress and Accumulated Stress Injury and the various treatment approaches will be elucidated by case studies. An analysis of the most effective evidence-based interventions will be described and demonstrated.
Participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate the ability to distinguish between a bad experience and a traumatic one through feedback and clinical illustrations.
- Gain an understanding of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and how injury to the ANS is at the core of Post Traumatic Stress Symptoms through feedback and clinical illustrations.
- Gain knowledge of the difference between Post Traumatic Stress and Accumulated Stress Injury (also distinguishing ASI from GAD) through feedback and illustrations.
- Identify the most recent treatment approaches Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress—Symptom Relief, Cognitive Re-Association and Integration, the Titration of bound up Traumatic Energy—through feedback and clinical illustrations.
