Brain In Action: The Neurobiology of Trauma @ The Brighthelm Centre

People who have experienced traumatic events can have significant chang- es in the neurobiology of their brain. The right brain holds emotions, relationship information, and unprocessed trauma, often in the form offlashbacks, body memories, intrusive thoughts and dissociated feelings. It is always turned on by an overactive amygdala. The left brain’s coherent function, which provides meaning to stay in the here and now, is interrupted by stress hormones as the result of danger signals from the amygdala.

Participants will learn to use the Body Double (bd) intervention to workwith the energetic body and the ‘rhythmic rupture’ it suffers, along withthe physical body and the brain, due to traumatic events. The brain-in-action, along with attachment structures, are taught through demonstration and live supervised practice and can be used immediately following the workshop in individual, couples and family therapy, as well as by educators and community organizers. This workshop expands the repertoire of students and practitioners of emdr, eft, sensory motor integration, as well as drama therapy and psychodrama. This workshop provides immediately useful tools for individual, couples, family and group psychotherapies.
