Everything you need to know about Trauma. Delivered in an accessible six part recorded webinar series with an informative downloadable handbook.

UNDERSTANDING TRAUMA WEBINAR SERIES

The ability to support clients who present with trauma, stress and anxiety is an important part of any therapist's work, this in depth, yet accessible series is a must for those who wish to take their practice deeper.

This six part recorded Trauma Series explores the many ways trauma & stress may be held and expressed in the body resulting in symptoms that clients frequently present with, for example chronic pain, fatigue, sleep issues, migraine, headache, digestive issues. Unresolved trauma underlying these chronic symptoms needs to be addressed in order for pathology to truly resolve.

We will look at the ways humans respond to perceived threat and overwhelm (stress and trauma).  This will include looking at the Polyvagal theory and its application in clinical practice.

An understanding of this will enable us to meet dysregulated states in ourselves and our clients. For improved clinical results and a deep understanding of trauma, this series is a must.

1.    Overview of trauma, stress and anxiety and their manifestation in the body, causing symptoms.
Finding health in the system through the felt sense.
2.   Explore the Polyvagal theory, and its significance in perceived threat and safety.
Understand our fight/ flight and freeze responses & how we, as mammals, evolved as social beings; we are relationship seeking & need human interactions for health. Explore how we co-regulate in response to others via our social engagement system.
3.    Neck tension, the orienting response and hypervigilance.
Neck tension is endemic; some clients have heightened vigilance & startle responses that can interfere with sleep and the ability to relax. This can cycle within the nervous system, creating sensitisation and producing chronic pathologies. Explore the physiology behind this patterning and how to support change.
4.    Recognise and down-regulate states of hyper-arousal (Fight or Flight).
What changes do we witness in the physiology and felt sense of our clients and how can we support them to resolve these states?
5.    Recognise and engage with hypo-arousal states (Freeze / dissociation).
What changes do we witness in the physiology and felt sense of our clients and how can we support them to resolve these states?
6.    Working with the jaw, face, throat and voice.
We will look at particular issues that are held in these clinically rich areas, giving therapists confidence to use their voice to facilitate trauma resolution – here we will directly work with the social engagement system and verbal skills.
