One of the perils of trauma is that it can destroy a survivor’s sense of time.
But when this happens, how can we help to restore it?
Recently, I spoke with Bessel van der Kolk, MD, considered the world’s leading expert in post-traumatic stress.
Watch below as Bessel explains how trauma affects our patients’ sense of time, and what type of trauma therapy might help re-establish it − it’s only 3 minutes long.
We’ll be getting even more into understanding how trauma affects the body and how we can develop an effective trauma treatment in the webinar this Wednesday, June 6th with Bessel van der Kolk, MD.
Here’s a preview of what we’ll cover:
- How trauma affects the brain
- Why understanding how traumatic memories are stored is key to planning your treatment
- How trauma can destroy one’s sense of time and why this is so critical to recovery
- The four components of an effective trauma treatment
- The effect of child abuse and neglect upon neurodevelopment
- Common mistakes practitioners make
- Can yoga reverse the secondary brain damage caused by trauma?
You can attend the webinar for free, you just have to sign up.
