When Trauma Stops Time: How to Apply Clinical Recovery Strategies
Diane Poole Heller, PhD
The “encapsulated child” is an un-integrated aspect of personal experience that has been split off due to childhood trauma or stress. When trauma is triggered, ego states defined by certain ages may still be experiencing the difficulties of a painful past. Through this hands-on session, learn how to access body wisdom, engage the encapsulated child, discharge energy caught in fear, and apply corrective experiences to meet previously unmet needs to evoke intrinsic capacities to heal.
The Neurobiology of Empathy
Babette Rothschild, MSW, LCSW
Empathy is a double edged sword: When used consciously, empathy gives us important insights into all levels of our client’s experiences. But, when activated habitually or unconsciously, empathy might leave us reeling from the impact of lives that are not our own. This session will highlight the most relevant research on empathy, including the neurological and somatic mechanisms of transmission from one person to another. You’ll put theory into practice with exercises that teach tools for maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks of empathetic resonance.

Healing the Mind through the Power of Story: the Promise of Narrative Psychiatry
Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, PhD
Psychiatry and contemporary mental health have largely failed in the biomedicalization of human suffering and pain. The narrative paradigm offers an elegant solution that bridges the knowledge of indigenous cultures with the findings of contemporary neuroscience. We will see how these changes will make us more compatible with indigenous thought and able to bridge their knowledge with our own.
The Central Park Jogger: Healing to Wholeness
Trisha Meili, MBA, MA
Shortly after 9:00 pm on April 19, 1989, a young woman out for a run in New York’s Central Park was savagely beaten, raped and left for dead.

Fourteen years later, Trisha Meili revealed her amazing story of survival and recovery in her best selling memoir, I Am the Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility. Listen as she shares her story; how her journey of healing clearly linked the mind, body and spirit and taught her to look at healing in a new way. Learn the lessons that allowed her to move beyond being a victim to reclaim her life and become whole.
Resource Tapping: Step-by Step Instructions for Managing Emotions and Reducing Anxiety with Trauma Patients
