Bessel van der Kolk and Licia Sky created a special format to allow us to learn the basics of their proposal to approach Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress.
IN A WORLD PREMIERE
they offer us a complete learning package
NEVER SEEN BEFORE
To understand and enjoy Bessel's work, it is FUNDAMENTAL that you read his book "The body keeps track. Brain, mind and body in overcoming trauma." It is in e-book and traditional format in bookstores. We suggest you take advantage of the promotion in the Ghandi Bookstore available until the end of the year.
On March 11 at 9:00 in the morning we will have a previous video conference with Bessel van der Kolk, where you will have the opportunity to learn a little about the fundamental aspects of Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress.
For the first time, Latin American therapists will be able to experience a conference of two unforgettable days with the teacher who has had the most influence in recent years in the world of Trauma Therapy. Here, all the previous information will come together so they can make the most of the experience.
If "The body keeps he score“, it is right there that Licia Sky will take us, in a one-day face-to-face workshop, to find tuning, healing and connection through conscious, moving meditation, theater exercises, writing and the voice as tools to embody physical and emotional healing.
Step 5: THREE MONTH FOLLOW-UP.
Three months after meeting, we will have a videoconference with Bessel to review together the advances and difficulties you have had in their therapeutic work.
During the last decade, a tremendous amount has been learned about the neurobiology of trauma and the nature of memory in trauma survivors. From his innovative work The Body Keeps the Score, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk will explore the clinical implications of these findings and a variety of new research-based approaches.
Recent neuroimaging studies suggest where memories are stored in the brain and possible mechanisms for the recovery of traumatic memories. While ordinary memory is an active and constructive process, traumatic memories are stored as sensory and perceptual fragments dissociated from experience. Depending on the age at which the trauma occurs and the victim's social support systems, memories are constructed differently.
The conference will include the profound effects of trauma on cognition, the regulation of affection and the development of the "I" and interactions with others. You will learn how trauma and disruptions in attachment bonds affect the development of identity, and how this is expressed socially in the form of difficulties in modulating affection, in destructive behavior against oneself and others and in negotiating the intimacy.
The course will deal with how childhood trauma affects the development of self-esteem, the ability to identify and negotiate personal needs and the ability to interact effectively with others. The rest of the day will take in the exploration of treatment alternatives.
Since traumatic traces are stored in subcortical brain areas and are largely dissociated from verbal memory, the somatic experience of trauma-related sensations and affections is a central focus. You will learn how neurofeedback, yoga, theater, IFS and EMDR can help solve the traumatic past and analyze the integration of these approaches during the different stages of treatment.
In response to trauma fixation and learned helplessness, the workshop will explore interventions aimed at restoring the active domain and the ability to serve the here and now.
Given the fragility of interpersonal ties after interruptions of trust, empathy problems, interpersonal repetition and limits within the therapeutic relationship will also be addressed by examining the role of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Model Mugging and programs. of therapeutic work.
