Description: Trauma is a complex condition and according to Peter Levine, PH.D., “The most avoided, ignored, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering.” This workshop will help the professional gain a better understanding of trauma, obvious and less obvious ways in which it can occur, and how it impacts the grieving process. The importance of using sensory interventions in the therapeutic process will be explained and examples will be shown. Techniques will be learned through interactive participation.

 

Objectives:     

1. Identify ways in which trauma can occur and the ways one can be exposed to a traumatic inducing situation.

2. Identify common reactions found in Grief and compare with those found in a traumatized person. Learn how trauma affects the brain and the grief process.

3. Learn sensory activities and why they are vital to the healing process of the traumatized individual
