About this Event
Online / Live Stream
Whether we are aware of it or not, trauma has impacted all our lives. You may have life experiences where pain played a vivid role, or your experience might have involved more subtle transgressions. Whatever your relationship to the concept of trauma, we live in a culture that widely misperceives the phenomenon of trauma, and consequently lacks the framework to help a majority of us heal and turn our wounds into resources. Trauma is commonly perceived as solely the result of experiencing or witnessing significant events. This view leads to a misunderstanding of what trauma is and how it impacts our lives, as well as a minimization of the effects of traumatic experiences that do not fit the common definition of exposure to a dramatic and distressing event.
This course aims to change our understanding of what trauma is, how it is stored in the body, and how it affects our daily lives. Practitioners and researchers in the field are finding that much of what we thought we knew about trauma is wrong. Evolving research has shifted our understanding of trauma from a disorder to a survival response that carries within it mechanisms for healing. This course will discuss those healing mechanisms and how to access them and will provide a list of additional resources for those curious to deepen their understanding of this subject.
