Additional Information:
This webinar will address how trauma responses, protective during traumatic experience change our brain function and physiology in ways that are not subject to our voluntary control.

It will explain how those changes can result in negative impacts to our functioning, thinking, relationships and work if they are not addressed.

We will learn why we can't just decide to make the effects of trauma recede based on recent brain science.

The workshop will address why we need to learn skills that actually address the changes in brain function during trauma to prevent negative effects.

Skills for addressing trauma responses during traumatic experiences that are not dangerous and immediately post-trauma exposure will be presented.
