Objectives
  1. Establish how the multiple layers of connectivity between brain, body and self inform the clinical approach to trauma.
  2. Assess how childhood trauma changes the developmental trajectory of the brain and explore the clinical manifestations of these impacts.
  3. Articulate how insecure attachment at an early age can create a baseline of survival fear.
  4. Specify how clinicians can help clients see emotional states for what they are: temporary.
  5. Characterize the role of the nervous system and hyperarousal in trauma symptomology.
  6. Communicate the role of affect regulation in therapeutic effectiveness.
  7. Support how limbically driven emotions like fear and rage can impede the therapeutic process.
  8. Assess the impact of transference on the therapeutic bond and communicate how clinicians can minimize intense transference.
  9. Characterize how working with brain dynamics can relieve trauma without making clients actively re-experience the trauma.
  10. Articulate how an EEG can be used to identify maladaptive patterns of firing.
  11. Explore the process of inhibiting and rewarding frequencies associated with anxiety and over-arousal in neurofeedback training.
  12. Specify ways in which clinicians can help clients whose lives have been defined by fear transition to a new identity as fear subsides.
