Neurophysiology and Overcoming Trauma: Understanding Individual Challenges

Event Dates
April 30, 2019, 1:00 pm EDT - April 30, 2019, 2:30 pm EDT
Event Duration
90 minutes
Location
Online

This webinar explores how personal experiences and unique traumas create commonly felt physical symptoms and investigates how the brain functions reflect a reaction to danger, an action to promote survival, and later, an interpretation of the event.

Detailed Learning Objectives:

1. Explore neurophysiology and the way the brain works, including the pathways between the brain and the thought processes.

2. Understand the epidemiological evidence related to trauma, including traumatic events such as Hongerwinter, Hurricane Katrina, and World War II including the impact these on the children of survivors.

3. Examine the evidence that supports overcoming traumas, e.g. adversarial growth, cognitive behavioral therapy, and support systems, to identify and support the most vulnerable rape victim desiring to thrive again.

4. Reflect about your personal journey, traumas of your parents and grandparents, childhood traumas, and personal capacity to overcome minor traumas. Through this understanding, one can realize a common human bond with persons unable to overcome including those with chronic anxiety and personality disorders that did not have the nature or nurture you experienced.
