Join us on February 11, 3pm EST for a free live interview with Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD
With Dr. Lanius, we will explore the emerging neuroscience of trauma therapy, her research, and her upcoming course, a four-part weekly webinar series investigating vestibular and cerebellar systems, how they are affected by trauma, and how bottom-up therapeutic modalities can help improve patient outcomes.

Restoring Emotion Regulation, Balance, and a Sense of Self in the Aftermath of Developmental Trauma
Course begins February 18.
Trauma survivors frequently feel estranged from their internal and external world. In addition to perceptual challenges, they may find it difficult to locate their body in space, which can leave them feeling vulnerable, clumsy, uncoordinated, and unable to engage in purposeful action.
Can we combat such foundational difficulties? How can we help the traumatized person to befriend their internal sensations, to become embodied, active, and safe in this world? Research evidence shows that this transformation is possible. From a devastating disembodied experience of developmental trauma, they can connect with others through curiosity, language, and play.
In this four-part online course, we will examine evidence-based, bottom-up treatment approaches that target sensory, vestibular, and motor experience to regulate critical higher cognitive functions, including emotion regulation, cognition, and theory of mind. Participants will come away with a grounded understanding of the emerging neuroscience, based on research with developmentally-traumatized individuals, that supports this integrative approach for traumatic stress syndromes.
Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD is one of the leading clinical neuroscience researchers in the study of the traumatized brain and one of the few who has focused her research on the importance of neurofeedback in treatment of trauma. She is the co-author of Healing the Traumatized Self: Consciousness; Neuroscience; Treatment written with Paul Frewen, PhD and co-editor of The Impact of Early Life Trauma on Health and Disease: The Hidden Epidemic, with Eric Vermetten and Clare Pain. She has published over 150 research articles.
Four Sessions Thursdays 3 - 4pm EST
About the course
Each session of the course will be recorded and available to registrants to watch from the website as many times as you like.
In most cases, the recording will be posted a few days after the live session. Occasionally, for technical reasons, it may take a little longer.
Registrants will have access to the recording to watch as often as they like for 30 days from when it is posted.
Participant does not need to attend the live session to qualify for CEs. You can post that you are present in the live session in the chat, or watch the video recording later, once it is posted. You will need to pass a short quiz for each lecture, and also complete the evaluation after all the sessions are done. If you follow these guidelines, it is possible to get 3 CE credits from APA for this course
