How can therapy help to restore a sense of self after trauma?

Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD, describes her 6-part course about the major brain networks and therapeutic strategies to help recover from trauma.

 

This six-part weekly webinar explores critical brain systems that are affected frequently by trauma and how altered functioning of each brain system can be associated with certain trauma-related symptoms.

The effects of a variety of present- and past centered therapies, including mindfulness training, body-oriented approaches, neurofeedback, heart rate variability training, brain stimulation, EMDR, CBT/prolonged exposure, will be then be discussed to illustrate how trauma treatment can lead to the restoration of critical brain networks and contribute to the healing from traumatic stress.


Registrants will have access to the recording to watch as often as they like for 90 days.

If completed in its entirety, 6 APA Continuing Education credit hours are available for this recorded course. To qualify, you will need to answer the quiz after each session (with a 75%), and also complete the course evaluation when you've watched the lectures.
