This webinar will cover the impact that trauma has on the functioning of the body and the brain, including the neurobiology of trauma and how trauma changes the nervous system. By understanding the impact that trauma has on the body and mind, we develop a greater understanding of the need for more holistic approaches to healing. Different body-centered theories and approaches to working with trauma will be discussed, including EMDR, yoga, somatic experiencing, and mindfulness-based approaches.
