Trauma doesn’t just affect the mind and the emotions. It profoundly affects the brain and the body too. Often ‘the body remembers’ what the mind cannot.

Find out:

  • why trauma leads to increased risk for heart disease, cancer and diabetes;
  • the difference between implicit and explicit memory and the reason for ‘body memories’
  • why chronic pain is so common after trauma
  • what the ‘Trauma Traffic Light’ is and how it relates to fight, flight and freeze – and recovery from trauma.

Why is it that so many trauma survivors not only suffer from ‘psychological’ disorders such as complex post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and dissociative identity disorder (DID) but also from a whole raft of physical issues — chronic pain; frequent or recurrent infections; auto-immune disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome (aka ME), fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis; and difficulty in both connecting with the body and living healthily? The body is often both the medium through which the original trauma was enacted, and the source of ongoing suffering and self-hatred.

This training will explore why, to the best of current scientific knowledge, this happens, and most importantly, what can be done about it. We’ll be looking at the impact of trauma on the body, and how it seems that the body can also be a key to unlocking the psychological issues of trauma.

Feedback from the training day that this is taken from:

“Fantastic training! This was an extremely well put-together day which led to so many ‘light-bulb moments’ for me. Really helpful on both a personal and professional level. I have learned so much and will be telling all my colleagues about it.” – WB
