Trauma in the Mind’s Eye: Mitigating & Eliminating Intrusive Thoughts, Flashbacks & Nightmares
Presented by: Natalie Zlodre, MSW, RSW
Date: Friday Oct 13th, 2017
Location: The Highland County Club, LONDON, ON
This workshop is designed for experienced front-line workers who provide short-term (non psychotherapy) counselling contact with vulnerable populations in community-based settings.
Traumatic experiences that are frozen, stuck and unprocessed have the potential to exacerbate and to generalize stress reactions. We will learn what causes certain memories to become traumatic. We will review the neurobiology of stress on memory systems and cognitive distortions that sear trauma responses in the nervous system. Some memories are based on fear, helplessness and horror, and others memories are fortified by cognitive stuck points (guilt, shame, absorption of perpetrator messages, cultural/religious beliefs).
