I've been seeing so many posts of Facebook and Twitter about this series on trauma, development, and neuroplasticity being led by Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD that I have to share about it here on ACEs Connection as well. Please find details excerpted below from the EEGLearn website.
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 will explore 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.
