Trauma is horrendous.
It overwhelms its victims and often the people who try to treat it. It reshapes one’s sense of self, bodily experience and brain organization — leaving people stuck in terror, isolation, and shame.
My life’s work has been to find the most effective pathways to healing trauma. It’s why I founded the Trauma Center, have been part of groundbreaking research, and wrote the #1 New York Times bestselling book The Body Keeps the Score and its forthcoming companion workbook (co-authored with Licia Sky, 2020).
Along the way, I have collaborated with many of the most sought-after pioneers and researchers in our field. Together, we have successfully treated thousands of traumatized children and adults: victims of child abuse, natural disasters, wars, accidents, and human trafficking.
Now we collectively offer this exclusive online course as an authoritative guide to trauma healing.
Together, we will help you discover how incorporating methods such as EMDR, meditation, neurofeedback, yoga, mindfulness, sensory integration, and the arts can deepen your therapeutic skills and lead to deep, lasting healing.
Join us and we will show you how the helplessness, rage, and collapse from past trauma imprints can be transformed through physical experiences — restoring your client’s hope for a brighter future filled with joy, purpose and meaning.
Yours in healing,
Dr. Bessel van der Kolk
