Trauma and the Brain: Online Training

October 7, 2022

The experience and impact of trauma are not widely understood, which often leads to myths and misunderstandings in society, with significant implications for how this is lived and perceived. Individuals who experience traumatic events will react in different ways and the knowledge of the underlying mechanisms and structures will be a powerful ally in supporting someone who has experienced trauma, with ample research showing the impact of psycho-education on wellbeing and ability to cope.

Learning Objectives:

To expand knowledge on:

  • What is Trauma
  • Neurobiology of Trauma
  • The Autonomic Nervous System
  • The lens of Polyvagal Theory

Who is this course for?

The course is ideal for anyone wanting to learn more about psychological trauma, understanding the physiological mechanisms operating when we experience trauma, how our brain and body process it, as well as the implications in the development of traumatic symptomatology. It is relevant for anyone working with clients who have experienced trauma, with the goal of using this knowledge to understand the impact this may have had and supporting these clients.

This is a less interactive session, offering detailed learning and is ideal for someone who is keen to gain a more in-depth understanding of trauma.
