Trauma Informed Training

  • Mount Carmel West 793 West State Street Columbus, OH, 43222 United States (map)

Part 2: August 15, 2017 - The Healing Power of Connection Neuroscience is demonstrating that some of the most challenging behaviors connected with treating trauma are actually biologically based fear responses more related to fear based dysregulation than intractable behavior. As Maureen Walker reminds, “Strategies for disconnection are an intense yearning for connection in an atmosphere of fear.” We will examine how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) create repeated fear responses and disrupt the “felt safety” (neuroception) needed for the attachment and regulation centers of the brain to work properly. Setting power struggles aside, we will explore how the brain heals itself and identify everyday, brain-based interventions to help individuals of all ages and ability levels work with their caregivers to replace challenging behaviors with safe, healing connection.
