Understanding Trauma: A Neuroscientific Approach

Trauma impacts individuals in complex and profound ways, influencing their behaviors, emotions, and overall well-being. This training delves into the neuroscience behind trauma, offering insights into how traumatic experiences affect the brain and body. Participants will explore the role of epigenetics in transmitting trauma across generations and learn about the mechanisms of trauma responses, including fight, flight, freeze, and fawn.

The training also highlights the critical concepts of hope and resilience, demonstrating how these factors can mitigate the effects of trauma and promote healing. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how interventions, such as trauma-informed care and therapeutic techniques, can positively influence the recovery process.

Key Topics:
• Neurobiology of trauma: Understanding the brain's response to stress and trauma
• Epigenetics: How trauma can be passed down through generations
• Trauma responses: Exploring the fight, flight, freeze, and fawn responses
• Hope and resilience: The role of these factors in trauma recovery
• Interventions: Trauma-informed care, therapeutic approaches, and community support

Who Should Attend: This training is ideal for mental health professionals, counselors, social workers, educators, and anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of trauma and its impact on individuals and communities.
