Dr. Bessel van der Kolk ‘Healing Traumatic Stress’
‘Helping Mind, Brain & Body To Let Go Of The Past’
Bessel van der Kolk is a leading psychiatrist and researcher in the field of trauma. His book, the body keeps the score, details how the body is reshaped by trauma and how treatments through the body, such as neurofeedback, yoga, meditation can all stimulate the brain’s neuroplasticity to heal.
One of Dr Bessel’s many important points is that the brain is dumbfounded when it experiences a trauma and so talking therapies are quite inefficient when trying to heal which is best done by bypassing language.
This two-day workshop will look at ways that the body can be used to heal trauma and participants will have a chance to practice some of these techniques.
