Healing Trauma through Mindfulness
January 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$95
Mindfulness is a radically different approach that is quickly being embraced in the clinical community as a way to help traumatized people find tranquility and to cultivate inner resilience to build trust so they can enjoy life once again. This approach fosters a deep sense of self-love that allows the mind and body to relax and settle into a calm space. This calmness allows the body and mind to recover and heal from the traumatic event.
In this workshop, clinicians will:
- Define trauma and understand its impact on the brain and how the body keeps the memory of the trauma
- Understand how to use predictive tools like ACEs test to prevent comorbid illness.
- Experience mindfulness and understand how a regular mindfulness practice can help the brain rewire after exposure to traumatic events.
- Explore how to use mindfulness as a modality in your clinical practice to help clients heal from PTSD, anxiety, depression and many other mental health disorders.
