Trauma, dissociation and recovery
What happens in the brain as a result of trauma, and what can be done about it?
The cook, the smoke alarm, the watchtower, the timekeeper, the context stamp and the internal CCTV… Which parts of the brain do these metaphors represent, and what effect does trauma have on them? What is the front brain and the back brain? What is the trauma traffic light and the window of tolerance? When you’re in the amber state of fight or flight or the red state of freeze, how do you reengage the front brain to return to the green zone of social engagement? What does all this mean?
This course takes complex neuroscience and makes it simple, clear, relevant and applicable. Find out about seven realms where trauma impacts the brain. Learn about the three phase treatment plan and the green, amber and red of trauma symptoms and disorders.
