Trauma, Memory and the Restoration of One’s Self

Feb 08 - 13 Begins in 3 months
with Bessel van der Kolk & Dana Moore with Special Guest Licia Sky

Trauma changes the way the brain processes information and the body engages with the world. This course explores how trauma affects people’s rhythms within themselves and with their surroundings. Because of altered biological systems, traumatized people continue to be trapped by their history and react to current experience in a myriad of ways as a replay of the past.
