The Neurobiology of Trauma—Practical Implications (April 16, 2014)
3:00-4:30 PM (EST)
When people experience trauma, their brain function can be severely impacted. Understanding what trauma does to the brain, and the ability of trauma victims to cope with stress, learn, remember and relate to others, is critical for those working with victims of abuse.
Part One of this webinar will provide a basic understanding of how the brain can be damaged by, and adapts to cope with, traumatic stress. We will examine how trauma can manifest itself in a range of behaviors.
Part Two will show how an awareness of these biological processes related to trauma can translate into practical approaches for those who work with trauma victims – approaches which can serve the wellbeing of providers and victims alike.
