Goals & Objectives
- Distinguish trauma recovery from trauma resolution.
- Acquire more recovery options for trauma clients than processing trauma memories, particularly for those who don’t want to and those who decompensate or dysregulate from that customary practice.
- Employ the sensory nervous system for instant stabilization during therapy sessions and in client daily lives.
- Identify both obvious as well as previously unrecognized resources as antidotes to traumatic stress states.
- Differentiate two types of freeze states from two classes of hypo-aroused states.
- Revive the (too-often) neglected application of therapeutic contracts and treatment planning.
- Gain tools to enable trauma clients to make better (and safer) use of mindful practices such as meditation, MBSR, and yoga.
Dr. Karol Darsa has over 20 years of clinical and administrative experience in trauma and mental health disorders. Dr. Darsa will present Reconnect’s philosophy of integrative trauma treatment. The participants will learn about gentle, body-based processes which help heal and reconnect the mind and body. These clients typically experience dis-regulation due to traumatic events, developmental trauma, or emotional disorders.
