Trauma doesn’t just affect the mind and the emotions. It profoundly affects the brain and the body too. Often ‘the body remembers’ what the mind cannot, manifesting not just in long-term psychological difficulties but in physical ones too. Trauma is not something ‘all in the mind’, or something that we can just think or talk ourselves out of.
On this course I look at how there is no real split between ‘body’ and ‘mind’ – and certainly not when it comes to trauma.
“I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Although it is set up in bite-sized sections to allow the training to be done in our own time, which is helpful, I found how the topic was presented so interesting that I just wanted to watch one section after the next. Invaluable training for me to gain deeper and deeper understanding of my clients especially from a physiological and neurological perspective.”
“I found the training very interesting with lots of stimulating points for further exploration. Also a very good introduction to the connection between mind and body and the existing research on it. The videos are the perfect length and delivery of the training is clear and stimulating.”
“I thought that this was an excellent course. It is not easy to deliver online training that is so engaging and informative. The breakdown of the overall topic into individual lessons was particularly helpful and allowed me to work at my own pace, manage time dedicated to the training and process the information. Easy to use and navigate. Clarity of information and pace of delivery were conducive to learning. Excellent value for money.”
“Another really good course; I find Carolyn’s ability to express brain science in a way that is clear and easy to understand very helpful. The course was great value for money and very easy to complete/use.”
“The course was in one word – amazing. I found the pace and delivery method just perfect.”
“Brilliant, this has brought together all of the gaps in my knowledge around trauma, the value for the content was incredible and I feel I’m walking away with a whole new toolbox!”
Trauma is a supremely physical phenomenon, affecting every single cell in our body. In fact, trauma is based far more in our body and ‘back brain’ than it is in thinking, human ‘front brain’. In this course I explain what happens in the body at the moment of trauma and how our reactions are determined by survival instincts based in millions of years of evolution. I explain my ‘trauma traffic light’, based on polyvagal theory, and what it looks like in practice – and why the ‘freeze’ response (the red zone) leads to learned helplessness … and what the words ‘Faa’ and ‘Baa’ have to do with this.
