Finding a Future After Trauma
How to Use the Whole Brain to Create New Beginnings
Trauma cannot be boxed in and it manifests in many and varied forms. Different people experience trauma differently and It carries many different things meanings. Each of us perceives and deals with trauma in our own specific way and experiences it differently in our bodies. Despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles trauma brings, there is hope for dealing with it effectively.
In this workshop we will explore:
- The brain and trauma
- Examples of different thinking preferences when dealing with trauma – from the book “Magic Happens when you move: the life stories of 10 ordinary and brave amputees”
- How to use the 8 dimensions of the brain to deal with trauma and create new beginnings!
- A toolbox of hope: ways to deal with and support someone going through a trauma
