Complex and Acute Trauma: Understanding a Spiritual and Neurological Approach (click here for more)

5/11/2018 - 9:00am to 4:30pm CDT
Laure will show a direct link between previous unresolved trauma and its symptoms, to how clients behave in relationship. Specifically, how attachment trauma interferes with early brain development and one's sense of safety in the body, mind, and spirit. Learn how a spiritual and neurological therapeutic approach promotes  re-establishing the client's sense of trust in her/himself and how they experience others and the world." To register please click HERE.

  • The definitions of acute and complex trauma, and explicit and implicit memory.
  • How the early brain develops and why we need to know this as clinicians.
  • The mental, spiritual, and physical client symptoms of unresolved trauma and attachment interruptions
  • The beliefs systems or schema client implement to safe guard against future relationship breaks
  • How beliefs about self, others, and the world become concretized in early development and attachment due to brain development (concrete thinking and limbic system over functioning)
  • How discovering and trusting one’s truest nature and deepest personal knowing is key to changing incongruent behavior and reduce the need for safe guarding.
  • Ways to interrupt old patterns of belief through right hemisphere therapy modalities and somatic experiencing.

This workshop is led by Laure Schwartz, MA, LPC. Laure Schwartz is a psychotherapist and spiritual director at The Healing House of Saint Paul. She is also trained in somatic experiencing, a trauma recovery therapy based upon the nervous system and one’s natural ability to heal.
