The toxic stress that results from trauma often negatively influences brain development and attachment systems, and can greatly impact individuals and societies. This CE course was developed based onmost recent book on body/mind trauma and healing and draws on more than 30 years of research and clinical practice to show how the terror and isolation that is at the core of trauma literally reshapes both the brain and body. New insights into our survival instincts explain why traumatized people experience incomprehensible anxiety and numbing as well as intolerable rage, and how trauma affects their capacity to concentrate, to remember, to form trusting relationships, and even to feel at home in their own bodies.
