Restoring a sense of self is critically important in recovering from trauma. Body-centered activities like deep breathing exercises help us regulate our internal states and restore and repair the connection between our minds and our bodies. In this video, Dr. van der Kolk introduces us to the concept of deep breathing as a practice to activate the neural pathway that allows us to access our internal experience.

Integrated Attachment Family Therapy Training

Children who feel hurt and angry disconnect from their parents - parents who sense that disconnect feel discouraged when their child-rearing approaches aren’t working. Even when parents attempt to improve their relationship through parent-child therapies, they may find that the interventions focus on improving behaviors without considering the core issues underneath: attachment and trauma.

This workshop offers a different lens that focuses on the physiologic, nonverbal connection between parent and child to improve the relationship. Using principles from two attachment-based modalities---Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Theraplay---learn how to enhance regulation, connection, and joy between parents and children as well as guide parents to do reparative work around family trauma.

Encarnar La Sabiduria Curativa con Richard Schwartz

La Terapia de Sistemas Familiares Internos (IFS) proporciona un modelo innovador para que los profesionales de la salud mental aprendan sobre la transformación, adoptando un enfoque eficaz y compasivo de las partes de los pacientes/clientes que están atrapados en patrones reactivos y les impiden vivir la mejor vida.

Desarrollado por Richard Schwartz, PhD, IFS se basa en el pensamiento sistémico con la visión de que la mente está formada por subpersonalidades relativamente discretas, cada una con su propio punto de vista y cualidades. Es importante destacar que IFS también ve a las personas como un todo debajo de esta colección de partes, el verdadero Ser.
