6060 Sunrise Vista Drive #1110-E, Citrus Heights, CA 95610

5.5 CEU’s, $45.00

Join international trauma expert and author, Peter A. Levine, Ph.D. to learn how sensation-based treatment (as opposed to emotional or rational-based treatment) can be effective for trauma treatment. He will discuss the important principles in successful trauma treatment, and use his own successful renegotiation of a personal traumatic event as an example. Representing the full scope of his life’s work and discovery, Dr. Levine will discuss the evolutionary underpinnings of trauma. The day will include an in-depth review of how trauma is related to the ethnological concept of tonic immobility, the importance of the so-called “primitive” Vagus system, and how its connections through the viscera and body are a key ally in trauma therapy. Objectives: Articulate the four major developmental stages that increase vulnerability to trauma and how to recognize them in your clients. Determine the naturalistic mechanics of trauma and survival responses of flight, fight, freeze and collapse as it relates to clinical treatment. Discover the evolutionary underpinnings of trauma and the Polyvagal theory and their clinical implications. Demonstrate the importance of “Bottom-Up” processing versus “Top Down” processing to improve treatment outcomes. Analyze the effects of stress on somatic and emotional syndromes in clients. Incorporate Dr. Levine’s simple containment tools in order to more effectively engage your client in trauma therapy. He also presents areas of; Child Development: The Signs of Trauma in Each Developmental Period; The Naturalistic Mechanisms of Trauma; Understanding our primary survival tactics and how they play out in the body: Flight, fight, freeze and collapse; Traumatic Reactions; Spirituality and Trauma.

This training will be an interactive overview of key sections of Title 9, Chapter 3 that directly relates to DUI program administration, management, and direct client services. This training will promote real life scenarios with examples of successful implementation of regulation. Through the review of Title 9 the attendees can assess their procedures for compliance with regulations and identify areas for enhancement of program services.

The BSP Phase 2 Live Video training will be facilitated by Dr. David Grand.  It will include an extensive review of Outside/Inside Window with an emphasis on how to clinically interact with clients during Brainspotting. We will then learn refinements of the process including how and when to titrate activation up or down. You will be learn several  important new 3 Dimensional Brainspotting concepts using the “Z-Axis” of Brainspotting close and far and Convergence Therapy which expands the Z-Axis to activate the vagus nerve through the ocularcardiac reflex. Additional technical refinements will be presented including “Rolling Brainspotting,” with slow eye tracking stopping briefly on each Brainspot, “Selfspotting” which allows vulnerable clients to locate their own Brainspots and Body Gridwork which is a method to identify, interconnect and release spots in the body holding pain and stress.  Some of the objectives are:  live demonstration and attendees understand how to; Review components taught in Brainspotting (Outside and Inside Window), define Frame and Focus Brainspotting Diagnosis and Treatment, demonstrate 3 Dimensional Z-Axis and convergence Therapy, sefine and demonstrate Rolling Brainspotting, Selfspotting and Body Gridwork, will be introduced to several important applications. This includes One-Eye Brainspotting, the “Z-Axis” of Brainspotting close and far, this includes Convergence Therapy which expands the Z-Axis to activate the vagus nerve through the ocular cardiac reflex and more.

Cost is $70.00 and admin/paypal fee of $5.00.

You will earn 7’s but you must on time, complete all of the require hours for the CEU certificate.

The CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect and household challenges and later-life health and well-being. The original ACE Study was conducted at Kaiser Permanente from 1995 to 1997 with two waves of data collection.

Once we understand how the past can spill into the present, and how a tough childhood can become a tumultuous, challenging adulthood, we have a new possibility of healing. As one interviewee in my new book, Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology, and How You Can Heal, said when she learned about adverse childhood experiences for the first time, “Now I understand why I’ve felt all my life as if I’ve been trying to dance without hearing any music.” Suddenly, she felt the possibility that by taking steps to heal from the emotional wounds of the past she might find a new layer of healing in the present.

Cutting-edge research tells us that experiencing childhood emotional trauma can play a large role in whether we develop physical disease in adulthood. In Part 1 of this series we looked at the growing scientific link between childhood adversity and adult physical disease. This research tells us that what doesn’t kill you doesn’t necessarily make you stronger; far more often, the opposite is true.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)—which include emotional or physical neglect; verbal humiliation; growing up with a family member who is addicted to alcohol or some other substance, or who is depressed or has other mental illness; and parental abandonment, divorce, or loss — can harm developing brains, predisposing them to autoimmune disease, heart disease, cancer, depression, and a number of other chronic conditions, decades after the trauma took place.

Recognizing that chronic childhood stress can play a role—along with genetics and other factors—in developing adult illnesses and relationship challenges, can be enormously freeing. If you have been wondering why you’ve been struggling a little too hard for a little too long with your emotional and physical well-being —feeling as if you’ve been swimming against some invisible current that never ceases — this “aha” can come as a welcome relief. Finally, you can begin to see the current and understand how it’s been working steadily against you all of your life.
