Trauma can have a profound impact on the mind-brain-body relationship, frequently leaving lasting imprints on both emotional/cognitive and somatic domains of the sense of self. Emerging neuroscience research is beginning to shed light how somatic sensory processing, a key process underlying how the physical body exists and relates to physical space, plays a critical role in how we regulate ourselves in interact with the world around us.

These functions are often impaired in the aftermath of trauma, where indi-viduals feel not only estranged from their bodies but also lack a sense of purpose and the capacity for agency. How can we work with the trauma-tized self to restore the sense of self at an emotional/cognitive and somatic level to reunite brain, mind, and body?

This evening class will describe an integrative, neuro-scientifically-guided approach to facilitate a mind-body connection that was, or was not ever, there before, thereby laying the foundation for the restoration of an embod-ied self that is capable of feeling fully alive in the aftermath of trauma.
