About The Workshop

Learn from the Latest Research
Recent advances from studies on trauma, attachment, and neuroscience have converged to offer helpful insights for the process of healing and recovery from trauma, chronic stress, and dysfunctional relationships. This workshop draws on the emerging findings from Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment Theory, and traumatology to establish a holistic perspective for healthy psychological functioning. Attendees will acquire an integrative framework for social, emotional, and spiritual problems, with an emphasis on understanding the dynamics of trauma and complex trauma.
