Transcending Trauma Seminar to be Held at Grand View

December 17, 2015

Crossroads of Iowa will host their third annual community seminar: Transcending Trauma, at Grand View University on January 29, 2016.

In the USA almost one person in twelve is diagnosed with chronic PTSD, and many more live with crippling aftereffects of trauma. From the emerging Biology of Fear, this symposium explores the power of evidence-­-based psychotherapeutics, both traditional and body-­-centered, to access our astounding human resiliency. Among body-­-based regimens is EMDR, developed by Francine Shapiro, which appears to incorporate natural, rhythmic alternations across the bicameral brain to restore balance. Similarly, neuroscientist and psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk helped develop Trauma Sensitive Yoga; “the body keeps the score.” In one study more than half of the participants no longer met the criteria for PTSD after ten weeks of TSY. The ideal is a spectrum of resources to retrieve our infinite potential for healing the distressing cycles of trauma, with integration into a deeper and finer experience of life.

Both health professionals & lay individuals can expect to benefit from this seminar.
