International trauma expert and author, Peter A. Levine, Ph.D. will teach you how sensation-based treatment (as opposed to emotional or rational-based treatment) can be effective for trauma treatment. He discusses the important principles in successful trauma treatment, and uses his own successful renegotiation of a personal traumatic event as an example.
Representing the full scope of his life’s work, Dr. Levine discusses the evolutionary underpinnings of trauma. This recording includes an in-depth review of how trauma is related to the ethnological concept of tonic immobility, as well as the roadmap of the Polyvagal system – a fascinating neurophysiological model for understanding how we shift between the states of fight-or-flight, shutdown, and social engagement. Dr. Levine provides simple containment tools to help you develop your awareness of these state changes in order to more effectively engage your client in trauma therapy.
