The Trauma Cure - A Relational Approach to Recovery
At this point in time, the world is existing in a 'state of trauma'. Living through and beyond Covid-19 and the mental health, post-pandemic has shed light on issues that have been buried beneath the surface for years. Trauma is becoming a buzzword. But what is trauma? How does it arise in individuals, families, and communities? And how do we treat it at each of these levels?
In this compelling session, Natalia will answer all these questions, drawing on modern trauma neurophysiology, interpersonal neurobiology, and more importantly her years of experience working in the field with clients who have survived inhuman experiences of abuse/violation and neglect. Audiences will come to understand that relationship is most often the root of trauma; as well as the remedy or cure and leave inspired to start harnessing their capacity to ignite relational change.
