How the body remembers trauma
Memory is comprised of the encoding, storage, and retrieval of information gathered from the communication network of the body's nervous system. Traumatic memory can go awry when communication between brain and nervous system become short circuited. In this workshop, theoretical lecture and simple exercises will inform participants on how the brain and body communicate to form normal and traumatic memories. Participants will have the opportunity to: learn the difference between explicit and implicit memory; became familiar with physiology of memory; participate in direct, non-touch, experience of somatic memory; become able to apply theory to practice for use wlth EMDR.
