PAIN SYNDROMES: THE HIDDEN FACE OF STRESS AND TRAUMA WITH PETER LEVINE, PHD (2.5 CE credits)
Many medical professionals, PTs, and psychotherapists attempt to chase after the individual symptoms to little avail. In this workshop we will learn how to identify the underlying stress conditions that are often the root cause of these perplexing symptoms. Once we know how to identify these stress/trauma conditions, then we can more effectively treat them by utilizing special techniques to resolve the underlying autonomic dysregulation.
During this workshop, you will learn key concepts such as: autonomic imbalance, tuning, and kindling. You will have the ability to identify the syndromes of core dysregulation, understand their underlying dynamics, and how to work with them using Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory as a guide.
