2 pm ET / 12 pm MT / 11 am PT

A rare opportunity to Learn From dr. Peter Levine LIVE

In this FREE, 90-minute live training class, we’ll cover…

1

How to Recognize and Identify Insecure Attachment Patterning

Dr. Levine and Dr. Heller discuss why attachment injury is inherent to all complex trauma––and what happens to our bodies (and emotions) when the fight, flight, freeze or fawn threat response persists into adulthood.

2

Why Complex Traumas Form and Manifest in the Body

Trauma-informed care means we need to have a basic understanding of how common traumatic stress responses remain stored in the body. We’ll review the relationship between bodily symptoms and emotions––and how locked trauma can be released to restore secure attachment and promote post-traumatic growth and resilience.

3

Clinical Tools to Support Clients with Complex Trauma

The body talks––but do we know how to listen? Dr. Levine will guide us through short examples of client demonstration sessions where he introduces body-based interventions that can be easily integrated with almost any therapeutic modality.

“Every modality can and should employ Somatic Experiencing and Dynamic Attachment Repatterning to help deactivate the myriad of possible traumas that occur in the world.”

What is the relationship between Attachment & Complex Trauma?

As therapists, how can we support clients suffering from complex trauma?

Complex trauma is often rooted in unresolved experiences from the past, where memories feel like they’re happening “in the now”––making it particularly difficult to engage the logical mind when the body remains dysregulated.

If the brain can’t find a way to down-regulate this automatic response, the brain can get trapped in a “default setting,” where it continues to repeat the same unhealthy responses and patterns time and again.

For your clients with complex trauma rooted in attachment injury, it can feel like they’re on high alert 24-7-365.

The truth is, traumatic experiences that happen during our formative years leave an imprint on the body and mind that can be difficult to sort out—or even articulate.

Even as therapists, it’s not easy to know what to look for.

The good news is that, no matter how complex the trauma, repair is possible.

Complex trauma can be demystified when you know how to pick up on subtle, nonverbal clues that reveal where there is work to be done and what is needed to move forward.

With the right tools and techniques, you can detect physical and behavioral signs of attachment injury embedded in complex trauma.

Every one of us can tap into the body’s wisdom and unlock a greater capacity for healing.

In this LIVE Expert Spotlight training, Dr. Levine will explore physical ways of releasing complex trauma

With a deeper understanding of how complex trauma forms—and how our systems become dysregulated as a result––we can apply body-based attachment techniques to help our clients restore secure attachment and find long-lasting, effective relief from physical and psychological distress.

About Your Hosts

Our physiology convinces us of our emotions. The very foundation of a healthy psyche and body––our capacity to feel safe––is undermined by the foe of trauma. If our bodies are stuck in survival mode, our emotions and feelings turn our attentions obsessively toward seeking safety.

Peter A Levine, PhD, is the developer of Somatic Experiencing®, a naturalistic and neurobiological approach to healing trauma, which he has developed over the past 50 years.

He is the Founder of the Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute/Foundation for Human Enrichment and the Founder and President of the Ergos Institute of Somatic Education™. His work has been taught to over 50,000 therapists in over 45 countries.

Dr. Levine served as a stress consultant for NASA in the early space shuttle development and has served on the American Psychological Association task force for responding to the trauma of large-scale disasters and ethno-political warfare.

He holds doctorates in both Biophysics and Psychology and is the author of several best-selling books on trauma, including Waking the Tiger, which is published in over 29 languages. He is currently a Senior Fellow and consultant at The Meadows Addiction and Trauma Treatment Center in Wickenburg, Arizona and continues to teach trauma healing workshops internationally.

The type of regulating environment we receive as young children influences how we see the world and interact with others for our entire life. Even if our childhood is less than ideal, we can heal and change. But we can’t do it alone. We need other people.

Diane Poole Heller PhD, is an internationally recognized speaker, author, and teaching expert in the field of adult attachment theory and trauma resolution.

Her signature approach—DARe (Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning experience)—provides therapists and individuals with relevant skills and practical exercises that facilitate healing from attachment and trauma wounds.

Through various training programs, books, lectures and her own work as a clinical therapist, Dr. Heller has helped a countless number of people in their healing journey towards experiencing greater intimacy, wholeness and more fulfilling relationships.

She believes that when we heal ourselves first, we heal our families, our communities and the world as a whole.
