Description

Clients are desperately trying to make sense of their symptoms of depression, free-floating anxiety, addictive behaviors, dysregulated emotions, physiological arousal, and seemingly unrelated medical issues. They look to you to create an understanding, provide an accurate diagnosis, and layout an effective treatment approach; however, you find that you can’t without understanding and addressing their “why”. The science is clear and overwhelming about the lasting effects of adverse childhood experiences, developmental trauma, and attachment wounds.

In this video, you will learn key insights regarding the neuroscience of addiction from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect, and the impact on later-life health and well-being. You will understand the important assessment and treatment implications from neuroscience that show us addiction is experience dependent, not substance dependent.

You will learn treatment recommendations from the leading experts in trauma and addictions treatment including:

  • Bessel A van der Kolk, MD, New York Times best-selling author and the world’s leading expert on psychological trauma
  • Vincent Felitti, MD, co-principal investigator of the ACE Study
  • Louis John Cozolino, PhD
  • Lance Dodes, MD
  • Lisa Ferentz, LCSW-C, DAPA
  • Jim Hopper, PhD
  • Gabor Maté, MD
  • Lane Pederson, PsyD, LP, DBTC
  • Mary Lou Schack, PhD
Fusing research and theory about attachment and complex developmental trauma, these experts provide invaluable insight that informs our therapy, including:
  • The therapeutic alliance, along with all its inherent challenges with boundaries and clinical enactments
  • The use of contemplative practices for changing the brain
  • Teaching skills for self-regulation
  • Evidence-based modalities for both stabilization and processing traumatic material

These experts help illustrate how your clients do not get over or grow out of childhood trauma. These painful experiences, when left unrecognized or untreated, continue to impact us throughout our lifetime; however, with this new insight you can finally say to your client:

Your behavior absolutely makes sense and here’s what neuroscience and the ACE Study tells us about the association between your experiences as a child and your struggles as an adult.

Featuring-Linda Curran, BCPC, LPC, CACD, CCDP-D, a trauma specialist, veteran clinician, and best-selling author of Trauma Competency: A Clinicians Guide and 101 Trauma-Informed Interventions. Linda has collaborated with the world’s leaders in trauma, including Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., to develop best-selling DVDs and books covering all aspects of psychological trauma, including three video projects for The Master Clinician Series: Trauma Treatment: Psychotherapy for the 21st Century; Power Therapies: EMDR and Beyond; and Evidence-Based Treatments for PTSD.

Bessel A. van der Kolk Related seminars and products: 21

M.D.


Bessel van der Kolk MD has spent his career studying how children and adults adapt to traumatic experiences, and has translated emerging findings from neuroscience and attachment research to develop and study a range of potentially effective treatments for traumatic stress in children and adults.


In 1984, he set up one of the first clinical/research centers in the US dedicated to study and treatment of traumatic stress in civilian populations, which has trained numerous researchers and clinicians specializing in the study and treatment of traumatic stress, and which has been continually funded to research the impact of traumatic stress and effective treatment interventions. He did the first studies on the effects of SSRIs on PTSD; was a member of the first neuroimaging team to investigate how trauma changes brain processes, and did the first research linking BPD and deliberate self-injury to trauma and neglect in early childhood.


Much of his research has focused on how trauma has a different impact at different stages of development, and that disruptions in care-giving systems have additional deleterious effects that need to be addressed for effective intervention. In order to promote a deeper understanding of the impact of childhood trauma and to foster the development and execution of effective treatment interventions, he initiated the process that led to the establishment of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), a Congressionally mandated initiative that now funds approximately 150 centers specializing in developing effective treatment interventions, and implementing them in a wide array of settings, from juvenile detention centers to tribal agencies, nationwide.


He has focused on studying treatments that stabilize physiology, increase executive functioning and help traumatized individuals to feel fully alert to the present. This has included an NIMH funded study on EMDR and NCCAM funded study of yoga, and, in recent years, the study of neurofeedback to investigate whether attentional and perceptual systems (and the neural tracks responsible for them) can be altered by changing EEG patterns.


His efforts resulted in the establishment of Trauma Center, that consist of a well-trained clinical team specializing in the treatment of children and adults with histories of child maltreatment, that applies treatment models that are widely taught and implemented nationwide, a research lab that studies the effects of neurofeedback and MDMA on behavior, mood, and executive functioning, and numerous trainings nationwide to a variety of mental health professional, educators, parent groups, policy makers, and law enforcement personnel.


Dr. van der Kolk is the author of the NY Times best-selling book The Body Keeps The Score.
