Dear students,

I am forwarding information regarding two conferences on the topic of Trauma that may be of interest to you.  Please see below for more information and details on registration.


Trauma and the Sense of Self
with Bessel van der Kolk
Saturday, March 1, 2014
9:00am - 5:00pm

Psychological trauma causes significant damage to self-organization and perception, which is reflected in measurable alterations in brain function and structure. As a result, survivors lose the capacity to render experience in words, endure unrelenting hyper- and hypo-arousal, and lose a sense of continuous inner presence and abiding calm.

This workshop will allow ample time for the group to discuss with Bessel van der Kolk how his neurobiological perspective can be used to shape our clinical stance and interventions. Bessel will talk with us about specific changes in organization of self and perception that result from severe trauma, abuse and neglect. At the cutting edge of research in trauma, we will examine measurable alterations of brain function and structure - as well as specific clinical interventions that may reverse or compensate for such alterations.

$150 General Admission
$100 Candidates & Students

Core Priniciples of Trauma Informed Care: The Essentials
May 15, 2014
9:00am - 3:30pm
NYU Kimmel Center for University Life
60 Washington Square South
New York, NY 10012

Understanding the effects of trauma on individuals, groups, and communities is a key factor in delivering effective social work services.&nbsp; Research indicates that trauma, both psychological and physical, plays a significant part in the development of certain other disorders and health problems. As more attention has been paid to the occurrence of trauma, the field of trauma research has grown substantially. Areas such as neurobiology and evidence-based practice (EBP)/evidence-informed care have become key focal points. It is therefore important that contemporary social workers and those working in mental health and other health-related fields obtain a comprehensive understanding of trauma and continue to keep abreast of continuing developments in the trauma field.

This full-day conference is the first in an ongoing workshop series about evidence-based trauma treatments. The program will expose participants to the essentials of trauma, including: defining trauma and trauma in the recovery process; examining the neurobiological implications of trauma; exploring EBP and emerging interventions; and looking at aspects of evidence-informed care in different populations. Through this conference, participants will gain core knowledge on which to build a deeper understanding of the effects of trauma and how to work with those who have experienced traumatic life events.
