Objectives
  1. Determine how the neurological consequences of trauma can lead to resistance in therapy.
  2. Evaluate how understanding neurological processes in the brain regions impacted by psychological trauma can inform mental health professionals’ choice of therapeutic techniques.
  3. Analyze neuroscience supporting a trauma treatment sequence that starts with bottom-up techniques before moving onto techniques that target higher brain regions.
  4. Utilize sensory awareness techniques in-session to increase felt safety in clients.
  5. Assess how bilateral movement techniques can be employed in therapy to de-activate the amygdala in the stabilization phase of trauma treatment.
  6. Evaluate how therapies that integrate desensitization and exposure can be used in treatment to help clients safely process traumatic memories.
