The Terrorized Self: From Neurobiology to Clinical Practice with Dr. Ruth Lanius Friday, May 21, 2021 9:00 AM-1:00 PM MST
On Friday May 21, 2021, AEDP Rocky Mountains is excited to welcome Trauma specialist Dr. Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD. for a four hour virtual seminar!
Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD, is Professor of Psychiatry and the director of the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) research unit at the University of Western Ontario. She established the Traumatic Stress Service and the Traumatic Stress Service Workplace Program, both services that specialize in the treatment and research of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and related comorbid disorders. Ruth currently holds the Harris-Woodman Chair in Mind-Body Medicine at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario. Her research interests focus on studying the neurobiology of PTSD and treatment outcome research examining various pharmacological and psychotherapeutic methods. Ruth has authored more than 100 published papers and chapters in the field of traumatic stress and is currently funded by several federal funding agencies. She regularly lectures on the topic of PTSD nationally and internationally. She has recently published a book Healing the traumatized self: consciousness, neuroscience, treatment with Paul Frewen which we talk about in the interview. About the Seminar:
Psychological trauma and childhood attachment disruptions are often associated with emotion dysregulation, altered states of consciousness, dissociation, and a perceived loss of one’s sense of self. This lecture will examine the neuroscience, and the related brain/mind/body correlations, underlying five dimensions of consciousness: time, thought, body, emotion, and intersubjectivity. The restoration of the self through the integrated experience of these five dimensions of consciousness in the aftermath of trauma will be described. Clinical case examples involving the use of mind/brain/body techniques will be utilized to illustrate relevant concepts.
VIRTUAL SPACE IS LIMITED! We will provide certificates of attendance but no formal CE's are available.
