You are invited to two events at AUT featuring world-renowned trauma specialist Bessel van der Kolk. Besssel will be presenting a day-long seminar and a shorter evening talk.

The Body Keeps the Score

Recent developments in therapeutic modalities for the treatment of trauma, with an emphasis on current findings from neurobiology.

Trauma keeps being replayed inside the theatre of the body. Awareness of physical sensations forms the very foundation of human consciousness. Recovery from trauma involves learning how to restore a sense of visceral safety and reclaiming a loving relationship with ones's self. Body centred therapeutic approaches help people come into the present moment and shift out of fear, numbing and hyperarousal. This allows them to resolve tramatic memories, promote mastery over the post-traumatic legacy of constriction, disconnection, and loss, and reclaim authority over their lives.
