Neuroscience and Trauma Therapy with Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D.



The recent developments in neuroscience have given us new insights into how trauma impacts the development of the brain, and reorganized how the brain deals with input from its surroundings.
 
Join world trauma expert and leading authority Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D. and hear how these findings support a range of new approaches to trauma treatment that until now have not been taught in graduate schools, such as:
 
  • Affect regulation
  • Memory processing
  • Disturbances in sensori-motor integration
 
By understanding the impact of trauma on the brain it forces us to reconsider our therapeutic paradigms.  Dr. van der Kolk will examine multiple areas in this high-impact 90-minute event.

M.D.


Bessel A. Van der Kolk, M.D., is a clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of post-traumatic stress.  His work integrates developmental, neurobiological, psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

Dr. van der Kolk and his various collaborators have published extensively on the impact of trauma on development, such as dissociative problems, borderline personality and self-mutilation, cognitive development, memory, and the psychobiology of trauma.  He has published over 150 peer reviewed scientific articles on such diverse topics as neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, yoga, theater and EMDR. 

He is founder and medical director of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts.  The Trauma Center consists 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.  He also created the Trauma Research Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Trauma Center, that is organized to promote clinical, scientific and educational projects.

His most recent 2014 New York Times best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma, transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring – specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust.  He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, somatically based therapies, EMDR, psychodrama, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Dr. van der Kolk is the past president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and professor of psychiatry at Boston University Medical School.  He regularly teaches at conferences, universities, and hospitals around the world.
