SATURDAY SEMINAR:

Neuroscience research has demonstrated that traumatic memories often become disconnected from the language centers of the brain, making their expression “unspeakable.” Experiential approaches that rely on embodiment and the creation of alternative pathways of expression have therefore been recognized as treatments of choice for those suffering the impact of trauma, as they facilitate the transition between verbal and nonverbal modes of processing.
