Monday, February 13th

6:00 PM EST – 8:00 PM EST


When thinking about trauma, we often think of symptoms such as hyper-vigilance and behavioral avoidance. But where do these symptoms stem from? 

The brain plays a critical role in the development of trauma throughout a person’s lifespan. And as a clinician, understanding the role of the brain in trauma development is essential for providing effective support to your clients.

In this workshop, expert speaker Diane Bigler, LCSW, will present a basic overview of neuroscience that explores the relationship between trauma and the brain. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of how the brain contributes to the development of trauma, along with the general characteristics of a trauma response. And you’ll leave this training with several brain-based approaches for supporting clients with trauma to enhance your skills as a clinician.


  • Identify key parts of the brain responsible for trauma development
  • Formulate an understanding of typical trauma responses.
  • Discover brain-based interventions for supporting clients with trauma.

Presentation will be posted soon
