Mindfulness for Trauma-Based Emotional Dysregulation

Mindfulness is an excellent tool to support recovery from trauma; including resilience, self-compassion, presentness and learning to self-regulate mood variations. Meditation is a natural, powerful method of healing supporting the recovery process.

Key Program Information
Series Mindfulness in the Clinical Setting
Delivery Format Online

Autonomic dysregulation, damage to the brain and body’s stress response system, has been linked as the foundation of PTSD. The nervous system is unable to establish a healthy sense of balance and resilience, so the client's body and mind stay in a state of irritability and anxiety. 

During this webinar, you will navigate the nature of trauma and the tools that can best help your clients who suffer from this condition. You will learn how to teach your clients how to use mindfulness to avoid being re-triggered. When your clients learn to pay attention to their body sensations, they will increase their capacity to regulate their nervous system. 

What will be discussed:

  • Discover useful tools to support recovery from trauma
  • Learn skills to teach your clients how to avoid re-triggering events and experiences 
  • Learn to teach your clients to listen to the sensations of the body

This webinar is a convenient and affordable way to earn continuing education contact hours to fulfill your license and certification requirements from a location of your choice.
