The brain is important, but . . .
Why is understanding the body important to trauma therapy?
With so much focus on the psychological consequences of trauma, we may forget that trauma also affects the body just as much as it affects the mind.
After all, the body is generally the first place impacted by trauma.
Find out the “experiments” you can do with people to help them discover the meanings behind their body patterns during NICABM’s free webinar with Pat Ogden, PhD.
