The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk M.D. -  In "The Body Keeps the Score, Bessel van der Kolk M.D. uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity."

About the presentation:

Therapists in training experience frequent exposure to traumatic material during both coursework and clinical work. This exposure, especially when combined with the many other stressors of graduate school, can result in emotional, health, and relational problems. Both students and their supervisors in training would benefit from incorporating safeguards for students based on the most recent research findings.

This presentation will provide a review of the most recent research on psychology/social work graduate student responses to trauma exposure, bring greater awareness to graduate students' vulnerabilities to vicarious traumatization and provide direction for building resilience as a novice psychotherapist.

While no traumatic material will be presented, attendees may experience some discomfort at recognizing, in their own lives, current effects of trauma exposure.
