This workshop will present information that is relevant to everyone who is involved in counseling, including psychologists, licensed professional counselors, marriage & family counselors, school counselors, and educators.

About the Workshop

What brain challenges do adolescents and trauma survivors of all ages have in common?  In both groups, the prefrontal cortex– and the executive functioning it affords us– is compromised. That is, adolescents and trauma survivors struggle with various aspects of cognitive and emotional control.  Come learn about these brain changes, about the Window of Tolerance, and some simple practices that can help us all, when necessary, regain cognitive and emotional control.

Workshop Replay Video

The video replay of the workshop will be available only to those who registered to attend the event.  The replay video will be available for 30 days after the live workshop event.
