Right Hemisphere Dominance in Psychotherapy: Art Therapy Treatment for Developmental Trauma
1:00pm - 4:00pm
3 CEUs available
Recent studies of the right brain demonstrate that right brain processes lie at the core of psychotherapeutic change. This workshop will offer a model of treatment developed by the presenter to treat chronic developmental post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The art therapy based treatment model is based on the most recent neurobiology, attachment and PTSD science, and is comprised of four stages of treatment to reform the neural structures compromised by trauma and neglect, to foster emotional and behavioral regulation, and develop empathy and compassion for others.
Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with art media and role play to better understand the role of the right brain in healing. No art experience is required, and all art sessions are designed to be safe, personal, and enjoyable.
