This workshop reaches beyond typical Trauma-Informed Practice or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) education by providing essential preliminary neurobiologically-based tools for physicians who have already learned about the importance of ACEs, so that they may have a better understanding of what could be done next, how to do it, and what the neurobiological bases for those recommendations might be. We will use the ACE Questionnaire to introduce important aspects of Complex Trauma (aka Complex PTSD) that are little known among physicians, yet indispensable for proper interpretation of ACE scores, or improving one’s ability to care for or work with trauma survivors. We will also begin exploring techniques for healing trauma. In particular, skills that can be applied during difficult encounters with trauma survivors will be demonstrated and reviewed using practical, point-of-care mindfulness and mentalization tools developed through an understanding of the neurobiology of trauma. This workshop is aimed at providing exposure to an initial skill set required to work more effectively with survivors in their quest to “heal past the cycle of trauma”. ........... Participants will be on their own for lunch.
