Neurobiology and Neuropsychological Aspects of Trauma: Understanding Trauma and Treatment Issues (6 CEUs included)
Presented by Richard Olcese, Psy.D.
As medical technology advances, we are better able to identify and track the neuroendocrine process that takes place when an individual or group suffers trauma. This knowledge has changed our understanding of the emotional and psychological effects of trauma and how we treat patients working through trauma.
Attendees will learn:
- The neurochemical process one goes through when traumatized
- How this process can disrupt synaptic communication effecting emotions, cognition and somatic systems
- Considerations for diagnosis
- Considerations for treatment: 1) Neurobiological treatment including nutrition, supplements and medications, 2) The benefit of exercise, 3) Cognitive-behavioral interventions, 4) Self-care
The event includes a continental breakfast, buffet luncheon, and 6 CEUs.
