TRAINING NOTICE: HEALING DEVELOPMENTAL TRAUMA
Date/Time: Spring 2010
MAHEC, Asheville, NC
Approximate class size: 50 Maximum
Audience: Mental heath professionals including psychiatrists, pediatricians, substance abuse counselors, psychologists, social workers, family therapists, school counselors, teachers, child-care providers, early childhood educators and other interested professionals.
The content of the training is drawn from our two newest books, Healing Developmental Trauma and Conflict Resolution: The Partnership Way. The training will provide skill-building activities related to the seven different types of therapeutic interventions utilized in DPW.
Developmental Traumais a new diagnostic term that describes subtle and seemingly ordinary or normal relational childhood experiences that most adults do not recognize nor perceive as having had traumatic effects on them as a child. These ordinary relational events, which can begin before birth and extend through the first three years of life, involve a loss of attunement between them and their parents particularly with their mothers. These energetic disconnects create Developmental Trauma that mold the development of the Internal Working Modal of Reality. Unrecognized and untreated Developmental Trauma create addictive behavior patterns, physical and mental health disorders, distorted beliefs, intra-psychic splits, disturbances or distortions in relationship dynamics and intractable conflicts.
Developmental Process Work is based on principles from the field of epigenetics, a new biological science that emphasizes environmental nurture rather than genetic nature as the primary force in evolution. Because it includes both psychological and energetic interventions, they believe DPW fills an important gap in the field of Energy Psychology.
