Challenging times can be traumatizing, and can stir up old and chronic traumatic states. This webinar covers the identification and treatment of traumatic responses to current cultural distresses. We'll start with the COVID-19 pandemic, identifying the losses and anxieties that have come up for nearly anyone, and how to name them, be present with them, and move them through with EMDR and other techniques.
Then we cover politics, racism, homophobia, the environment, and the financial divide; ferreting out and helping heal traumatic experiences and emotions, no matter where people are by identities and politics. We cover coping with trauma and anxiety (mobilization), hopelessness (immobilization), and adding tools that sustain both clients and the therapists that treat them.
