 Trauma, Connection and Recovery

Traumatic events can shatter a person’s sense of connection and belonging. Many who have suffered serious trauma safeguard themselves by disconnecting from their bodies, from themselves and from relationships with others. Supporting reconnection of mind and body, and building strengths, resources and resiliency is crucial for recovery. Recent physiological and psychological researches emphasise social engagement, connection and safety as essential aspects of recovery, affirming Adler’s psychology that identifies positive social belonging as central to wellbeing.

In this fully illustrated lecture with practical case examples, Anthea will describe the many ways trauma can result in disconnection, and also discuss specific therapeutic processes that can enable re-connection and well-being.
