Description

Self and Identity in Traumatic Stress with Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D.
In this compelling one-hour session, world’s leading trauma researcher and author of the The Body Keeps the Score, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk discusses the fundamental capacities of the brain and how it learns to regulate itself, especially in trauma cases. By understanding the brain, it forces us to consider the impact of trauma on the brain, as well as our self-identity. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk will examine multiple areas in this one-hour event.

The Enduring Neurobiological Effects of Abuse and Neglect with Martin Teicher, M.D., PhD
In this session, Dr. Martin Teicher discusses his research and emphasizes how personality disorders can stem from severe childhood abuse or neglect. This session will leave you with the best understanding of how childhood maltreatment is associated with various personality disorders and what maltreatment-related alterations can be made to help and reduce distress for the effected individuals.

What the Spontaneous Activity in the Midline Regions of the Brain can Tell us about Self & Identity with Georg Northoff, M.D., PhD
In this one hour session, Dr. Georg Northoff goes into detail of how our resting state causes change to seem much harder than it is and how increased self-focus and resting state creates an abnormal balance in the brain. Dr. Georg Northoff will discuss his research and examine multiple areas of the relation between self and identity and spontaneous activity in this one-hour occurrence.

Neuroimaging the Traumatized Self with Paul Frewen, PhD, C.Psych
In this session with Dr. Paul Frewen, he discusses the neurobiological explanation of self-awareness and the states of mind of severely traumatized people. This special seminar recording represents current research findings about how people’s brains, minds and bodies are affected by traumatic experiences and illustrate the emotional states of both normal and psychopathological functioning.

In this two hour session, Dr. Georg Northoff, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, and Dr. Paul Frewen discuss what it means to be mentally healthy.

Bessel A. van der Kolk's Profile

Bessel A. van der Kolk Related seminars and products: 14

M.D.


Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D. is a clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of post-traumatic stress. His work integrates developmental, neurobiological, psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

Dr. van der Kolk and his various collaborators have published extensively on the impact of trauma on development, such as dissociative problems, borderline personality and self-mutilation, cognitive development, memory, and the psychobiology of trauma. He has published over 150 peer reviewed scientific articles on such diverse topics as neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, yoga, theater and EMDR.

He is founder and medical director of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts. The Trauma Center consists of a well-trained clinical team specializing in the treatment of children and adults with histories of child maltreatment, that applies treatment models that are widely taught and implemented nationwide.  He also created the Trauma Research Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Trauma Center, that is organized to promote clinical, scientific and educational projects.

His most recent 2014 New York Times best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma, transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, somatically based therapies, EMDR, psychodrama, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Dr. van der Kolk is the past president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and professor of psychiatry at Boston University Medical School. He regularly teaches at conferences, universities, and hospitals around the world.
