Whole Brain Relationships: Trauma-Informed Thinking is an interactive guide for healing trauma and creating deeply satisfying relationships. Its content is based on Science of Mind practices of thought awareness, the work of Thomas Troward and his views on the autonomic nervous system, Deb Dana and the polyvagal theory, and Daniel Siegel, M.D. and Tina Bryson, PhD. and their expertise on the traumatized brain.
Emotional “flooding” is something that happens regularly in human beings when they are upset, feel misunderstood, or have suffered trauma. It is also a frequent occurrence in caregivers, partners, parents, or loved ones—a form of PTSD that happens as a result of compassion fatigue, exhaustion, and despair. Teaching caregivers how to see these floods as signals from their child’s (or partner or self’s) brain instead of manipulative or intentional bad behavior, is a heart-centered transformation for many people.
Learning new ways to recognize these signals and then create communication tools for individuals and families is a powerful, highly bonding experience that can positively impact self-esteem and self-efficacy in profound ways. “You mean you really do care about me?” is a frequent question children and adults say about their family members when signals are understood and compassion reigns.
Takeaways from the workshop:
  • A new appreciation for the autonomic nervous system
  • Learn what happens to the human brain when upset
  • Develop new ways to recognize upset in yourself and others
  • Two skills: connect and redirect and “name it to tame it”
