The Brain on Trauma: Understanding Violence’s Consequences on our Mind, Body, and Community

October 22, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Trans and non-binary people experience bullying, harassment, abuse, assault and hate violence at alarmingly high rates.  Living through traumatic experiences doesn’t mean people have an understanding of how these experiences impact daily life. This workshop will translate the characteristics and complexity of short and long term traumatic responses into user-friendly language, allowing attendees to recognize the signs of trauma in their own life and in others’.  Tools, skills, and interactive exercises will allow participants to identify where (and how) they can make healthy changes to minimize the overt and covert invasiveness of trauma in their day-to-day lives.
