Join Linda Curran for the full one-on-one interview with trauma expert, Babette Rothschild. Author of more than a handful of books in the field of traumatic stress, Rothschild offers clinicians the benefit of her years in the field of Somatic Psychotherapy. With the emphasis on methods for Safety and Stabilization - including dual awareness and her patented “putting on the brakes” - Rothschild takes clinicians through the “how to” and “how not to” of trauma treatment. According to Rothschild, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is an indicator that the body and mind have not yet recognized that a traumatic event is over. As a result, the body’s nervous system continues to mobilize the muscles and other body systems of defense (fight/flight) and/or numbing (freeze). Rothschild explains the role of interoceptive and exteroceptive cues; instructs clinicians on teaching clients to accurately appraise his/her current (vs.past) danger; and explicates a coherent psychophysical theory of trauma and its sequellae.
- Describe the functioning of autonomic nervous system-hyperarousal, stress, trauma, and post-traumatic stress disorder
- Explain the necessity for clients' development of the capacity for "Dual Awareness", mindfulness and an observing self
- Describe the psychophysical theory of trauma
- Describe the principles and tools for reducing, containing and halting traumatic hyperarousal ("putting on the brakes")
