How Trauma Affects the Body: The Psychosomatic Nature of Trauma

About How Trauma Affects the Body: The Psychosomatic Nature of Trauma

Trauma and its related symptoms are not all ‘just in your head’! Recent studies indicate that the effects of trauma on the body are often overlooked. Undergoing traumatic stress greatly impacts the body: trauma not only significantly affects most psychological processes, but also your overall health, leading to the development of disease and even altering your lifespan. Join neuroscientist Dr Megan Klabunde in this illuminating talk and examine the latest research on trauma and the body. We will delve into the physiological and neuro-anatomy underlying stress and trauma, ranging from the vagus nerve to the prefrontal cortex of the brain. Explore the science behind the development of new and effective treatments, and uncover how your body may be a key factor in reducing the effects of stress and trauma.

Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm - come down early to grab a good seat!
