Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute offers Free Webinar

Webinar with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk Wednesday, June 6th 

Dear Colleague,

 For every soldier returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with symptoms of depression or PTSD, there are about thirty children in the US who are traumatized by exposure to family violence and sexual abuse. I know it's quite the shocking statistic.  Actually, many experts believe that 10% of our population will never become productive members of our society unless we begin researching effective methods for treating childhood trauma. That's why I wanted to let you know about an upcoming free webinar with Bessel van der Kolk, MD, an expert on how trauma affects the mind and body and a member of SPI's advisory board.  It's part of NICABM's Trauma Therapy webinar series. Dr. van der Kolk will give you insight into the four components of effective trauma treatment and he'll highlight some common mistakes practitioners make. It's free to watch, along with the rest of the Trauma Therapy series - you just have to sign up. If you can make it, I really think it would be worth your while. Or, you can get a Gold Membership for access to the video recordings, audio recordings and transcripts for the entire series as well as possible CE/CME credits. I hope you'll take a moment to check it out right here. Sincerely, Pat PS The free webinar with Bessel van der Kolk, MD is coming up on Wednesday night. Here's the link where you can sign up.   Pat Ogden, Ph.D.
