Trauma Havening: A Psycho-Sensory Method Of Treating Trauma

Instructor: Dr. Ron Ruden | Saturday & Sunday 9:00am - 5:00pm| Oct. 5, 6 | $250 | Course Code: SWTRHA

When an event or experience is perceived as traumatic or very stressful, it becomes immutably encoded, often with life altering consequences. However, recent research from the field of neuroscience has shown that it's possible to modify this encoding. In this course, Dr. Ronald Ruden, applies his research in the neurosciences to disorders that arise from dysregulated brain function.

The Havening technique uses the sensory input of human touch as a therapeutic tool to help in the treatment of emotional and physical distress. Open to social workers, psychologists, nurses, MDs, and other licensed helping professions.

Course Highlights:

  • Gain an understanding of a powerful method for the treatment of trauma-related disorders such as PTSD, pathological emotions,and phobias.
  • Learn about Trauma Havening from its neurobiological roots to its clinical applications.
