The Body Keeps the Score:
Trauma, Attachment and Neuroscience

We will look at the difference between disrupted attachment and traumatic stress and focus on the fundamental difference between trauma de-sensitization vs. integration and growth. Bessel will be supported by somatic educator Licia Sky in this workshop.
