This looks great.  Having access to this kind of training is so important, if we are to assist those who have been so deeply wounded by their experiences of exploitation and captivity.

On some level, I hope the day comes when the headline for this kind of training could read: "Trauma and we Human Beings."

As trauma therapists, we do focus on deeper brain structures - limbic, midbrain and brainstem - as well as on the autonomic nervous system.  But we are also in our hearts and in our bodies.  At its best, trauma therapy is a deeply human encounter, just as trauma is a deeply human experience, and much of these experience exist outside of the brain and in much larger embodied and interpersonal frameworks.
