After traumatic experiences it is common for the nervous system to get stuck in a hyper aroused and/or hypo aroused state leading to multiple difficulties including relaxation, concentration, focus, sleep, emotion regulation and orientation to time and place. Dysregulation in the nervous system can compound over time as people try to cope with associated distress by avoiding or self-medicating.

This presentation introduces participants to the concepts of hyper and hypo arousal in the nervous system as well as how to effectively teach clients to regulate from a hyper or hypo aroused state. Participants will directly experience these skills as well as taking away tools for teaching them effectively to their clients.



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
