Trauma, Dissociation and Empathy
Curious about the experience of dissociation and how resonance can help? Join Sarah Peyton to explore the ways in which trauma necessarily creates dissociated neural networks, and approaches to take in reclaiming those neural networks and their wisdom for the self.
This is primarily a learning and neuroscience content webinar, including a small number of actionable insights and healing process work. If you are seeking healing and resonance practice opportunities, please see Sarah’s upcoming courses here
Focusing largely on the mechanisms of dissociation and how resonance begins to stitch us back together, this webinar explores the ways in which trauma necessarily creates dissociated neural networks, and approaches to take in reclaiming those neural networks and their wisdom for the self.
Join Sarah Peyton for a dive into:
1. Intro to Your Brain
2. Relationship between Amygdala and Hippocampus: the Formation of Split-off Memories
3. How Trauma Creates Dissociation: the Formation of Split-off Inner Parts
4. Living with Dissociation
5. Healing from Dissociation: Integration of Memories and Parts
6. An Empathy-Based Approach to Trauma Healing
7. Open Time for Questions
Note: This webinar was done in 2011 and some of the understanding of neuroscience has evolved since this time. Please bear this in mind as you listen.
Note from Sarah: In this webinar I mention that the vagus nerve has 3 gears or channels, which is sort of true - but I don't say that now since the HPA axis ( the body's stress response, Fight/Flight) co-opts the ventral channel of the vagus nerve rather than being part of the nerve itself.
