About the event
Event price: By donation
Preverbal traumas present unique challenges in treatment given they occur before the development of speech and cognitive meaning-making relative to such traumas. Often the client is consciously unaware of their trauma, viewing somatic symptoms as medical issues and emotions as generalized anxiety or depression rather than being rooted in early trauma.
Drawing from trauma theory, attachment theories, neuroscience, transactional analysis, psychoanalysis and body analysis, Novak will weave theory and clinical vignettes together to provide an overview of both theory and clinical practice. The seminar will help therapists recognize the clues that may indicate early trauma, how to explore this possibility with clients, and how to then address preverbal trauma in treatment.
