The Meadows is sponsoring a free breakfast and lecture in Bellevue, WA on Friday, November 16 presented by Meadows' Senior Fellow, Shelley Uram, M.D. on the topic of "Trauma and Addiction." It will be held at the Bellefield Office Park Conference Room, 1150-114th Ave. S.E. from 9:00 to 11:00am. Registration is required.
Dr. Uram, a Harvard trained, triple board-certified psychiatrist, will describe why it is extremely important to clear trauma from the system in order to more effectively deal with addiction. In addition, she will discuss the connection between emotional pain and nervous system regulation and how addictions become a natural outcome in dealing with some evolutionary early brain wiring.
Dr. Uram speaks nationally and internationally and is best known for transforming the complexity of the brain and traumatology into interesting and easily understandable explanations. She is a much sought out speaker and educator on topics including the human brain's survival "wiring" and how it often interferes with a person's ability to thrive in their life; the underpinnings of depression; and the science of meditation.
