The Meadows and The Refuge are hosting a free one-day trauma workshop for clinicians on June 8, 2012, in Delray Beach, Florida from 8:00am to 3:30pm.
This workshop will focus on both attachment and addiction; exploring how the lack of healthy attachment in childhood can lead to a variety of mental, emotional, social, and physical health problems in adulthood, effecting resiliency and a person's ability to function in a healthy manner. The presentation will also explore the neurobiology behind "the perfect storm" of addiction and how trauma replicates and fuels chemical dependence.
Presenters include Judy Crane, Founder and Executive Director of The Refuge; Dr. Jon Caldwell, psychiatrist at The Meadows; and Dr. Douglas Davies, neurobiologist. Titles of presentations include "The Loneliest Heart: "The Many Faces of Trauma,"" "Mindful Awareness of Attachment: "Fostering Emotion Regulation and Resiliency in Trauma Recovery,"" and "Neurobiology of Addictions and Trauma."
