Educational Objectives:

  • Define bottom-up processing of sensory information.
  • Understand the ethical treatment of trauma and eating disorders using evidence based practice.
  • Explore trauma and its impact on the body and brain
  • Practice bottom-up approaches to healing through mindfulness, mediation, and yoga.
  • Integrate distress tolerance techniques for managing emotions
  • Identify and explore how to incorporate bottom up techniques in clinical treatment.

Workshop Description:

Many of us are aware that part of healing happens verbally and part happens non-verbally through bottom-up processing of sensory information vs. top-down processing that is driven by cognition. In this workshop we will explore some of the most popular non-verbal, bottom-up approaches to healing. We will connect theory and practice experientially by introducing yoga postures, breath work, mindfulness, distress tolerance and meditation tools to connect to our inner worlds and heal. We will discuss how to apply these approaches to trauma and eating disorders as well as explore the relationship between them. We’ll also look at the effects of trauma on our nervous system and brains. Finally, we will explore window of tolerance and heart rate variability as well as other brain systems that are affected by trauma.
