Trauma is now recognized as having a physical component and requires interventions that address the body for the most effective treatment. The perspective of neurobiology provides a non-judgmental approach to all trauma symptoms and presentations. This training will use the lens of the nervous system, specifically Polyvagal Theory, to aid in the process of trauma recovery. Participants will gain a better understanding

of trauma and practice skills to enhance their effectiveness in supporting individuals with trauma. The class will provide a safe and supportive environment to model this approach.

BEYOND FIGHT, FLIGHT, FREEZE:  
THE NEUROBIOLOGY OF FAWNING AND APPEASEMENT

Durango, CO

November 8, 2024

6 hours total

9:30am - 5:00pm (1.5 hour lunch) 

While the trauma-response term of flight-flight-freeze has been readily recognized in both professional and layperson circles, the concept of fawning and appeasement are being seen as adaptive trauma responses also. This training will explain how fawning and appeasement are connected to biological drives to stay safe; both biological adaptations come from being in a down-power position that will often inhibits the healing process. The training will describe the neurobiology of both these trauma adaptations and strategies on how to identify and support new options to move a client from victim to survivor. Supporting victims/survivors effectively with a deeper understanding of these adaptations is critical as it empowers and restores agency. This information is cutting-edge and mini-workshops of this topic have been presented at National Trauma Training Conferences for victim service providers.
