This is a 45-min webinar in partnership with OnStar, followed by 15-mins for Q&A and discussion.
About this initiative: The Healing After Trauma platform curated in partnership with OnStar - the pioneering safety and connectivity technology from General Motors, spans a three-part webinar series and a guided art workshop, to offer complimentary health and wellness insights and aid, targeting anyone who has directly, or indirectly, been impacted by a road traffic incident.
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:
Even without physical injury, trauma following a road traffic accident is often stored in the body.Research has shown that the brain’s ability to regulate arousal by thoughts alone is limited when faced with acute stress (LeDoux, J.) Often, words can not define nor express the embodied experience of the trauma of accident. This session will explore physical responses to emotional trauma and take a look at somatic healing approaches such as art as means to grow through the trauma of a road traffic accident.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Anyone who has directly, or indirectly, been impacted by a road traffic incident
ATTENDEES WILL WALK AWAY WITH:
- A recap of the psychological and emotional impact of experiencing a traumatic incident
- Developing an awareness of how the body physically holds trauma responses
- Practical tips and tools to engage with the body following emotional trauma
- Further exploration of somatic healing approaches and taking a ‘Body up’ approach to healing through the therapeutic platform of art.
