Dr Berceli Live: Our Body’s Response to Stress & Trauma
April 13, 2019
11:30 am - 12:30 pm (Pacific Daylight Time)
Live Interactive Webinar
We often hear about how trauma affects the brain, but what happens in the body when we experience trauma? What happens to our muscles, our organs, our connective tissue? And how do the physical responses to trauma affect us over time?
In this online lecture and discussion Dr. Berceli will discuss the physiology of stress and trauma, and how the body's innate tremoring mechanism can help unwind the stress and pain that lives within us.
Dr Berceli, is an international expert in trauma intervention and conflict resolution and the creator of Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE). TRE is designed to help release the deep tension created in the body during a traumatic experience or through chronic stress. TRE usage has expanded worldwide and is being used in a variety of settings.
Don't miss this opportunity to speak directly to an internationally recognized expert in trauma recovery.
Have you ever noticed your body shaking in response to a stressful situation or seen a child shaking their legs back and forth when nervous? That shaking is called neurogenic tremoring – an innate release system that all mammals are born with and that is an important component in how the body handles stress.
Recognizing that shaking is a normal, healthy response to release tension, TRE mobilizes it through six yoga‐like exercise. The process is unique in that this shaking originates deep in the core of the body, with gentle waves of movement that reverberate outward along the spine, releasing tension from the sacrum to the cranium. The exercises are a simple form of stretching and are used to gently start these voluntary muscle releases.
TRE can be done by anyone, in any setting, to release the stress or tension that accumulates from everyday life, difficult situations, immediate or prolonged stressful situations, or past traumatic life experiences (e.g., natural disasters, social or domestic violence).
Currently being researched by the Veteran’s Administration, TRE is being used worldwide for individual health support and by therapists, counselors and human service providers as a low-cost complement to cognitive and behavior-based therapies. They report that TRE decreases anxiety, emotional reactivity, physical pain and hypervigilance, and improves resiliency to stress.
