While many therapy training seminars discuss ways to regulate the nervous system, few address this topic from a developmental trauma perspective. Although for many clients lowering the stress response in the body and brain will feel relieving, trauma survivors can experience this nervous system shift as dangerous and painful. This seminar teaches clinicians how to help clients manage and reduce sympathetic nervous system arousal in the body without triggering a rebound effect, wherein a client experiences a sudden increase in physical stress in response to physiological relaxation. No previous NDIT training is required for this course, but completion of this course counts toward NDIT certification (which will be offered starting late 2024).
