DVD - Addiction, Trauma, & Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs): The Neuroscience behind Developmental/Attachment Trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences
Clients are desperately trying to make sense of their symptoms of depression, free-floating anxiety, addictive behaviours, dysregulated emotions, physiological arousal, and seemingly unrelated medical issues. They look to you to create an understanding, provide an accurate diagnosis, and layout an effective treatment approach; however, you find that you can’t without understanding and addressing their “why”. The science is clear and overwhelming about the lasting effects of adverse childhood experiences, developmental trauma, and attachment wounds.
In this video, you will learn key insights regarding the neuroscience of addiction from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect, and the impact on later-life health and well-being. You will understand the important assessment and treatment implications from neuroscience that shows us addiction is experience-dependent, not substance dependent.
You will learn treatment recommendations from the leading experts in trauma and addictions treatment including:

Book - Attachment: 60 Trauma-Informed Assessment and Treatment Interventions Across the Lifespan
In a society that values independence, self-preservation and individualistic thinking, we are missing the key to fulfilment: Connection through Attachment.
Simply, attachment is the way that we connect to each other. Without attachment, people feel alone to deal with the challenges they face, which leads to distress, dysfunction and mental health disorders. It is possible to repair dysfunctional attachment, but first, it is necessary to recognize attachment style, unhealthy relationship patterns, and the impact they are having.
Improve your client’s relationships by teaching them strategies to feel more connected, reestablish trust, and restore positive emotions. Dr. Christina Reese, a recognized attachment and trauma professional, has created a comprehensive guide that explains attachment over a lifetime and offers trauma-informed approaches to treat attachment at any age.
