2-Day: Trauma Conference: The Body Keeps Score-Trauma Healing with Bessel van der Kolk, MD



Nobody can “treat” abuse, rape, molestation, or any other horrendous event. What has happened cannot be undone.

But what can be dealt with are the imprints of the trauma on body, mind, and soul.

Watch Bessel van der Kolk, MD, in a transformational clinical trauma training. Attend and learn from one of the most renowned trauma experts - one who has spent decades working both as a researcher and clinician. – and NY Times bestselling author of The Body Keeps The Score.

As clinicians, the challenge is to help clients reestablish ownership of their bodies and minds — to feel without becoming overwhelmed, enraged, ashamed, or collapsed.

It takes specific methods, like neurofeedback, EMDR, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and sensory integration. Dr. van der Kolk has used every one of these methods extensively to successfully treat his own clients, and has also experienced them himself.

This 2-day conference will serve as both a guide and an invitation – an invitation to dedicate yourself to the pursuit of helping trauma clients with the best treatment approaches proven to alleviate suffering.

Let Dr. van der Kolk show you how to apply these proven methods and approaches to your clinical practice — so you can experience the satisfaction of helping even your toughest client heal from deep-rooted trauma.

Bessel van der Kolk, M.D.'s Profile

Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. Related seminars and products


Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D., is a clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of post-traumatic stress.  His work integrates developmental, neurobiological, psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

Dr. van der Kolk and his various collaborators have published extensively on the impact of trauma on development, such as dissociative problems, borderline personality and self-mutilation, cognitive development, memory, and the psychobiology of trauma.  He has published over 150 peer reviewed scientific articles on such diverse topics as neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, yoga, theater, and EMDR. 

He is founder of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, and President of the Trauma Research Foundation, which promotes clinical, scientific, and educational projects. 

His 2014 #1 New York Times best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma, transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring – specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust.  He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, somatically based therapies, EMDR, psychodrama, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Dr. van der Kolk is the past president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and professor of psychiatry at Boston University Medical School.  He regularly teaches at conferences, universities, and hospitals around the world.
