The Restoration of the Hijacked Self: Toward Embodiment and Connection



Trauma can have a profound impact on the sense of self, frequently leaving a lasting imprint on both cognitive and somatic domains of the sense of self. Recent provocative neurobiological findings are beginning to shed light on self-disturbance in traumatized individuals both during resting state/off task and under conditions of threat. Results are demonstrating that the brain network that underlies self-experience is most intact under states of threat. These findings may help to explain why traumatized individuals frequently seek engaging in reckless behaviour in order to ‘feel alive’. How can we work with the traumatized self to restore the sense of self at a cognitive and somatic level to reunite brain, mind, and body? An integrative, neuroscientifically-informed approach leading to the restoration of the self will be the focus of this recording.
