The Body Keeps the Score

June 24, 2015
12:30-1:30pm EST
1 CE: $29 members; $49 nonmembers

If you are looking for proven alternatives to traditional treatments—and new ways for survivors of trauma to reclaim their lives—this webinar is for you.  Join Dr. Bessel van der Kolk for a lively discussion of his 2014 book, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma. Does traumatic stress rearrange the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust? Dr. Bessel van der Kolk believes it does. He also believes these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, and yoga. 

Bessel A. van der Kolk,  M.D. is an internationally recognized leader in the field of psychological trauma. He has been active as a clinician, researcher, and teacher in the area of posttraumatic stress and related phenomena since the 1970s. Dr. van der Kolk is past President of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University Medical School, and Medical Director of the Trauma Center at JRI in Brookline, Massachusetts. He has taught at universities and hospitals across the United States and around the world, including Europe, Africa, Russia, Australia, Israel, and China. His work integrates developmental, biological, psychodynamic, and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

ACA really enjoys paying as much attention as we can to graduate students and new professionals and we need your help to do so.

Dear Graduate Students and New Professionals,

ACA really enjoys paying as much attention as we can to graduate students and new professionals and we need your help to do so.

An important ACA initiative is our special For Graduate Students and New Professionals Only conference series. Each year at the annual conference, ACA provides education sessions by some of the most famous authors, theorists, and leaders in professional counseling on topics specifically chosen by graduate students and new professionals.

  • Don W. Locke—Building Skills and Advocating for the Counseling Profession.

ACA needs your help in determining the lineup for the 2014 ACA conference in Hawaii next March. We would love to have you respond to the following two questions: 1.—Other than a faculty member in your own program, who is a famous counselor that you would enjoy seeing (and meeting) at the conference? Who is the person most likely to get the following reaction from you: “I can’t believe I’m seeing her/him in person!”

2. What topic(s) would you like to see at the 2014 conference for the For Graduate Students and New Professionals Only series? Most of our student attendees are enrolled in master’s degree programs, so while we certainly want doctoral level related programs, we are especially desirous of topics that are meaningful to master’s level students and new professionals.

ACA thanks you for your willingness to help construct the 2014 For Graduate Students and New Professionals Only series. The ACA conference is the world’s largest conference for professional counselors (3,500 attended the Cincinnati conference last month) and we hope that everyone can come to Hawaii. For information on the conference – including how to submit a proposal before the June 5th deadline- visit www.counseling.org/conference. Even if you can’t attend we still would love to have your ideas for the series.

You can send your thoughts directly to ACA at dkaplan@counseling.org.
