How are Trauma and Dissociation Embodied?

February 24th, 2024
12 noon to 2:00 PM, EST

Although it is widely acknowledged that trauma and dissociation profoundly affect our bodies, answers to questions about just how they are embodied vary greatly. A clinician’s understanding of the bodily effects of trauma and dissociation has important implications for the healing process. For this reason, we have brought together clinicians who hold different views on the embodiment of trauma and dissociation to our “Conversations on Embodiment” series.  Francoise Davoine, Heather Ferguson, Stephen Knoblauch and Henry Markman will first present their own perspectives and then answer questions posed by Jon Sletvold and Doris Brothers. After they dialogue together, members of the online audience will be invited to join the conversation.
