The Nervous System's Response to ADHD and Toxic Stress
April 23, 2021 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
This course will build on the previous course called Trauma or ADHD: Trauma-Informed Tools for Working with ADHD; however, it is not a prerequisite for this course. Participants will be given an overview of the similarities between ADHD and the body's response to toxic stress levels. We will discuss why a more somatic approach tends to have more effective results. We will address how the current system of mental health increases the disparity between majority and minority cultures and how that affects minorities of color who disproportionately encounter toxic stress.
This will be a body centered approach providing specific tools for working with ages 9-99. The facilitators will explain the Wave Model based on experiential therapy and the work of (Dana) Maurie Lung, PhD, LMHC, LMFT; Gary Stauffer, LMSW; and Tony Alvarez, LMSW. Participants will be invited to practice the tools with each other or in a group while being supported by the facilitators.
Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.
