Sexual Evolution; The Effect of Digital and Social Media On Relationship Intimacy and Addiction

This multi-media, hands-on workshop offers a broad, but concrete overview of the changing face of human relationships and sexuality related to life online.


Complex Trauma and Addiction: Impact and Resolution

The memory of trauma is often suppressed through excessive use of drugs or alcohol.  However, this pain-filled inner world will eventually reveal itself when life becomes unmanageable.

A group of nationally acclaimed clinicians will track trauma developing from the womb beginning with neonatal abstinence.  The Office of Children’s Services will describe their parameters guiding family intervention when parents are addicted.

The changes seen on fMRI in the adult brains of those who have experienced childhood trauma is then presented.

Essential insights and foundational truths about wounds, healing, and healers as depicted in stories from classical antiquity, Jewish and Christian holy days, and Native American ceremonies are introduced.

Finally, the trauma of professional training with its practice of self-neglect as a recipe for addiction is explored.
