Trauma and Habits

Online Masterclass – 30th July
2 CPD Points
$80.00
Often clients seek help with the goal of changing one or more habits such as drug and alcohol consumption, comfort eating, insufficient exercise, or withdrawing from social connections. Experiences of trauma often lead to the establishment of habits that provide protection and facilitate survival, and are effective for a period of time. Many clients can feel frightened and/or hopeless about changing these habits.

How it will help

Recent neuroscience research provides great hope for clients about changing their habits, proving that the brain can change and create new pathways based upon behaviours, and therefore allows the establishment of new habits. Habits are behaviours that are repeated so often that they become automatic or ‘second nature.’ Each repetition of the behaviour results in a deepening of the neural pathway associated. 

What you will learn

The topic of habits will be explored in detail in this online masterclass, covering: 

  • The meaning of ‘habits’ 
  • The involvement of the brain in establishing habits and the neurobiology behind them 
  • Societal and intrapersonal influences that shape habits 
  • The impact of trauma on habits 
  • Cultivating curiosity about existing habits 
  • Examining how habits reflect identity, with the establishment of new habits involving a shift in identity related to that habit 
  • The identification of strategies to support the adoption of new habits.
