PTSD is a commonly known term today, describing a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event. While it is more widely discussed today, 1st responders & Veterans have struggled with it for decades, previously calling it “shell shock,” “war
neurosis,” or “combat exhaustion.” Often, it was never discussed at all, and Veterans suffered in silence, struggling to reintegrate into “normal life” with no outlet to release these traumatic memories and experiences.
In this immersion, health-care & Yoga professionals will understand the theoretical foundations and historical development of Cognative Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from a Mindfulness view. In this immersion, we explore CBT and art theories relevant to expressive movement and somatic therapy.
