About the Workshop

Content Level: Beginner

There is a positive correlation between trauma and addiction. Many people who are diagnosed with the disease of addiction also identify as experiencing some traumatic event in their lives. What has been discovered through research is that this correlation affects the person on the biological level as well as physical and emotional. By examining the way trauma affects brain function, providers can help clients understand the range of parallel connections between substance use disorders and trauma to find healing from both.


Learning Objectives:

  • Define Trauma and Addiction
  • Identify the Neurobiological Changes in Response to Traumatic Stress
  • Examine the Function of the Nervous System in response to Trauma
  • Identify Effective Modes of Interventions
