This course will focus on how trauma affects development of the brain and what that means for early attachment and attunement issues. We will look at trauma and the neuroscience of development, how trauma interferes with our ability to connect in a healthy way, and what we know about brain plasticity and how it can be used to heal psychological trauma. You will be given real world examples in addition to learning new techniques for working with the plasticity of the brain to begin repair.


In this engaging online recording, Robert Cox looks at the research, how the brain reacts to trauma and what this means in the real world for treatment. Using case examples and his own observation Robert has laid out a method and direction for treatment that is making a profound difference in the lives of the individuals he supports every day.


From families to schools to employment and individual struggles, Robert shares the methods that can bring lasting change to lives and often reduce or remove the necessity for expensive  services.
