Through an in-depth discussion and case illustrations, Roger Keizerstein, LCSW, will differentiate between Trauma referred to with a capital “T” and the type of traumas referred to with a lower case “t.”  Throughout this presentation, he will explain how the autonomic nervous system (ANS) functions by defining specific symptoms and behaviors found in a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Accumulated Stress Injury.

Audience participation will be encouraged to enhance learning about the various implications of traumas and to reinforce an understanding of the impact of trauma on the brain and ANS. Mr. Keizerstein will demonstrate various treatment approaches for effective treatment of symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and accumulated stress injury.
