Interpersonal Neurobiology

  • Working with the Neurobiological Legacy of Early Trauma
  • The author describes how the brain reacts to trauma. She then discusses the long-term effects of trauma on a person’s neurobiology; she uses neurobiology, in turn, to inform how therapy should be conducted for those affected by trauma. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is offered as a means to help clients overcome their trauma....

  • Embryonic & Neural Development: Setting the Stage for the Lifespan
  • Dr. Charles A. Nelson, from the Children's Hospital Boston, gives a detailed discussion on the process of embryonic and neural development. He begins with a chronological discussion of the process involved in pre-natal development, followed by an overview of the stages of brain development. The presentation concludes with a thorough discussion of neural plasticity and its relationship to environmental experiences....

  • Factors Influencing Brain Development
  • Dr. Bryan Kolb, from the University of Lethbridge, gives an in-depth lecture on the neurology behind brain development. He says different experiences build different brain structures, which in turn function differently. Contrary to what was long thought, our genes are not set in stone. Environments and experience change the expression of our genes, and those changed genes can be passed along to the next generation....

  • Adverse Childhood Experiences: Posttraumatic Stress Disorder & Beyond VIDEO
  • Dr. Ruth Lanius, from the University of Western Ontario, discusses the broad physical effects of adverse childhood experiences and their role in posttraumatic stress disorder. An overview of the neurobiology of posttraumatic stress disorder is presented as well as implications of findings on attachment and intergenerational transmission of trauma....
