Program Description

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.
