In Conversation with Babette Rothschild author of The Body Remembers, Volumes 1 & 2 An evening discussion and formal book launch event with limited seating London, 2 November 2017 (Thursday) 6:30pm - 8:30pm
As therapists, we recognize that understanding an updated and integrated view of the Autonomic Nervous System can allow for more precise observation and modulation of arousal states. On 2nd of November, join us for an intellectually stimulating discussion with Babette Rothschild, as she formally launches her new book at London and talks us through both traditional and more recent theories of ANS organization, including those of Stephen Porges. We will have the opportunity, to talk to Babette about: • Clear Thinking, the ANS, and the Brain • Precise Observation of the ANS • Safer Trauma Treatment for Both Client and Therapist: Regulation of the ANS • a new tool for more accurate observation of ANS levels of arousal • Two types of freeze responses as well as two types of hypoarousal states Participants will each receive a laminated version of the new 6-colour ANS table to keep and continue to use in their work and for their own self-care. About the speaker Babette Rothschild, MSW, has been a practitioner since 1976 and a teacher and trainer since 1992.
