Flashbacks & The Fight/Flight/Freeze Response

how trauma affects the brainFlashbacks and the fight/flight/freeze response are two of the most difficult PTSD symptoms to cope with — that’s why we’re devoting an entire FREE 60+ minutes to talking about how and why they happen, plus what you can do about them.

On Thursday, June 19th (that’s next week!), we’ll be hosting “The Science Behind Your Symptoms, Part 2”, our next free webinar in our PTSD webinar series, HOW TRAUMA AFFECTS YOUR BRAIN.

So far in the series we’ve covered what parts of your brain are changed by trauma (and create your symptoms of PSTD), and how to start reversing those effects (because often the changes to your brain can be changed again!).

On this webinar we’ll cover:

  • an inside definition of stress
  • why you get stuck the in the fight/flight/freeze response
  • how flashbacks happen — and what you can do to stop them

For this extended conversation I’m bringing in a heavy hitter trauma expert, Dr. Tania Glenn, the president of Tania Glenn and Associates (TGA), PA, a clinical practice with two offices in Austin, TX, and the TGA Readiness Action Division (RAD) a sub-component focused on promoting critical incident response and peer support teams and providing situational awareness training. Dr. Glenn is a leading national clinician in the identification of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Even if you’re busy on June 19th sign up anyway; we’ll be sending you the free replay link the next day.

  1. PTSD is treatable. There is more that one treatment method that works. As a therapist I have trained in a number of them some considered alternative such as EFT. The technique I use almost exclusively now is PSYCH-K. PSYCH-K is an amazing process that works deeply on the human subconscious. Disconnecting the emotional trauma from the memory. PTSD symptoms can respond very quickly to this simple and effective technique. One does not need to use “talk therapy” to work through trauma. In my experience as a therapist for over 30 years, I have not seen anything as effective and efficient. PSYCH-K is not really appreciated until it is experienced. It won’t be long before this rapid mind set technology is acknowledged as a cutting edge transnational tool by mental health professionals around the globe. It is so effective it can’t be ignored. The international PSYCH-K website is: https://www.psych-k.com/
