Through my newsletter I will inform you around four times per year on my workshop dates and interesting things in the field of energy psychology. 


Research on trauma traces in the brain

Neuroscientists at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switserland found out that: "The key to a successful treatment of a trauma lies in the very same cells that used to store this trauma. What we can show is that the treatment of a traumatic memory is not mediated by two distinct memory traces, but it is rather an overwriting of the original memory trace of fear toward safety." 

The study was published in Science, issue June 14, 2018.


Trauma and the Brain

At the May 2018 49th TCM Congress in Rothenburg, Germany Rehana presented and demonstrated TBT in the context of a trauma competence day. The first speaker at this event was neurologist Viktoria Glasman of Saarbrücken, Germany who is a trauma specialist as well as a Practitioner of TBT. Her presentation covered the following questions: 

  • How does the brain normally process information? 
  • What changes in this processing if the brain registers an extreme threat? 
  • Which areas in the brain are then put on high alert and which parts go offline?  
  • What are the common reactions to traumatic events and what can be the longterm consequences of trauma?

Viktoria generously makes her conference handout available to all who are interested. It can be downloaded from her website. (Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to "Trauma: Einführung" (DE) (EN) and click (EN) for the English version).
