Peter A. Levine, PhD
Founder of Somatic Experiencing® trauma recovery
Why do we find that people with trauma histories usually have some level of addiction? So often, trauma leads to states of dysregulation. Without other support, many people turn to substances to address the dysregulation they experience. Unfortunately, this approach offers only a temporary fix, and what’s more, actually increases the dysregulation over time. In this session, Dr. Peter Levine helps us understand the connections between trauma, addiction, and shame, providing tools and body-based practices for breaking the cycles.
Dr. Peter Levine received his doctorate in medical biophysics from the University of California, Berkeley, and also holds a doctorate in psychology from International University. He has worked in the field of stress and trauma for over 40 years and is the developer of the Somatic Experiencing method. Dr. Levine’s original contribution to the field of body psychotherapy was honored in 2010 when he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy. That same year, he also received the honorary Reiss-Davis Chair in Child Psychiatry for his innovative contribution to therapy for children and adolescents.
Founder of the Dynamic Neural Retraining System™
Anxiety, chemical sensitivities, exhaustion, and chronic pain syndromes were on the rise before the coronavirus pandemic, but the effects of COVID-19 have led to health challenges beyond the virus itself—leaving many people in a chronic fight, flight, or freeze stress state. When the brain is stuck in this state, we find ourselves looping in the same self-protective thoughts, emotions, and behaviors—creating the very patterns that reinforce the state itself. Join Annie Hopper, founder of the Dynamic Neural Retraining System, as she shares practical information about this self-directed, neuroplasticity-based program to help you get unstuck and improve your health.
Annie Hopper is a limbic system rehabilitation specialist with a global mission: to take the “mystery” out of “mysterious illness.” Hopper empowers people with the tools that they need to rewire their brains, transform their health, and reclaim their lives. In 2008, after recovering from debilitating chronic illness, Hopper founded the Dynamic Neural Retraining System—a drug-free, neuroplasticity-based approach to rewire neural pathways in the brain that are associated with a maladapted stress response. The program assists in decreasing symptoms associated with many illnesses such as anxiety, chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, food sensitivities, Lyme disease, and many other chronic conditions. She has lectured throughout North America and abroad, educating both patients and doctors alike about the connection between environmental toxins, brain trauma, physical health, and self-directed neuroplasticity. Speaking engagements include the Parliament House, Helsinki, Finland; the Brain Injury Association of Canada; the American Academy of Environmental Medicine; the Institute for Functional Medicine; the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association; McMaster University Teaching Hospital; the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health; the Academy of Comprehensive Medicine; the Autism Education Summit; the Forum for Integrative Medicine; and the International Society for Environmentally Acquired Illnesses.
