Relational Trauma and the Clinical Realm of Hyper- and Hypo-arousal
There is a growing body of investigation and neuroscience research that underscore role affect plays in organizing the way we feel and act in the world. For Daniel Hill, Ph.D, attention to affect regulation is at the core of all psychotherapies. In his book Affect Regulation Theory (2015) he both translates and elaborates the current theories of affect and its relationship to well-being.
Join us for an evening talk in which Dr. Hill will provide an overview of affect regulation theory. He will describe the two affect-regulating systems; one that operates unconsciously instantaneously and involuntarily, providing us with our gut reactions and the other that develops later is a conscious, deliberate, verbal reflective system.
Please note that the reception with light dinner will be held from 5:30-6:30. The lecture will begin at 6:30.
