Trauma sensitive yoga
In this workshop participants were invited to experience a short trauma sensitive yoga practice. Trauma center trauma senstive yoga (TCTSY) is an evidence-based adjunctive treatment for complex, developmental trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. It was developed by the Center for Trauma and Embodiment in the USA. The center is dedicated to researching, developing, and training providers in effective, trauma-informed practices that help survivors safely re-connect to their body so that they may engage more fully with their life. Katia Verreault works at War Child Holland and is a TCTSY-facilitator. She presented the work that she has been doing with trauma survivors. This session is not recorded.
Serial Killers and their crimes
Have you ever wondered why someone commits murder? What drives them to stalk and kill their victims? In this presentation, we examine several known American serial killers who have been identified, captured, and processed through the legal system. The focus is on the psychology of the killer, the investigative and legal processes used, and the public's fascination with such crimes and criminals. Tracey is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a background in forensic psychology. .
