The women’s only PTSD Support Group for Sexual Trauma Survivors is led by Brenda McBride, LCSW and Licensed Brain Gym Instructor. Sessions include Cognitive Behavioral techniques, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR®) calming strategies, Brain Gym®, Tension and Trauma Reducing Exercises (TRE®), Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) and other evidenced-based interventions.
“Trauma often leaves physiological imprints in our bodies and can be stored in the body,” McBride said. “Trauma is not just an issue of being stuck in the past. It is just as much a problem with not being fully alive in the present. This groundbreaking group will utilize both body and whole-brain strategies to help bring healing to the whole person; because trauma is not all in our heads.”
