How to Recover Your Hijacked Brain:

Calming Your Triggered Nervous System

Presented by: Amber Stiles-Bodnar, MSEd, LPCC-S, LCDC III

Blue Star Family Counseling Services, Inc.

 

ASAP 2019 Drug Summit
break out session

When you become activated your neocortex (thinking brain) goes offline and your limbic (emotion) brain hijacks the system. You feel intense emotions and body sensations. To escape this many use alcohol and other drugs to alleviate the pain. Therefore, a primary goal of alcohol and drug treatment and counseling is for the person to feel connection with their body and know the danger has passed and it is safe to live in the present. This workshop will explore how trauma changes the brain, the connection to emotional reactions, the urge to numb feelings, and pragmatic ways to regain control over the limbic system.
