Y12SR Leadership Training with Dana Walters

This Y12SR program presents a framework for addiction recovery that includes the cognitive approach of the 12-step program, the trauma healing approach of Somatic Experiencing and the body-based approaches offered by yoga and mindfulness practices.

Utilizing material from ancient texts, trauma research as well as information and data from modern neuroscience studies, we will discuss exactly how combining the cognitive and somatic approaches can support changes in brain patterning. This holistic framework, based in the theme, ‘The Issues Live in Our Tissues’, presents a holistic relapse prevention model that supports compassionate awareness, change and healing.
