Each of these aspects will be placed within the context of radical public health and structural violence. The physiology of oppression (and privilege) will be reviewed. Clinical and community interventions will be covered, including herbal, naturopathic and allopathic. We’ll wrap up our day with a focus meaningful self-care and trauma stewardship.

“Lydia somehow makes the neurobiology of trauma really fun and really easy to understand. I was [originally] intimidated but I left feeling energized” – Anonymous Student, 2015

“I had a strong appreciation for how much physiology was in the class, specifically within an anti-oppression context, which is widely underrepresented in trauma courses. I've been to so many over the last decade where trauma was only ever represented as a climatic experience, rather than a continuum so many people face” – Clara Bella Story Parnell, Herbalist, LMT, Medicine Maker

"Lydia is an amazing, dynamic teacher who is teaching cutting-edge material about trauma. Taking her class turned ideas I had about trauma work on its head" -- Elissa Mendenhall, ND

Beyond Trauma:

understandings, neuroscience, epigenetics and intervention

Saturday, April 4th, 2015 @ The Herbal Apothecary (28th and Alberta)

10am- 5pm


Designed to be useful primarily to the practicing clinician and secondarily to the lay person with an interest in trauma, this trauma primer covers the basics of trauma and beyond. We’ll review the current theories and understandings of emotional (as well as cultural, historical, systemic and ontological) trauma. Participants will come to understand the primary contributors and the major investigations in the realm of trauma. We will follow the physiological narrative of traumatic experiences centered within neuroscience, with special attention paid to the epigenetic processes. Each of these aspects will be placed within the context of radical public health and human development. Clinical interventions will be covered, including herbal, naturopathic and allopathic. We’ll wrap up our day with a focus on trauma stewardship and meaningful self care.

Phys for the herbalist is now in session -  you will have to a) wait for next winter or b) wait for the DVD set that is sure to come out!

From a past student:

"Lydia is such a knowledgeable instructor, both in how to make information stick and in what's relevant to herbalists. I learned so much about physiology, but most importantly I think I learned about my self and my own health in this class".
