The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center in Wickenburg, Ariz., is sponsoring two lunch and lectures presented by Meadows’ Senior Fellow, Shelley Uram, M.D., on Thursday, March 21 in Greenwood, Colo. at the Cool River Cafe and Friday, March 22 in Colorado Springs, Colo. at the Antlers Hilton Hotel. Lectures are scheduled for 10:00am and 12:30pm both days.
Dr. Uram, a Harvard trained, triple board-certified psychiatrist, will present “The Neurobiology of Trauma Made Simple.” She will discuss how a normal nervous system operates; what trauma is in neurobiological terms; how childhood development factor into adult trauma symptoms; and the treatment and levels of healing.
Dr. Uram is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She speaks nationally and internationally and is best known for transforming the complexity of the brain and traumatology into interesting and easily understandable explanations. She is a much sought out speaker and educator on topics including the human brain’s survival “wiring” and how it often interferes with a person’s ability to thrive in their life; the underpinnings of depression; and the science of meditation.
In addition to Dr. Uram, Michael Barnes, Ph.D., will present “Trauma Informed Addiction Treatment and Containment and Autonomic Regulation (CAR) Therapy.” Dr. Barnes has more than 30 years’ experience as a clinician, program administrator, clinical supervisor, and counselor educator.
Attendees can earn three Continuing Education Credits for each lecture attended. This event is hosted in collaboration with the Center for Dependency, Addiction and Rehabilitation (CeDAR).
