The Meadows is a participating sponsor of the 28th Annual Northwest Conference on Behavioral Health and Addictive Disorders to be held June 29 – July 1 in Seattle (Bellevue), Washington. This premier training event is being presented by the U.S. Journal Training, Inc. and The Institute for Integral Development.

This year’s event offers a forum for exploring complex issues within the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions of mental illness and addictive disorders. A series of comprehensive seminars will spotlight trauma treatment, brain science and therapy, wisdom of the heart and mindfulness, co-occurring disorders, and treating anxiety and depression.

Among the roster of nationally recognized speakers is Shelley Uram, MD, Senior Fellow at The Meadows and Harvard-trained, triple board certified psychiatrist. She will present a keynote entitled "Trauma Treatment Evolved" where attendees will examine what happens in the brain when a person is traumatized, how this can dysregulate the nervous system and body, and approaches that can help traumatized people get their lives back. Dr. Uram will also speak on "Psychological Trauma and Addiction: How Do They Connect?" where she will explain trauma in a simple to understand manner.

Jon Caldwell, DO, PhD, Chief Psychiatrist at The Meadows, will cover "Trauma, Attachment and Addiction: Healing Relational Wounds by Cultivating Mindfulness and Self-Compassion". He will investigate how child maltreatment can profoundly influence human development, resulting in a variety of mental, emotional, and social challenges – including addictive disorders.
