Do your clients fear their traumatic nightmares as a place of darkness in their lives? Let Dr. Howard Tyas show you how you can bring them out of that darkness and into the light of understanding and healing.  

Full Description:
Nightmares are a natural part of how the psyche has evolved and how it functions, despite being extremely unsettling. Current scientific research suggests they are an integral part of the psyche’s and the body’s self-regulatory dynamics, helping to process feeling states that are either overwhelming or unacknowledged.  
This webinar will explore nightmares that occur in response to a traumatizing event or experience, and the truth behind them. We will examine nightmares resulting from complex formation, military combat or PTSD, natural disasters, intentional acts of violence and violation, and the death of a loved one. Dr. Tyas will conclude by analyzing how nightmares can be a transition to healing, and then he will share current treatment options for addressing your client’s underlying issue.
