Social trauma work emphasizes the systemic impact of trauma beyond individuals and families into the larger fields of local, national and global community. The concept of social trauma or of trauma extending beyond the individual into the community, culture,nations and Earth herself is still very new.This workshop will address those kinds of trauma and other states of overwhelm that extend beyond individual experience. With the frequency of natural and man made disasters, contagious diseases, wars, national conflicts and violence on the increase all over the world, treatment is often a question of real physical, social, cultural and political survival for the involved region. It is important to understand that trauma is a global issue and that there is an urgent need to develop international, cross-cultural, cost-effective trauma education and recovery programs based upon easily transmitted concepts. Workshop experience will explore multimodal options for working with social trauma which are based upon the recognition that the psychophysiological manifestations of trauma are directly reflected in the behavior of humans as social beings throughtout the life cycle.
