The Department of Applied Psychology at Antioch University New England (AUNE) is pleased to announce a presentation and book signing event with David Emerson, E-RYT. The author will discuss his most recent work, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga in Therapy: Bringing the Body into Treatment, in the AUNE Community Room from 4:30 pm-6:30 pm on Tuesday, September 22, 2015.
David Emerson is the founder and Director of Yoga Services at the Trauma Center at Justice Resource Center in Brookline, Massachusetts. He coined the term, “Trauma-Sensitive Yoga”—an evidence-based adjunctive treatment for difficult to treat PTSD or complex trauma which can be facilitated by a clinician in the therapy office. Emerson has taught workshops on the topic around the world and co-authored articles on the subject, including the first study looking at yoga for complex trauma published in June, 2014, in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. He is also the co-author, with Elizabeth Hopper, of Overcoming Trauma through Yoga.
