(Auburn/Lewiston, Maine) Health Affiliates Maine (HAM) a statewide substance abuse and mental health agency is excited to offer a cutting edge clinician seminar on “Working with Trauma: Looking through the lens of Neuroscience” presented by Deb Dana, LCSW.   The trainings will be provided in three locations:  the Fireside Inn in Portland on Friday, March 6, 2015, the Franco-American Heritage Center in Lewiston on Friday, March 13, 2015 and the Spectacular Event Center in Bangor on Friday, March 20, 2015.

Andrea Krebs, Executive Director of HAM says “There is a good deal of research in recent years that has revealed more about psychological and neurobiological processes and how they are interconnected in response to trauma”.  Clinicians find that understanding the relationships between the brain and traumatic experiences has become an expectation of an informed, evidence-based practice.

Deb Dana, LCSW is a founding member of Island Institute for Trauma Recovery specializing in work with complex traumatic stress. Deb developed and teaches a trauma theory and practice in the School of Social Work at the University of Southern Maine. Along with her clinical practice she provides neuroscience informed consultation for clinicians and agencies.
