We have all had our moments of feeling “stuck” in the face of a client’s paralysis by their core harmful beliefs or the triggers of a traumatic experience. These moments are actually representative of neuronal encodings that occur in the survival part of the brain, the amygdala.

Join Dr. Kate Truitt to learn the SNAP (Sense Notice Apply Preoccupy) Havening Techniques Protocol. You will learn about the neurological underpinnings of traumatic encodings and discover a new opportunity for trauma reprocessing via amygdala depotentiation. Through the Self-Havening touch and cognitive paradigms, the SNAP protocol helps empower the brain and body to come together as a unified whole to unstick the sticky memories that keep our clients stuck.

Come learn how to SNAP the amygdala out of ruminating negativity or triggers and open up new possibilities for resiliency development.
