“But I Never Hit My Head…”:  The prevalence of undiagnosed TBI and how it presents in your practice

In this presentation, we will become familiar with the effects Traumatic Brain Injuries and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy have on the human condition, both personally and interpersonally.

Using the lens of Applied Psychophysiology, the practical understanding of the mind-body interrelationship with regard to therapeutic treatments of various kinds, we will explore therapeutic approaches used in cases gleaned from the twenty-five-year clinical practice of Kayle Sandberg-Lewis, LMT, MA, BCN Fellow. A supportive review of research will be provided.
