Alexis will be giving an introduction of TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises), explain what are neurogenic tremors, how it can be incorporated as an intervention for healing, and how Brainspotting can be easily integrated into a tremoring session. Her talk will cover the benefits of neurogenic tremoring, the stress response, and how trauma and stress negatively impact our body. She will highlight anecdotal examples of how Brainspotting& TRE have been used in her practice, and the benefits of using both modalities for post-pandemic treatment. In addition, she will share ways to incorporate Brainspotting& tremoring into a therapist’s self-maintenance plan to reduce vicarious trauma and pandemic burnout.
