Presenter:  Kirby Reutter, PhD 

September 14, 2018

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM 

1.5 Hours of Professional Development Offered

The Journey from Mars:  Stabilizing the Traumatized Brain
In this workshop, we will review 5 basic themes of brain development, as well as 5 simple steps to quickly stabilize a traumatized brain.  “Sofia,” a survivor of human trafficking, will be used as our case study.  By the end of this workshop, you will accomplish the following objectives:
1.  Identify the 5 basic themes and 4 basic stages of brain development.
2.  Conceptualize traumatized brain development as a very predictable sine wave. 
3.  Apply basic de-escalation techniques to quickly stabilize a traumatized brain.
Dr. Reutter is a bilingual psychologist licensed in both Ohio and Texas.  Dr. Reutter specializes in treating trauma survivors, working with Spanish-speakers, and providing evaluations for adoptive couples.  Dr. Reutter has presented original research on spiritual coping at MIT; has provided 2 trainings for the US Marines; has spoken 4 times at the international conference on human trafficking in Toledo, Ohio; and most recently, conducted a TEDx talk on the effects of human trafficking at Purdue.  In addition to 8 previous publications, Dr. Reutter has just completed a self-help trauma workbook, which is slated to be published by New Harbinger in 2019.
