I am delighted to invite the Anchorage Nurse Practitioners to the 1st symposium on Complex Trauma and Addiction, which is being co-sponsored by Providence Breakthrough with the Department of Human Services, UAA, and Elements Behavioral Health.

A group of nationally acclaimed clinicians will track trauma developing from the womb beginning with neonatal abstinence.

The Office of Children's Services will describe their parameters guiding family interventions when parents are addicted.

the changes seen on fMRI in the adult brains of those who have experienced childhood trauma will be presented.

The empirical interventions addressing PTSD, informed by a rich literature base from the military experience is addressed.

The trauma of professional training with its practice of self-neglect as a recipe for addiction is explored.

Essential insights and foundational truths about wounds, healing and healers as depicted in stories from classical antiquity, Jewish and Christian holy days, and Native American ceremonies are introduced.

A skit : The Addicted Neuron will be performed by a local theater troupe
