Guest lecturer Dr. Matthew Vasquez will share his research, appropriate not only for people in his field but for any of us who are feeling a bit traumatized by recent events. Note to those in the EU - the speaker is in the US so the time will be one hour later so the US universities will see it at their usual time.

Participants will learn about the increasing acceptance of movement-based therapies to treat psychological trauma and other mental health disorders. The presentation will specifically include, 1) a review of current trends in movement-based therapies, 2) a presentation of an ongoing randomized control trial that is examining the effects of trauma-sensitive yoga and Chen Style tai chi on PTSD and other co-occurring symptoms, 3) a discussion of the importance of self-reflection, adaptability, and collaboration when undertaking exploratory research.
