Conversations with Dr. Tony featuring Jan Winhall- Trauma and Addiction
This webinar is hosted by Community Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) and the Managed Care Technical Assistant Center (MCTAC)
Addiction is often viewed as a disease that includes self-harming behavior. However, addictive tendencies are often learned responses to escape trauma or emotional distress.
In this “Conversations with Dr. Tony,” we will speak with Jan Winhall, a social worker and psychotherapist, about her many years of experience treating addiction with The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™, which is a way of understanding addictions as state regulation strategies in the autonomic nervous system. This conversation is also designed to invite attendees to ask questions as well as to share what they have done in their work treating individuals who have experienced addiction following trauma events.
