In this episode of Change Your Mind! Transformational Dialogues, Craig Weiner, DC explores 8 take-charge strategies to heal your body and brain from stress and trauma with world renowned trauma expert Robert Scaer, M.D. He is the author of the book Eight Keys to Brain/Body Balance.

Dr. Scaer is well known for developing many of the key concepts that underpin our most current understanding of the role of trauma and how it affects the health of our bodies and they way we feel and think about our lives. His insights into the freeze stress response, “trauma capsules” and more are key concepts in such work as EFT, Matrix ReImprinting and many somatic explorations.
