About the Event
It makes sense when we experience physical injuries that our bodies remember: we might have visible scars, or we might have scars that are not visible but felt. If due attention is not given to recovery, a hip injury might mean that we never recover full range of motion, or we might be able to walk just fine but make minute compensations that lead to injury or imbalances down the road. What about emotional injuries or traumas? in 2015, psychiatrist Bessel A. Van der Kolk published a bestseller called "The Body Keeps the Score". In this ground-breaking book, he discusses how bodies remember and store traumas. Its publication has led to a proliferation of studies that examine how grief, an emotional injury of sorts, is stored in our bodies. Consider: how does grief feel in your body? How might unexpressed grief be stored in the body over time? This week, we look at the connection between grief and the body through discussion and personal experiences. We also touch on the growing research and data that support this concept, pulling us out of the world of woo-woo.
