"The Trauma Brain Project is a catalyst for change..."
(Ann Marie Collier, M.D.)
The Trauma Brain Project is a unique theatrical narrative that explores the effects of PTSD resulting from childhood trauma/sexual abuse, and the myriad ways in which its symptoms present — symptoms that are too often unacknowledged, misunderstood, misdiagnosed.
"...an unforgettable night of theater."
By sharing one woman's story — a decades-long journey through three stages of life — of childhood seizures, inexplicable physical symptoms, hidden trauma, PTSD and ultimate healing through somatic trauma release work, The Trauma Brain Project portrays how early trauma can rewire the brain and impact the body in ways that we are only just beginning to understand.
"Tonight for the first time I heard my story from someone else's mouth...."
Wherever possible, the theatrical presentation is followed by discussion with a panel of experts, composed of neurologists, somatic therapists and other trauma experts. The Trauma Brain Project is designed to leave the audience with information, tangible resources and a heightened awareness of the need for a broader public discourse about this very important issue.
“...spectacular and powerful... skillful and thoughtful execution of
such sensitive content. I was riveted from start to end.”
(Sylvia Corcoran, LCSW, MCEd)
To date, The Trauma Brain Project has been performed at both CME and CEU events for the medical and psychotherapy communities, as well as for lay audiences, in Houston, Chicago and, most recently, New York City where award-winning actress Marsha Mason joined our cast. In October 2018, The Trauma Brain Project was part of The Bridge Initative's Her Voice reading series at the ASU Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale, Arizona.
We hope you will be inspired to join the conversation.
