Using memory reconsolidation to help people who’ve experienced trauma


Alun Parry introduces the process of ‘memory reconsolidation’ to help people who have experienced trauma and who struggle on a day-to-day basis with various nervous system responses – flashbacks, anxiety, hypervigilance, sleep disturbance and other trauma-related manifestations.

At the heart of this workshop is the understanding that trauma responses make sense in relation to what has been experienced challenging the narrative that labels them as irrational or disordered.

Despite being entirely rational and understandable though, Alun Parry suggests that trauma response does not have to be a long-term reality and in fact can be eliminated via a process known as ‘memory reconsolidation’.

The workshop, (based on his book “How To Remove Trauma Response: A Guide To Memory Reconsolidation for Therapists & Coaches”) will give participants an understanding of the process of memory reconsolidation as well as practical techniques for its effective application in therapeutic or supportive settings, as well as for personal healing.

Alun will guide participants through the neuroscience-informed steps necessary for the brain to reconsolidate traumatic memories, equipping them with a practical roadmap to facilitate lasting change.

MITUK’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for fundamentally re-thinking theory and practice in the field of mental health in the UK, and promoting positive change. We believe that the current diagnostically-based paradigm of care has comprehensively failed, and that the future lies in non-medical alternatives which explicitly acknowledge the causal role of social and relational conflicts, abuses, adversities and injustices.
