Chicago, IL
Share this event:

Conceived and written by Dayle Ann Hunt, Directed by Diaan Ainslee

"An incredible piece of dramatic writing ..."

"It was shocking to experience my reaction ... it hit such a deep core ...

About: New research is being conducted every day on the effects of PTSD and the ways in which trauma impacts the brain, particularly the right temporal lobe. What is still not being discussed is the fact that a majority of PTSD survivors are women. Given the high incidence of childhood sexual abuse, rape and domestic violence in our culture, this is not surprising; yet, as women and girls, many of our symptoms continue to be dismissed  unacknowledged, misunderstood, misdiagnosed....

... A deeply moving experience."

The Trauma Brain Project explores one womans experience  a decades-long journey through three different stages of life  of childhood seizures, bizarre symptoms, hidden trauma, PTSD and ultimate healing with somatic trauma release work.

... should be mandatory viewing for medical students.

Originally conceived as a creative educational tool for the medical community, the hope is that this unique theatrical piece might also help others  both women and men  to connect with their own unacknowledged stories, and maybe provide a context for more open discussion about this important issue. There are so many of us....

"... The Trauma Brain Project is a catalyst for change." Ann Marie Collier, MD
