Course Content

Dr Art O'Malley explores the intricate aspects of trauma and its treatment, focusing on QEMDR psychotherapy. Traumatic memories are imprinted in the limbic system, affecting the thalamo-cortical binding process. QEMDR engages the prefrontal cortex to make sense of traumatic experiences, often leading to a tingling sensation, possibly indicating the development of new neural networks. The response to trauma involves altered brain wiring, with hyperarousal triggering flight responses and dissociative responses inducing freezing or numbing. Disorganized attachment patterns may emerge, impacting movements and emotional regulation. The therapy seeks to integrate traumatic memories at the gut-brain, heart-brain, or head-brain levels. Future perspectives highlight the goal of normalizing traumatic memories through QEMDR, resulting in post-traumatic growth and increased resilience. The therapy's success is measured by reduced dissociative symptoms and enhanced overall well-being, emphasizing the potential for healing at the quantum level.

  • The imprinting of traumatic memories in the limbic system and its impact on information processing.

  • The role of QEMDR psychotherapy in engaging the prefrontal cortex and developing new neural networks.

  • Text length of individual points can be shorter or longer depending on your needs

  • Different responses to trauma, including hyperarousal and dissociative reactions, and their effects on brain wiring.

  • The emergence of disorganized attachment patterns from traumatic experiences and their influence on movements and emotional regulation.

  • The integration of traumatic memories at various levels—gut-brain, heart-brain, or head-brain—through QEMDR therapy.

  • The goal of normalizing traumatic memories to safely file them in episodic memory without triggering intense emotions.

  • Measurement of therapeutic success through reduced dissociative symptoms and improved well-being.

  • Future perspectives on post-traumatic growth, mental toughness, and resilience facilitated by QEMDR.
