1035-18:  Trauma-Based Disorders and the Cardio-Neural Mechanisms Involved in Dysfunctional Self-Regulation

Trauma-based disorders are debilitating syndromes impairing self-regulation (SR). A psychophysiological-informed SR model provides a conceptualization of how trauma behaviors manifest as a self-serving instrument for creating a predictable environment based on acute, albeit chronically-dysregulating, regulation. Such a model offers a frame for engaging trauma behaviors with novel objective measures and treatments.
