*How our latent survival behaviors of fight, flight, and freeze condition the brain to seek pleasure and avoid pain. *Recent neuroscientific research on the nature of addictions and trauma.

*Substance and Process addictions as neuro-adaptive survival strategies. *How patterns of emotional repression modeled by adults in childhood contribute to increased chances of developing an addiction.
