-Learn how trauma is “remembered” in the body through implicit or body-based memories
-Explore the concept of the Window of Tolerance (Siegel, 1999) and how it informs working with a client’s arousal, the resolution of trauma-based symptoms and its use in psycho-education to normalize and pay attention to body-based experience
-Discover practical and specific mindfulness-based tools for working with the body
-Understand how traumatic memories and/or developmental trauma patterns are integrated and the importance of mindfulness in this process
If you are curious about mindfulness and somatic approaches to trauma within Social Work practice I invite you to join me for this webinar.
Neuroscience research is showing us how the body holds the story of psychological trauma and traumatic attachment. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a body-based talk therapy that synthesizes the latest research to offer practical interventions for working gently, collaboratively and skillfully with the body to resolve trauma-based symptoms.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy was developed by Pat Ogden, PhD, informed by the works of Ron Kurtz and the Rolf method, and enriched by contributions from the research on attachment, trauma, neuroscience, mindfulness and dissociation.
You will learn about how post-traumatic stress is exacerbated by implicit body-based memories and autonomic nervous system dysregulation and how trauma-related conditioned learning can be addressed with mindfulness-based techniques and physical interventions that characterize this therapeutic approach.
This presentation will be interactive and examples will be given along the way to illustrate the concepts. I look forward to meeting you online and exploring this topic together.
