Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Developmental & Relational Injury - Online
OCTOBER 14, 2022 - OCTOBER 28, 2023
Research reveals the powerful impact that early childhood adversity, attachment disruption, and chronic stress play in our clients' current lives. Early attachment experiences and the environment shape biology, brain development, somatic structures, perception, meaning making, and patterns of relating. This learning sits deep within, in our implicit and procedural memory. Difficulty managing relationships, depression, anxiety, somatic complaints, and addiction have roots in these early experiences and the resulting adaptations.
This training equips therapists with the skills, maps, and foundational principles needed to understand and address the challenging issues of developmental meaning, attachment patterns, emotional processing, and adaptive strategies to engage the wisdom of the body for healing and growth, and employ effective somatic interventions in a neurobiologically consistent manner.
This training provides the theoretical foundation to approach developmental injury from three avenues: working with adaptive strategies, child states of consciousness, and the therapeutic dyad.
Participants will learn skills for working somatically and relationally with limiting patterns and core injuries that their clients' present.
NOTE: This course includes elements that are live and interactive. To participate, you must have a computer with internet connection, a microphone, and a webcam. Portions of the training will be recorded. Meeting live-online requires a strong and reliable internet connection.
