A Body-Based Approach
When clients have experienced early relational injuries and disruptions, it can be hard to address their unconscious, non-adaptive responses using traditional talk therapy approaches. This workshop will show how to integrate Somatic Experiencing (SE) and other body-based approaches, including hypnotherapy to address the early survival responses that keep clients with childhood relational injuries from forming deeper bonds in the present. In this workshop, you’ll learn to:
- Track nonverbal constriction, freeze responses, shut down, anxiety, and boundary issues to help clients become more aware of them
- Use elements of SE to enhance resonance, slow down and deepen the therapy process, and enhance the ability of the nervous system to shift from disorganization to organization
- Identify and work with trauma-based “coupling dynamics,” non-adaptive unconscious patterns that can negatively impact clients’ ability to connect with others
Continued with workshop 505.
