Workshop Outline:

This day is a conference/workshop for counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists and allied health professionals who work with traumatised client populations and are seeking to explore a more body oriented focus both for understanding nervous system traumatic activation within the body and pathways towards safe interventions combining body awareness within talking treatments.

Key components of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy alongside concepts from other somatic perspectives will be utilised and delivered in the forms of slide talks, exercises and small experiential practice activities which are all aimed at uncoupling hijacking effects of past trauma patterns held in the body.

There will be some video or demonstration examples to focus in on key topics which include, three phases of treatment, pacing, regulation, body boundaries, somatic resourcing, mindfulness, meaning in trauma and resolution through completion of actions.
 Heightened awareness of how and why the body participates in the retention of disturbing, difficult and fixated memory patterns.
Body reading skills such as tracking for obvious and more subtle indicators of procedural memory and autonomic activation. 
Making clear distinctions between trauma and developmental physical/physiological activation.
Learning a range of important somatic resource interventions to help recover safety and stabilisation equilibrium for clients. 

CPD Certs will be emailed to participants after attendance at the Event
