November 3 & 4, 2016
Somatic Experiencing helps people find new, empowered body experiences to contradict the patterns established by trauma. Together, we will explore clinical insights from Body-oriented psychotherapy, and recent findings in the neurosciences, on how the brain and body deals with emotional information, providing a foundation for effective therapeutic action.

In an Unspoken Voice, How the Body Releases Trauma
When we experience trauma, the body freezes in time in a highly activated, incomplete biological response. It becomes a snapshot of our unsuccessful attempts to defend ourselves in the face of threat, injury, and loss. This is demonstrated with presentations, and videos.
1:30-3 p.m. & 3:15-4:45 p.m.
The Somatic Experiencing Method (SEM)
The method uses education and awareness of body sensations (interoception) to help people reestablish the body’s natural rhythm, recover inner regulation and wholeness, and return to a state of empowerment, harmony and compassion. This is demonstrated with educational presentations, videos, and role plays.

Spirituality and Trauma for Human Connection
The SEM method is demonstrated while integrating the spiritual framework of the individual to enhance human connection and support.
1:30-3p.m. & 3:15-4:45 p.m.
Special Considerations in Treating Trauma
Special clinical insights are explored in relation to healing trauma, not only for the individual but also for integrating family, and other connections. Methods to deal with resistance, fear and anxiety are demonstrated for compassionate and effective treatment.
