Integrating Mind-Body Techniques into Talking Therapies with Janina Fisher

April 17 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Learn how new neurobiologically-informed somatic techniques can be easily integrated into talking therapies

In surviving trauma and neglect, individuals are left with a host of easily re-activated physiological and emotional responses without an adequate memory record.

Detached from the events that caused them, overwhelming emotions and impulses, intrusive images and memories, chronic expectations of danger, or numbing and disconnection communicate the felt sense that the individual is still in danger, that “it” is still not over.

During this workshop, our teacher, Janina Fisher, will review recent neuroscience research that explains how traumatic experience becomes embedded in both mind and body, extending the trauma far beyond the original events.

New neurobiologically-informed somatic techniques directly address the non-verbal memories and physiological responses and can be easily integrated into talking therapies, offering renewed hope to victims of abuse.

After this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify the physiological effects of childhood trauma and neglect
  • Summarize the role of the body in exacerbating the effects of trauma
  • Describe 3 somatic interventions that increase client’s capacity to tolerate emotion and activation

This workshop includes a video demonstration and experiential activities to help you apply these teachings in practice.

If you can’t join live, don’t worry – this workshop will be recorded for you.
