    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    The NARM Therapist Training is an advanced clinical training designed to enhance the skills of professionals who work with developmental trauma. The training is intended for mental health practitioners with an active practice so the material presented in each module can be applied and developed. Graduate trainees and interns actively seeing clients are welcome to apply.

    Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, and may include a personal interview with a NARM faculty member.

    NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is an advanced clinical training for mental health and somatic practitioners who work with developmental trauma. NARM addresses relational and attachment trauma by working with early, unconscious patterns of disconnection that deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and relationships. Integrating a psychodynamic and body centered approach, NARM offers a comprehensive theoretical and clinical model for working with developmental trauma.

    NARM draws on psychodynamic models such as attachment and object relations theory, somatic models and character structure approaches, in addressing the link between psychological issues and the body. Working relationally in the present moment, and within a context of interpersonal neurobiology, NARM offers a new approach of working relationally that is a resource-oriented, non-regressive, non-cathartic, and ultimately non-pathologizing model. Grounded in mindfulness and contemplative spiritual practices, NARM supports a non-western orientation to the nature of personality. Learning how to work simultaneously with these diverse elements is a radical shift that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma and supporting personal and relational growth.

    In the NARM Practitioner Training, you will learn:

    The different skills needed to work with developmental versus shock trauma; when and why shock trauma interventions may be contraindicated in working with developmental trauma.

    How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions, such as toxic shame and guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, and other psychobiological symptoms.

    How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.

    When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of developmental trauma.

    How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.

    A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.

    Presenter Bio: Brad Kammer, LMFT, LPCC, SEP, NMT is a NARM faculty trainer. Brad has studied under his mentor Dr. Laurence Heller for nearly 20 years and is a NARM Practitioner and Consultant. Brad is also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Consultant and Instructor. Brad began his career as a Humanitarian Aid Worker in Asia which introduced him to personal and collective trauma. He became passionate about supporting individuals and communities in the transformation of trauma. Brad has since focused his work on the integration of Somatic Psychology, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and wisdom from Spiritual Traditions and Traditional Cultures. Brad lives in a small town in Northern California with his family where he is a Somatic Psychotherapist, College Professor, and International Presenter on Shock and Developmental Trauma.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    A high percentage of clients in outpatient treatment and a higher percentage of inpatients report histories of neglect, trauma, and/or attachment failure. In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

    The Level I Training presents simple, body-oriented interventions for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

    SHORT SUMMARY:

    This training prepares and authorizes you to teach the Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening.

    Presented by: Judith Blackstone

    Class Schedule:

    Classes will be on Fridays, 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern:
    October 2, 16, 30,
    November 20,
    December 4, 18,
    February 5, 19,
    March 5, 19, April 2, 9

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    The Realization Process is a method of embodied personal and relation healing, and nondual spiritual awakening. In this method, nondual realization is based on deep contact with the internal space of one's body. Through subtle inward attunement, we realize ourselves as fundamental, unified consciousness, pervading our own form and our environment as a whole. In this way, we discover an authentic, quality-rich experience of our individual being at the same time as we transcend our individuality.

    This training includes the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, as well as specific practices for cultivating the subtlety, openness, luminosity and steadiness of nondual realization. Sitting, standing and walking meditations will be taught as well as practices for relaxation, concentration, vitality, and clear, direct perception. Subtle breath and energy practices will be taught for opening the subtle core of the body and for realizing oneself more completely as the pervasive expanse of fundamental consciousness. Participants will learn how to perceive and help people overcome individual obstacles to nondual realization, and how to accelerate results in meditation practice for both beginning and advanced practitioners.

    The training is also an opportunity to deepen your own realization of nondual, fundamental consciousness, through intensive practice of the Realization Process meditations.

    Format: 12 classes live on Zoom with Judith Blackstone. Weekly practice with a partner assigned from within the training group. Monthly practice with someone from outside of the training group. Eleven brief written reports/questions responded to by Judith via email.

    Presenter Bio:

    Judith Blackstone, PhD, developed the Realization Process, a method of embodied psychological and relational healing and nondual spiritual awakening. Judith teaches the Realization Process world-wide and online, in workshops and teacher certification trainings. She is the author of Trauma and the Unbound Body: the Healing Power of Fundamental Consciousness, Belonging Here, The Enlightenment Process, The Intimate Life, and The Empathic Ground. An audio series of the Realization Process practices is available from Sounds True. She is retired from forty years as a licensed mental health counselor in private practice.

    Integral Somatic Psychology™ Professional Training - Austin, Texas
    Module 1: The Physiology of Emotions

    Integral Somatic Psychology™ is a new paradigm in body psychotherapy based on the emerging neuroscience of embodied cognition, emotion, and behavior. It offers all therapies including all body psychotherapies a complementary modality for reducing treatment times and improving cognitive, emotional, behavioral, relational, and spiritual outcomes; through developing a greater capacity for a comprehensive range of emotions including the often overlooked but always present sensorimotor emotions.

    Presented by: Dr. Raja Selvam


    EVENT DESCRIPTION: MODULE 1 • The Physiology of Emotions

    Working with Emotions with Greater Efficiency through the Science of the Physiology of Emotions and Principles of Energy Psychology.

    This course has been designed to help improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes in all therapies on the basis of emerging evidence-based theories of embodied cognition, emotion, and behavior in neuroscience. We will study the findings on how cognition, emotion, and behavior depend not only on the brain but also on the body and the environment; how the three are inter-related in the physiology of the brain as well as the body and its relationship to the environment; and how emotion and the body’s involvement and capacity for emotion are important for improving cognition, emotion, and behavior. We will also study the older and newer findings on the physiology of emotions in depth in relation to the physiology of self-regulation. We will study and practice clinical strategies that can potentially help all therapies to improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes in their work by involving the body more in a broader range of emotional experiences (primary, secondary, and always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions). In addition, we will also study how energy psychology can be used to further improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes through emotional embodiment.

    In the first module of the course, the focus will be on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the musculature of the legs, the arms, and the head and neck areas in the body. In addition, as an optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, introductory work with two layers of the quantum level subtle body, metaphorically named ether and air, will be presented.

    Module 1 Course Content:

    1. Basic principles of Integral Somatic Psychology: Increase in capacity for emotion through its embodiment as the core clinical strategy in ISP. Working with psychological, physiological, and energetic defenses against emotion to expand and deepen the emotional experience in the body and to build a greater capacity for tolerating it. Scientific evidence for the effectiveness of emotional embodiment in improving cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes.

    2. Working to improve self-regulation as well as emotional regulation across the three layers of the physical body:

    • The muscular system governed by the somatic nervous system
    • The viscera governed by the autonomic nervous system
    • The central nervous system and structures that surround it.

    Presentation of a model of regulation with seven easy-to-learn flow patterns to regulate the physiology during cognitive, emotional, and behavioral work without compromising or eliminating the very psychological experience one is working with, a common problem in some body-oriented and energy-oriented approaches in psychology.

    3. The role of the body in psychological experiences: The seven basic dynamics such as constriction/flaccidity and hyper/hypo arousal through which the three layers of the individual physical body are used to generate as well as defend against different psychological experiences such cognition, emotion, and behavior. Theoretical and empirical evidence for these common dynamics from scientific research in academia and clinical research in body psychotherapy traditions.

    4. Affect theory: Theories of affect and affect development. Levels or types of affect. Affect and psychophysiological disorders. Relevant research.

    5. Choice of tools: Awareness, intention, imagination, breath, sound, movement, self-touch, touch of another, bodywork, and energy work as clinical tools that can be used appropriate to the therapist’s training, preference, and licensure context. Understanding of the relative advantages, disadvantages, and limitations of each tool.

    6. The role played by the muscular system in generating as well as defending against psychological experiences: The psychological functions of the muscles of the legs, arms, head, face, and neck areas. Relevant research and techniques for working with muscles during psychological work.

    7. Introduction to the role of the energy body in psychological experiences. The heart center, the air element, and their physiological and psychological functions. Working with the zones of the air element in the physical body to bring about greater balance between cognition and emotion in psychological work using the basics of Polarity therapy.

    ISP Professional training is a 12 day professional training in three 4-day modules, with the option of trying Module 1 before committing to Modules 2 and 3.

    A Workshop for Therapists and Other Helping Professionals 

    The child lives on! Though we may develop adult bodies and think our childhood is long behind us, somewhere inside the child is still alive, deeply influencing our thoughts, words and actions. In this workshop, we will teach you how to help your clients reestablish a healthy relationship with their inner child—how to both listen to and talk to that sensitive, creative, and essential part of us.

    Presented by Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP

    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    The child lives on! Though we may develop adult bodies and think our childhood is long behind us, somewhere inside the child is still alive, deeply influencing our thoughts, words and actions. It may be that the most important relationship we have is the relationship we develop with our inner child. In this workshop, we will teach you how to help your clients reestablish a healthy relationship with their inner child—how to both listen to and talk to that sensitive, creative, and essential part of us.

    Using Imaginal techniques, we join and explore the world of the child. We learn how to work effectively and add a healthy coach or caring inner parent to repair the shame-ruptured parts from neglect or simply misattunements. We say hello to the part that wants to eat healthy and the part that wants ice cream. And say hello to the bully and the scary places. We learn to listen deeply and provide the champion or protector that the child didn’t have. We get to explore and re-enact scenes from childhood when a person was shamed and repair or replace what they wish they could have said.

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: The School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL) is a multi-level somatically focused program about human life which helps you take your own life and work to a new level of depth and presence. SoULL’s primary task is to connect human helpers, healers and creatives with wisdom teachings sourced from the natural world so that they first recognize themselves and others as natural and find radical applications of this awareness. We live in much greater separation from Nature in our time than any other time in history. We seldom recognize ourselves as being actually a part of it. We fear change and death to extraordinary degrees, and resist the natural changes of our bodies, psyches or relationships. SoULL is a remedy for this distress that powerfully changes student’s outlooks on their own life and how professionals approach their human service work.

    Level 1 - Pilgrim SoULL is a 100+ hour program that runs (generally) from spring to fall. A primary goal of Pilgrim SoULL is to teach students to recognize the deep, energetic patterns within the life of the human being regardless of culture or race. It teaches how life energy naturally shapes us through every stage of bodily life, including its end. I call this our common human “Life Language”. It presents radical insights, not only on individual human life, but on relationships, community, and the deep, intrinsic connection between them. In its essence, Pilgrim SoULL is an initiation which teaches about birth, death, all that is between and after, the body, energy, how we grow, change, connect, release, die and love.

    Level 1 takes place over three residential weekends with distance learning and group dialogue in between.

    Weekend 1: THE NATURE OF BEING HUMAN is offered twice this year, in two locations. See our additional advertisement for registration about these events:

    STONY POINT CENTER in Stony Point, New York: April16-19, 2020

    DEKOVEN CENTER in Racine, Wisconsin: May 14-17, 2020

    Presenter Bio: Jeanne Denney is a transpersonal and somatic psychotherapist, educator, a hospice worker, healer, and author of The Effects of Compassionate Presence on the Dying. She works in many venues to help people fearlessly embrace a life which includes aging and dying. Jeanne has spent years at bedsides, contributed pioneering ideas to somatic psychology, death and grief work, and been deeply involved with creating the Art of Dying projects in New York City. Her insights on energy and the body through aging, illness, and dying are derived from a wide lens of human experience and deep understanding of our mortal journey.

    SHORT SUMMARY: The Comprehensive Training has been revised to cover more material than in previous trainings. We still have two modules, but Module One has an additional weekend now. So, we now convene for 19 weekends total instead of 18.

    Presented by: Gregory Gaiser, Hakomi Trainer, PC, Organizational Consultant

    Module One: Dates: Oct. 9, 2020 – June 27, 2021

    Module Two: Sept. 10, 2021 – June 12, 2022

    Structure:

    The Comprehensive Training has been revised to cover more material than in previous trainings. We still have two modules, but Module One has an additional weekend now. So, we now convene for 19 weekends total instead of 18.

    Module One, offers a thorough grounding in the theories and techniques of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology. Module Two presents an advanced level of the work including a developmental model of character structure, basics about trauma and the body, increased practice session time, feedback for practitioners (strengths and growing edges), ethical issues and support, and guidelines for certification as a Hakomi Practitioner.

    For Whom

    This training is for professional therapists and counselors, healing arts practitioners, coaches, students of counseling and psychotherapy, interns, educators, clergy and people transitioning into the field of body psychology who want to learn the method in its entirety.

    Prerequisites

    A two day Hakomi workshop or class with Hakomi Institute SW faculty

    A completed application including recent photo and resume or vitae

    A non-refundable application fee of $85.00

    An in person interview with HSW faculty

    In some situations, the Institute may require additional information from an applicant, an additional interview with the HSW faculty or the completion of specific additional learning.

    What You Will Learn:

    In this hands-on, experiential training, you’ll learn how to:

    Energize and strengthen your work using Hakomi’s inspiring principles like mindfulness, nonviolence, organicity, mind-body holism and unity

    Use mindfulness to identify and transform hidden core beliefs driving self-defeating behavior

    Gain greater self-awareness by mindfully studying your own limiting reactive patterns

    Work from a compassionate, nonjudgmental state that helps clients feel safer and go deeper

    Apply unique and innovative methods for melting client resistance and overcoming impasses in your work

    Description of Module One:

    Module One includes in-depth coverage of the Hakomi principles, Hakomi theories, maps and models as well as specific techniques. Training weekends include a mix of didactic material, experiential exercises, discussion, movement/embodiment exercises, group maintenance time and supervised practice times.

    Description of Module Two:

    Module Two offers a developmental theory of character including specific stages of development and learning tasks associated with each stage. A general understanding of Attachment Theory is included. In addition, students are taught basics about traumatic activation: how to recognize it, how to resource someone dealing with it and when to refer to more specialized body-centered practitioners.

    Module Two also includes more advanced practice and integration of the Hakomi method.

    Course Requirements:

    In addition to regular attendance, there are monthly reading assignments and monthly peer study groups. Since proficiency with the method comes through practice, it is highly recommended that students arrange practice sessions with appropriate volunteer clients. Upon graduation, those meeting the above requirements will receive a Certificate of Completion. Qualifying as a Certified Hakomi Therapist or Certified Hakomi Practitioner is competency based. This usually involves advanced supervision from the Hakomi faculty including video session review.

    Coming Home to the Body: A five-class online course with the Jung Platform

    SHORT SUMMARY:

    Learn to embrace your body, nourish your soul and walk your path in the world.
 This five-class course illuminates a pathway to sensing your body, accessing your inner wisdom, and integrating lost parts of your soul through conscious embodiment. We will explore bodily experience in the process of healing and transformation, and how vital it is to therapeutic practice, daily life, and the wellbeing of the planet.

    Presented by:
    Tina Stromsted, PhD, BC-DMT, RSMT/E, Jungian Analyst

    “My soul, where are you? Do you hear me? I speak, I call you – are you there? I have returned, I am here again.” – C.G. Jung

    What does it mean to live a vibrant, embodied life in our turbulent, challenging world? How can we rediscover the sacredness of our bodies and the Eros in everyday life? When we don’t listen to our bodies, we feel disconnected and lost in the world. As our loyal “soul-friend”, the body expresses its wisdom in each moment.

    This course explores how we can come home to our bodies, fostering a feeling of safety, resilience, and ease, while opening a connection between body, psyche, and spirit. Embodied active imagination facilitates this descent into the inner world of the psyche through bodily experience, natural movement, and creative arts. 

    Tina Stromsted integrates Jungian Depth Psychology, Somatics, Dance/Movement Therapy, and creative arts therapies. Through presentation, case examples, embodied exploration, and practical tools, this course can help you to reconnect with deeper instinctual resources. Join Tina as she guides you on a path of learning how to recognize vital messages from your body, and how to integrate lost parts of yourself through the practice of conscious embodiment.

    This course is ideal if you want to:

    • Feel more deeply connected to your body, psyche, and soul.
    • Explore the relationship between your body, healing, and transformation.
    • Expand your capacity for empathy and compassion through resonating more effectively with yourself and others.
    • Gain practical tools and perspectives to continue your embodied journey. By the end of this course you will
    • Enhance your awareness of and improve your relationship with your body.
    • Learn how to listen when your body ‘talks’.
    • Recognize polarities in the body & psyche and develop an awareness of the Shadow.
    • Understand Jung’s Active Imagination approach and how to embody it through movement.
    • Deepen your connection with others and the world around you through embodied experience.
    • Learn how to integrate conscious embodiment into your daily life.

    Course schedule: 
    Classes 1-4 are prerecorded so people can tune in at their leisure, and then we’ll meet together Live for Class 5 on November 10th at 5pm PT

    Class 1 – Saturday, Oct 10, 2020
    We begin by exploring the importance of the body in healing and transformation. Tina introduces some of the pioneers who integrated the body with Jung’s Depth Psychology, examines the role of ego-inhibitions, and demonstrates how we access deeper parts of ourselves through embodied, creative explorations. She shares a story of a journey of embodied individuation and offers a guided experience.

    Class 2 – Saturday, Oct 17, 2020
    Let’s awaken and increase body awareness by getting to know the ‘languages’ of the body. Tina provides case examples on how to work with small and unconscious movements, recognizing body signals and guiding us into our bodies.

    Class 3 – Saturday, Oct 24, 2020
    Beginning with a story about how Jung discovered Active Imagination, we discuss the four steps of the Active Imagination approach and how to integrate our learnings into everyday life. We also hear an inspiring story about how Jungian Analyst Marion Woodman used natural movement and dream symbols to heal from her kidney disease and “addiction to perfection”. We conclude with an introductory exploration of active imagination in the body.

    Class 4 – Saturday, Oct 31, 2020
    Here we gently dive into the practice of Active Imagination in Movement (Authentic Movement). We explore how one of Jung’s early patients embodied this process and how Mary Starks Whitehouse pioneered the Authentic Movement approach. We discuss how dreams, images, symbols, and body symptoms can be used as starting points for movement. Tina demonstrates different polarities in the body and the importance of recognizing the Shadow. Then, we are guided in our own experiential movement journey, beginning with music and ending with drawing.

    Class 5: Live Webinar – Tuesday, Nov 10, 2020 at 5pm PST
    Our final class reflects on the journey we’ve taken together throughout this course and emphasizes the importance of coming home to our bodies. Please bring your questions, reflections, and experiences! This is an opportunity for general Q&A, discussion, and further deepening of our embodied experience. How can you integrate these learnings into your daily life?

    Integral Somatic Psychology Demo - Chicago, IL
    Presented by: Dr. Raja Selvam

    This is demo is followed by a weekend workshop. 

    How to work with the effect of trauma on development and attachment with greater efficiency through emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance

    The workshop will demonstrate how to improve outcomes and shorten treatment times in working with attachment issues through: 1) a differentiated understanding of how developmental and shock trauma can affect developmental tasks in stages of early childhood development (existence, need, autonomy) and cause variations in a person’s attachment style (avoidant, ambivalent, disorganized); and 2) the tools of emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance from Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™).

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: The workshop is offered in one 3-day workshop. Optional demonstration day offered ahead of workshop (October 16).

    WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

    How an insecure attachment style (avoidant, ambivalent, or disorganized) shows up as specific adulthood difficulties depends on the stage of childhood in which the developmental or shock traumas affected our relational capacities and the specific developmental tasks affected in that stage of development.

    This three-day workshop will describe and demonstrate how to work with adult relationship difficulties differentiated in terms of attachment styles and various developmental tasks in at least three early stages of development using clinical strategies of inter-personal resonance and emotional embodiment from Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™), a modality based partly on emerging paradigms of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive neuroscience and psychology.

    • Learn to work with avoidant, ambivalent, and disorganized styles of insecure attachment and their variations that are often in the form implicit sensorimotor emotional memories through emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance.

    • Learn to identify and work with the different developmental tasks or functions in at least three early stages of childhood development (existence, need, and autonomy) the wounding of which by developmental and shock traumas determine specific vulnerabilities driving the insecure attachment styles.

    • Learn how to access and work with a wider range of emotions especially sensorimotor emotions in relation to attachment and relationship from the very first session with a client.

    • Learn how to help clients work through and develop a greater capacity for extremely difficult emotional experiences having to do with attachment and relationship faster by using the body as container and regulator.

    • Learn how to improve your ability to regulate your client emotionally through embodied attunement, a very important component of effective attachment work, through specific skills of inter-personal resonance.

    • Learn about how the emerging paradigms of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive neuroscience and psychology can help improve outcomes and shorten treatment times in all therapies including body-oriented modalities such as Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy®, through embodiment of a greater range of emotions from the very first session with clients.

    In the three-day workshop, Dr. Raja Selvam will cover all of the above topics. The format of the workshop will be lectures, live demonstrations with workshop participants (at least two per day), questions and answers, and short, guided dyadic and group exercises to make the workshop experiential for the participants as well as to manage activation among them. To impart as much knowledge as possible during the short three-day workshop and to accommodate participants with varying levels of expertise, there will be no lengthy practice sessions among participants.

    Experiential Therapy Training Program - First Year Cohort

    Incorporating the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and indigenous practices, students of SSBP's integrative certification program gain a strong foundation from which to organize their approach to clients. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening the client's perception to the greater world around them as well as to their own unique offering which I call "Referencing From the Self".

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: As a therapist, I consider myself a tracker, scouting reaction patterns that are experienced on all levels of our physiology. At SSBP, we hone our tracking skills to understand the original needs of our defensive patterns, discerning the reasons behind the current form. Meeting these needs in their original energetic allows for new perceptions and experiences to arise. Through patient observation and awareness we learn specific interventions in a combination of individual and group therapy. We also teach how to gently open the physical system to dissolve the limitations created through holding patterns developed over decades.

    As an Herbalist and Ceremonialist the program is truly an integrative mind-body therapy training. I bring teachings on basic health and its effect on our well-being, and the power of the Imaginal Realm and its role in healing. Graduates will gain skills to assess from a body-oriented viewpoint based on the tradition of Core Energetics, to organize information and back up their choice of interventions through the treatment plan over time. An additional Practitioner's Skills track is available for attendees who do not already work in the profession in order for them to achieve Certification.

    Class Topics

    Tracking ~ Developing Heart Perception ~ The Yes and the No ~ Body-Reading ~ Core Energetics and The Work of Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen and John Pierrakos~ Character Structure and its Application in the 21st Century ~ The Segments of the Body and Their Impact in Perception & Life Patterns~ Leading Safe Process Groups ~ Herbs for Mental Health ~ Working From Within the Imaginal Realm and Its Affect On Neuroplasticity ~ Ceremony for Health and Healing ~ Current-Diagnostics in a Larger Context ~ Somatic Therapy Approaches ~ Counter-Transference in Body-Therapy ~ Working with Dreams and Imagery ~ Trauma & it's Treatment ~ Working With Our Many Internal "Parts" ~ Clearing Spaces Internally and in the Environment ~ Interpersonal Work in the Group Setting ~ Movement to Impact Body Structure ~ Referencing From the Self

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    A high percentage of clients in outpatient treatment and a higher percentage of inpatients report histories of neglect, trauma, and/or attachment failure. In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

    The Level I Training presents simple, body-oriented interventions for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

    Use of Touch in Psychotherapy: Law & Ethics Workshop

    SHORT SUMMARY
    Join us for this dynamic & interactive workshop and earn 6 CEUs to fulfill your law and ethics requirement. Saturday, October 24, 2020

    Presented by Diana Guest, LMFT


    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    Most people leave their clinical training believing that it is illegal to touch a client. Most of us receive little to no education about the value and ethics of touch. It’s not illegal to touch your clients, it’s just important to know the impact and be trained in how, when and where to touch your clients.

    "If a therapist decides to touch a given patient, s/he must do so in a thoughtful manner and must be willing to accept responsibility for the patient’s interpretation of the touch. Likewise, if the therapist decides not to touch, there must be a similar willingness to accept responsibility for the meanings that the patient will assign to the absence of a natural form of human contact.” (The Therapist, March/April 2011, Guest & Parker).

    Objectives: identify four uses of touch in their private practice; describe three types of touch useful in telehealth practice; identify three types of boundary considerations pertaining to touch and; identify three countertransference issues that arise with the use of touch. Intended for licensed & pre-licensed mental health professions & master & doctoral-level clinicians, physicians & psychiatric nurses.

    Trauma, Development, and Attachment Workshop - New York, NY
    Presented by: Dr. Raja Selvam

    How to work with the effect of trauma on development and attachment with greater efficiency through emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance

    The workshop will demonstrate how to improve outcomes and shorten treatment times in working with attachment issues through: 1) a differentiated understanding of how developmental and shock trauma can affect developmental tasks in stages of early childhood development (existence, need, autonomy) and cause variations in a person’s attachment style (avoidant, ambivalent, disorganized); and 2) the tools of emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance from Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™).

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: The workshop is offered in one 3-day workshop. Optional demonstration day offered ahead of workshop (October 23).

    WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

    How an insecure attachment style (avoidant, ambivalent, or disorganized) shows up as specific adulthood difficulties depends on the stage of childhood in which the developmental or shock traumas affected our relational capacities and the specific developmental tasks affected in that stage of development.

    This three-day workshop will describe and demonstrate how to work with adult relationship difficulties differentiated in terms of attachment styles and various developmental tasks in at least three early stages of development using clinical strategies of inter-personal resonance and emotional embodiment from Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™), a modality based partly on emerging paradigms of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive neuroscience and psychology.

    • Learn to work with avoidant, ambivalent, and disorganized styles of insecure attachment and their variations that are often in the form implicit sensorimotor emotional memories through emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance.

    • Learn to identify and work with the different developmental tasks or functions in at least three early stages of childhood development (existence, need, and autonomy) the wounding of which by developmental and shock traumas determine specific vulnerabilities driving the insecure attachment styles.

    • Learn how to access and work with a wider range of emotions especially sensorimotor emotions in relation to attachment and relationship from the very first session with a client.

    • Learn how to help clients work through and develop a greater capacity for extremely difficult emotional experiences having to do with attachment and relationship faster by using the body as container and regulator.

    • Learn how to improve your ability to regulate your client emotionally through embodied attunement, a very important component of effective attachment work, through specific skills of inter-personal resonance.

    • Learn about how the emerging paradigms of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive neuroscience and psychology can help improve outcomes and shorten treatment times in all therapies including body-oriented modalities such as Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy®, through embodiment of a greater range of emotions from the very first session with clients.

    In the three-day workshop, Dr. Raja Selvam will cover all of the above topics. The format of the workshop will be lectures, live demonstrations with workshop participants (at least two per day), questions and answers, and short, guided dyadic and group exercises to make the workshop experiential for the participants as well as to manage activation among them. To impart as much knowledge as possible during the short three-day workshop and to accommodate participants with varying levels of expertise, there will be no lengthy practice sessions among participants.

    Short Summary:

    This workshop will be a creative exploration on returning home to the body and to the heart of what matters in your life through movement and art-making.

    Event Description: “To dance with life and not against it, to move responsively instead of reactively, this is a way to make spirit visible in the world.”

    This workshop will be a creative exploration on returning home to the body and to the heart of what matters in your life through movement and art-making. There is a potent connection to be made between our physical, emotional and imaginative experiences. As we make this connection, movement can serve as a metaphor and a narrative that reveals, expresses and transforms. Encountering old stories, we discover artful ways to re-story ourselves, bringing new vision to the life themes that matter to us.

    When clients get stuck in shame, the most powerful way to help them get unstuck may be to activate their imagination. In the Imaginal Realm, logic and time are fluid and flexible. What actually happened can be explored and changed. What was stuck in the cognitive realm can be reexamined and shifted. Shaming situations from the past can be revisited and resolved. In this workshop, we will utilize techniques from Drama Therapy, Focusing, Expressive Arts Therapy, Jungian active imagination processing and Hakomi. We will explore the critical voices and/or the childhood scenes that are still driving the internal shame dynamic in the client.

    You will learn to help clients:

    • Externalize shame so that it can be worked with directly.

    • Work with roles, parts and shame-based introjects.

    • Access strength, resilience, inner resources and role repertoire.

    • Find a deeper understanding by working with objects you already have in your office.

    • Utilize imaginal techniques to give the shame back, so that it stays in the Imaginal Realm.

    Once the shame is worked through in the Imaginal Realm, the client can interact with the world differently.

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

    Benefits: A meaningful adventure while building solid skills

    The CARE training is a transformative 3-year journey to practice essential life and therapeutic skills. It is a precious opportunity to:

    -learn to facilitate a humanistic (Rogerian) and systemic somatic approach for 1:1 and group therapy.

    -Enjoy a gentle, pleasurable and solution-centered methodology which focuses on positive psychology while also caring for more problem- and symptom-centered perspectives.

    -Develop an understanding of the most recent clinical research in psychotherapy and its implications for therapeutic practice with individual and groups.

    -Be supported by a caring community of practitioners and teaching team and experience the fundamental role of systemic processes for resilience.

    -Practice self- and systemic regulatory skills and sense the bio-psychosocial nature of the nervous system functioning.

    -Train contemplative abilities of mindfulness, compassion and gratitude with playfulness.

    -Participate in and help co-create grass-roots spaces for reflection and practice.

    -View the experiential therapeutic process in action with live demonstrations and discuss its process of healing, empowerment and awakening.

    -Develop an understanding of the most recent clinical research in psychotherapy and its implications for therapeutic practice with individual and groups.


    3 Axes of impact


    The CARE training is a highly experiential and engaging process oriented towards 3 axes of impact:


    Belonging: “Together we go further.” Being a part of a vibrant self-organizing community offers radical possibilities to deepen a sense of belonging and skillful engagement. Together, with a diverse and committed group, it is possible to creating positive and empowering visions of the future.


    Experiential transformation: “The way is in the heart - follow it and be transformed by it.” The training offers different activities, ranging from individual work to small group dynamics to community processes. They all aim to reach deep psychobiological and relational patterns to free up one’s capacity and love for a more connected and purposeful life.


    Skill development: “Give a friend a fish, and you feed them for a day. Teach them to fish, and you feed them for a lifetime.” By personally experiencing the different training activities in a safe environment, one will develop transdiagnostic therapeutic skills for 1:1, group and community settings, transferable to one’s life. Participants, at their own pace, will learn practical abilities for to support durable healing, self-reliance and creative living:


    The CARE training is a professional program, and certified graduates will be registered on the NeuroSystemics online directory.


    Is the CARE Training for you?
