    CEU INFORMATION: not offered

    Learn Body Up! Co-Regulation exercises. Hone your co-regulatory skills. Present cases for case consultation. Expect to connect with other practitioners in breakout rooms, doing nervous system to nervous system exercises. Body up! Co-Regulation exercises are relational, regulatory, diagnostic and therapeutic. Learn to use all four aspects.

    Case Construction: What needs to happen so that a person can show up authentically and take care of themselves in relational space? Practice case construction from a nervous system point of view.

    Co-Regulation: When and How: Gauge when to start and how to introduce the exercises. Explore deepening your connection with clients online or in-person.

    Efficient Meltdowns: The exercises offer efficient ways in and out of deep emotional experience. Having reliable ways to cut through shame and rebuild connection supports people in building trust and going to their emotional edges without getting overwhelmed or dissociative.

    Co-Regulatory Stance as Therapist: Cultivate being more intentional and transparent about power dynamics. Our clients need us to be in charge of maintaining a stable base. They also often need the experience of a co-regulatory human peer, so their nervous system can learn what is possible. Then they have a chance of building co-regulatory relationships into their lives. Oppression is always rooted in hierarchy. This work rewires our brains for healthy, embodied peer relationships.

    Build Capacity: Resistance is just the nervous system showing us what it cannot tolerate. Offer clients the experience of staying present with more intensity and complexity. It makes life and therapy go better.

    Enliven the Therapist: Modeling relationships that are good for both people has to be authentically good for the therapist. Contract for Co-Regulation: Offer clients, especially solo regulators, the option to learn co-regulation. Explicitly empower the client’s adult self. Authorize yourself and clients to initiate co-regulation exercises.

    Presenter Bio - Beth Dennison MA in MFT, SEP, LMT

    Beth brings decades of teaching, psychotherapy and study of neuroscience to designing learning experiences that rewire our brains for connection and co-regulation. She is a pioneer whose professional and personal life has positioned her to make a much needed contribution to remedy the loneliness, isolation, dysregulation and failure to cooperate that plague modern western culture. Beth’s handbook, Body Up!: Nourish Your Nervous System and Your Relationships with Body to Body Co-Regulation, is a seminal work in the fields of embodiment and applied interpersonal neurobiology. With the pandemic, she has developed some very effective ways of doing Body Up! Co-Regulation online.

    Her background and education include Somatic Experiencing, Marriage and Family Therapy, Bodywork and Peer Counseling. She completed her Somatic Experiencing Practitioner training (SEP) with Peter Levine in 2003 and assists in SE Advanced trainings.

    Beth has a lifelong history of cultivating embodiment and a high capacity for clear, organized thinking. She has applied this rare and useful combination to healing developmental trauma, finding efficient antidotes to shame, and creating effective strategies to rewire our brains for co-regulation and embodiment, in therapy and in life.

    At the Center For Body Up! Coregulation, Beth puts new information from neuroscience to the test of embodied practice. Her workshops on Polyvagal Theory and Co-Regulation teach participants how to tune in to their own nervous system and connect generously and appropriately with others. She creates safe environments for people to reveal themselves and learn to co-regulate. She maintains a private practice, teaches and supervises practitioners.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    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?

    Workshop Description

    This live webinar (recorded for encore viewing) will present a new way of understanding and treating trauma and addiction. The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model provides a paradigm shift from the traditional disease approach  to an embodied understanding of trauma and its underbelly, addiction, through the lens of the autonomic nervous system.

    Addictions are seen as the bodies’ attempt to emotionally regulate by acting as propellors that facilitate shifts in our nervous system. The model Integrates Gendlin’s Felt Sense process with Porges Polyvagal theory, enabling us to appreciate addictive behaviors as adaptive responses to maladaptive environments. The model provides a generic framework that can be integrated into any therapeutic modality. The webinar will include a description of how to apply the model with clients through participant exercises, case examples and live demonstration.


    Summarizing Main Points of Workshop

    •    Introducing the journey over forty years of clinical experience in developing the Felt Sense Polyagal Model. Including: Critiquing current top down ways of treating addiction and the need for a bottom up approach.

    •    Describing the evolution of the model, three graphic versions as they developed. First Model: Felt Sense Experience: Feminist, Trauma informed model includes description of Gendlin’s Felt Sense and Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy

    •    Third Model: The Felt Sense Polyvagal Model to treat Trauma and Addiction. Description of Polyvagal theory as it integrates into the model.  Addictions are seen as propellors of neurophysiological state changes in the autonomic nervous system. Introduction of the two graphic versions of the model, client and clinician. 

    •    Application of the Model with Clients. Description of the felt sense experience of each state and how to promote healing through neural exercises such as Focusing Oriented Strategies. Use of Three Circle Practice and working in Groups.

      DAY OF EVENT: Mar 19, 2021

      EVENT DESCRIPTION

      Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, introduces us to what she calls “furry auxiliaries” as brilliant additions to your interactive sessions with children and adults and all ages in between.

      In this online workshop with friend and colleague Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we show and tell how to use stuffed animals, puppets and dolls as amazing projective tools that support and educate the people we work with for warm ups, go to the heart of the issues in the session or create beautiful closures as a session concludes.

      The workshop is scheduled 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday, March 19, using the online Zoom platform.


      You will learn:

      -How dolls, puppets and stuffed animals assist people in deepening people’s understanding their strengths, defenses and vulnerabilities.

      -How concretization supports the spontaneity and creativity that is so valued in the psychosomatic method. How objects can demonstrate the containing role of the observing ego, as it is known in the Therapeutic Spiral Model of psychodrama and the teaching of neurobiology.

      -How objects can assist in sparking play and fun as well as addressing trauma and pain in a deeply profound way.

      -You will be able to take away your learnings for the next day or next week and use them immediately – and learn that what seems like child’s play is actually the touchstone of contemporary neurobiological-based psychotherapy and practice, bringing spontaneity and creativity into your sessions.

      Audience
      This experiential three-hour program is suitable for mental health professionals, educators, creative arts therapists, life and wellness coaches, play therapists, physical health professionals, nurses, administrators, first responders, alternative practitioners, youth and group leaders, human resources specialists, clergy, addiction professionals and others.

      CE credits and psychodrama hours

      EVENT DESCRIPTION

      Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy catalyzes powerful change by bridging the gap between yoga and mind-body psychology. This form of mind-body therapy uses yoga postures, hands-on assists, and therapeutic dialogue to facilitate growth and healing. Clients are gently guided through a meditation that brings them to a state of self-awareness and inner presence, from which profound wisdom can arise. The result is clear insight and a practical, action-based approach to lasting life change.


      Course Objective

      Gain deep understanding of the Phoenix Rising Method™ and its paradigm of life change based on the intersection of Yoga, Buddhism, Psychology, and Neuroscience.


      Who can benefit from this program:

      Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers, Mental Health Professionals, and others who want to empower students and clients to create more powerful, meaningful, and fulfilling lives in both classroom and practice environments.


      What to expect:

      • Learn the distinction between present-centered awareness (direct experience) and narrative referencing, and why this distinction is essential from a neuroscientific perspective.

      • Learn skills to engage others in direct experience through the body so that they can immerse themselves into a profound state of awareness.

      • Acquire tools to engage others in integrated mind-body practices.

      • Gain understanding of the process of change. Explore the interaction of the body, breath, mind intellect, and emotions.

      • Acquire tools for body-mind integration that leads to life changing action and an understanding of how to apply this approach in your own classes or private practice.

      Healing Shame in Couples: Undoing the Fear/Shame Bind, the Main Barrier to Love, Attachment and Connection

      A Workshop for Therapists and other Helping Professionals with Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon PhD, SEP

      Online using Zoom – Live and Recorded

      2 Saturdays: April 24, 10am–6pm and May 1, 10am–6:00pm Pacific Time

      Cost: $395 full price / $375 with full payment by March 19 / Special price for interns 13 CE credits available – $40 fee (See website for details) CAMFT CE provider #134393

      The more we care about each other, the more vulnerable we are to shame. Intentionally or unintentionally, we poke each other in the tender spots. Couples can shame each other multiple times a day, often without realizing what is happening. This can become a highly reactive cycle, preventing both people from getting their basic safety and attachment needs met. The more we become afraid of losing connection or not getting our needs met, the more likely this becomes. And shame can distort how we hear each other; the received message may have little to do with the message the partner is attempting to send.

      In this workshop we will explore the blame/shame game couples can fall into and learn how to help them stop shaming each other and to work together to create a secure base and heal the wounds of the past.

      We will:

      • Look at some of the many subtle ways shame can be triggered.

      • Explore shaming moments with great care so we can teach our clients how to avoid shame-based reactivity.

      • Learn the gentle art of counter-shaming and how to avoid triggering feelings of inadequacy in yourself or in another person.

      • Talk about, have compassion for and heal past shaming incidents within the relationship.

      • Help each person to understand, have compassion, and be there for each other—to learn to face the shame dragon together, to avoid shaming in the present and heal shame from the past. There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

      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

      Shame is an embodied belief that "something is wrong with me." Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is helpful for therapists to work with shame somatically. In this workshop, explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance. 

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


      EVENT DESCRIPTION

      Melting the Shame Freeze – Building Resilience, Resources, and a Return to Safety and Connection


      A workshop for therapists and other helping professionals

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


      Saturday, May 15, 10am-6pm & Saturday, May 22, 10am-5:45pm PDT

      Online via Zoom – Live and Recorded


      $395 full price / $375 with full payment by April 9 / Special price for interns

      13 CE credits available – $40 fee (See website for details)

      CAMFT CE provider #134393


      Shame is an extraordinary combination of a primary emotion and a state of freeze. It is an embodied belief that "something is wrong with me." Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is important that therapists work with shame somatically. 

      In this workshop, you will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance. You will learn how to prevent somatic counter-transference and avoid taking on the client's physical shame patterns.


      You will: 

      • Focus on using breathing and grounding to resource the client, becoming more aware of your own breathing and expanding it in the process. 

      • Learn how you can resource yourself so that you don't fall into somatic counter-transference and take on the client's physical shame patterns. 

      • Explore how to keep your clients more present in the room with you and counter over-verbalization, dissociation, and freezing. 

      • Learn techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of Somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing®), Stephen Porges (Polyvagal Theory), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi), and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).


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

      Presenter Bio:

      Michael Lee, MA, Dip.Soc.Sci, Dip.T., C-IAYT, E-RYT500, Founder and Dean of Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy, grew up in Australia, where he worked as a teacher and behavioral scientist in the field of personal and organizational change before leaving for the USA in 1984. He wanted to learn about the effectiveness of yoga and Eastern practices for changing lives and so immersed himself at the Kripalu Center (then an ashram) in Massachusetts for two years. This began a career in yoga and yoga therapy with a focus on mental and emotional health now spanning 36 years. Michael founded Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy in 1986 based on his learning and integration of yoga and elements of contemporary psychology which is now supported by neuroscience.


      Michael is the author of two books, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy—Bridge from Body to Soul and Turn Stress Into Bliss. He is also a contributing author to the American Psychological Association published book Beyond Talk Therapy: Using movement and expressive techniques in clinical practice. Michael was a keynote speaker at SYTAR for the International Association of Yoga Therapists in 2016 and the opening keynote speaker at Yoga Australia Conference in 2018, as well as a regular presenter at other major conferences.
