In this workshop, we will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance. 

We will:

  • Focus on using breathing and grounding to resource the client, becoming more aware of our own breathing and expanding it in the process.
  • Learn ways to help clients repair the disconnect between self and others—and between parts of the self—that have been created by shaming, inappropriate behavior or abuse.
  • Explore how to keep our clients more present in the room with us and counter over- verbalization, dissociation and freezing.
  • Learn techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi) and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).
