This three-module program will focus on understanding the effects of trauma during early development. We will present techniques for working with both children and adults, including recognizing developmental trauma in its adult disguises. By understanding how trauma affects the developing child, we can better understand our adult clients' symptoms of early trauma and be more effective in our work with them.
This course is intended as an integrated somatic approach, which includes touch-based methods for supporting and restoring clients’ resilience and self-regulation.
There will be a combination of lecture/demonstrations and experiential practice of the specific somatic techniques presented.
In this three-module series, we will cover the following material:
Following is a list of topics that will be addressed in each module. We use an experiential and emergent design model for teaching, which means that topics evolve from the group exercises and discussion. The following gives an approximate order for the material presented, but there will be variation for each group experience.
Knowledge and experience in a bio-physiological model of trauma resolution, such as Somatic Experiencing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, or the Hakomi Method, is required. Completion of the Touch Skills Training, or Somatic Experiencing Advanced year, or the equivalent, is a necessary foundation for this course.
