When traumatic stress experiences occur early in our lives, they tend to reverberate through our ongoing development in a way that later traumas most commonly do not. These early traumas may cause us to develop coping strategies, somatic habits, and physiological responses which have trauma as their foundation and their primary organizing impulse. The symptoms associated with the development of such trauma structures can mimic other complex disorders, such as syndromes (e.g. auto-immune disorders).
This class is designed to provide practitioners with greater understanding and insight into the dynamics and interplay of the survival impulses and related coping strategies that underlie symptoms of complex trauma. We will also practice touch methods for helping our clients unravel their somatic habits arising from trauma and return to more functional equilibrium and capacity for self-regulation.
Education and experience in a biophysiological model of trauma, such as Somatic Experiencing, is required.
