The Lost Piece: Reclaiming the Body after Abuse

Teach your clients to gain a sense of their body as a safe place to live. Working gradually and incrementally, we will use Somatic Intervention to repair the body and the sense of self which were compromised by abuse. Enable your clients to contain their internal experience, build trust, tolerate intimacy and approach pleasure.

Part 1 (or other somatic training) is a prerequisite.

Location

Machon Pardes
29 Pierre Koenig St

Course Objectives

After this course, students will be able to:
Identify those clients who shouldn’t be invited to “go inside” their body.
Create enough safety to make therapy possible for them.
Resource clients who are particularly difficult to resource.
Track the body in session, identifying dissociation when present.
Suggest somatic “body building” exercises for each client.
Regulate physiological activation in client, and in self.
Interrupt habitual patterns, mindfully, to create new neural pathways.
