Description of Presentation:
From a neurobiological point of view, complex trauma is “kept alive” in a client’s body through implicit memory and habitual procedural patterns. Sensorimotor psychotherapy is an approach to treating trauma that blends theory and technique from cognitive and dynamic therapies with straightforward physical interventions. Change happens through 1) helping a client discover how she procedurally organizes experience and 2) experimenting with changing how that experience is organized. Through mindfulness, clients learn the relationship between their physical sensations, body postures and movement, beliefs, and emotions in the here-and-now of therapy. The “how” of tracking the body, asking mindfulness questions that help clients focus on their somatic experience, and introducing new physical behaviors will be covered in this presentation. Also, somatic resources that promote nervous system regulation will be covered.
1) Able to describe implicit and procedural memories of trauma.
2) Able to integrate mindfulness based questions into a plan for treatment that challenges procedural learning.
3) Able to describe somatic resources that promote nervous system regulation
