About somatic psychology training courses for therapists

The fact that the term “somatic” means “relating to the body” should indicate to almost any observer what somatic therapies are centred on: the connection between the mind and body.

Whereas typical psychotherapy tends to involve the practitioner solely engaging their client’s mind, a somatic therapist believes in the importance of a holistic healing approach that intervenes in the feedback loop continually running between the mind and the body.

The focus of somatic therapy sessions, then, is on the release of pent-up trauma that may have become “trapped” in the body.

But this emphasis on the mind-body connection – which is still a fairly new concept in the West, compared to its longstanding prominence in Eastern medicines and philosophies – can be invaluable for addressing a broad range of problems, such as stress, anxiety, depression, addiction and grief.

In keeping with a therapeutic approach that is all about addressing and relieving how negative feelings can manifest in the body, somatic treatments can also be helpful for issues that may seem mainly physical, such as chronic physical pain and digestive disorders.

As a prospective or current practitioner in somatic therapy, you are likely to be thankful for training courses and events that explore the latest findings, developments and techniques in this fascinating field. That, in turn, will help you achieve better results with your clients.

Why choose nscience?

Many of the most important elements of best practice for today’s somatic therapists are addressed by our latest training courses in this category. At the time of typing, we have informative training options covering the following subjects:

Various video courses and webinars are on offer from us, covering different aspects of best practice for today’s therapists who are working with – or wish to work with – clients suffering from depression. At the time of typing, our depression-related training routes cover subjects such as the ones listed below:

  • Interventions to enhance embodiment in trauma treatment
  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and somatic psychology for chronic pain and illness
  • Preparing clients for trauma reprocessing
  • Somatic repatterning
  • Online therapy sessions, and how the somatic psychology model can be adapted to them
  • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) for trauma and attachment issues

Psychotherapists, psychologists and counsellors working across modalities are likely to learn things that could enhance their own practice if they make use of our video courses and offline events related to somatic psychology and associated treatments.

While our seminars, webinars, workshops and conferences at nscience are aimed at currently qualified and active mental health practitioners, they also consist of content that non-therapists will probably find insightful and instructive.

So, whatever your present status or involvement in somatic therapy and/or neighbouring disciplines may be, you are likely to learn something from our latest courses that will guide you when making decisions on your future training needs.
