Without interventions that incorporate somatic awareness and movement, many therapeutic approaches are limited in their ability to help clients fully release the impact of traumatic events. In other words, we cannot simply think our way out of traumatic activation. This seminar with Dr Arielle Schwartz, which is part of the nscience Somatic Psychology Series, is aimed at psychotherapists, psychologists and counsellors across modalities, who are interested in learning how to integrate somatic psychology interventions into their work with clients.

Full Course Information

The approaches explained in this webinar will allow you to work effectively with clients who have experienced single incident traumatic events or prolonged trauma exposure.

This experiential seminar with Dr Arielle Schwartz focuses on a mind-body approach to trauma reprocessing; specifically, through the integration of somatic psychology into cognitive behavioral therapies such as cognitive processing therapy (CPT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. Together, these approaches allow us to work effectively with both episodic and recurring trauma.

Through case vignettes and examples, Dr Schwartz explains that unless we tap into the potential offered by somatic awareness and movement, our therapeutic attempts at helping clients fully release the impact of traumatic events may often be thwarted. In other words, we cannot simply think our way out of traumatic activation. Through the therapeutic interventions shared in this seminar, we will learn to help clients discover new movements that allow them to resolve the wounds of their past. This body-centered approach to care is integrated into cognitive behavioral therapiesto allow clinicians to address preverbal trauma memories, attachment trauma and somatization symptoms. Specifically, we will:

  • practice at least three interventions for working with somatic symptoms in trauma therapy
    • Holding patterns and Character strategies
    • Sequencing
    • Titration
    • Pendulation
  • understand how to work with preverbal memories by attending to somatic sensations
    • Implicit Memory
    • Attachment Trauma and the Body
    • Attending to Legacy Trauma
  • understand neural networks and the formation of traumatic memories
  • comprehend neuroplasticity and trauma recovery
  • describe an integrative model for trauma reprocessing, especially looking at Somatic Repatterning
    • Working with Numbness
    • Interventions to Enhance Embodiment
    • Addressing to Chronic Pain
