Somatic Skills for Therapists

If you’re not using your body you’re not using your whole brain.

Somatic Skills for Therapists Workshop   10am -6pm  Friday October 20 2017

The role and power of the body has been largely ignored in therapy,  yet all expression and life is felt and learned through our physicality.  By bringing consciousness to bodily experience we access the wisdom of the somatic self in the healing process and gain more resources for living. Through group, individual and partner explorations participants will  develop skills for themselves and their clients using techniques from various somatic disciplines. Workshop will be held in Olympia WA.

  • Participants will gain understanding of hierarchical nature of autonomic nervous systems and what that means for clients.
  • Participants will devise ways of infusing somatic interventions in their current therapy practices.
  • Participants will gain an understanding of sensory processing and its effects on emotion and relationships.

What past participants have said:

I gained specific knowledge along with practical skills that can to utilized in my current work in accessible ways.

I am leaving with techniques and knowledge I can bring directly into sessions with my clients.

I very much appreciated the many examples provided, including the experiential exercises. I’m looking forward to practicing myself.

Cost: $100 includes handouts            6 CEU’s available from WMHCA for additional $15.
