“The experience of the felt sense gives us a backdrop for reconnecting with the animal within ourselves" (Levine 1997. p.86)
“(…) we all have the innate capacity to heal our traumas” (Levine, 1997, p.32)
Trauma can impact the way we experience touch. In our practice or in our own lives, we might experience the interrupted reaching-out movement (freeze), the triggers (fight) or the avoidance of touch (flight). In this experiential workshop, we will practice therapeutic tools that aim to transcend these challenges in an embodied way. The work is inspired by trauma-informed and body-oriented/somatic practices.
In this embodied workshop, we will practice:
· Feeling at home in our own body
· Being mindful of our own embodied presence
· Identifying and working through counter-transference and projective identification through embodiment
· Embodiment work to attune to strengths and areas of growth
· Attuned/mindful touch
· Exploring the use of touch in emotional regulation
· Undoing retroflection, supporting the body to reach out
· Movement for emotional regulation
Nature of Group: Open to Various Practitioners, including psychotherapists, social workers, psychologists, care workers, psychiatrists, counsellors, guidance teachers, teachers, youth workers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and more.
I look forward to seeing you again face-to-face in this workshop!
Wishing you well and thank you for your service to the community!
