Current clinical models of practice based on attachment theory, trauma theory and neurobiology, emphasize the role of present moment experience in healing. The body contains the roots of past traumas in present time. When clinicians learn to pay attention to the body it enables them to deepen the therapeutic work and to provide experiences of healing.
In this workshop, Dr. Gladstone and Dr. Buckley will give a brief introduction to somatic psychotherapy as it augments and deepens clinical practice. They will focus on techniques that utilize mindfulness and body sensation and demonstrate the work using clinical examples. Participants will leave with a sense of how to integrate information from the body into clinical talk therapy.
