Level II: Emotional Processing, Meaning Making, and Attachment Repair

NOVEMBER 4, 2016 - MARCH 11, 2018

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy identifies two general kinds of interrelated psychological issues: developmental and traumatic. Developmental issues result from disturbed early attachment relationships that lead to limiting beliefs about oneself and the world. Post-traumatic stress disorder results from overwhelming experience that remains unintegrated. Early attachment disturbances can lead to a wide variety of adult relational problems, especially when combined with unresolved trauma.

Level II of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program illustrates how traumatic, attachment, and developmental issues influence one another and how to provide effective treatment given their inevitable intertwining. In this training, research from the attachment and neuroscience fields provides the theoretical foundation for Sensorimotor Psychotherapy interventions and practices that address the effects of suboptimal and/or traumatic early attachment.

The Level II Training consists of approximately 180 contact hours.
