Surviving the Aftermath: A Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Approach to the Wounds of War
MAY 4, 2018
Current neuroscience research indicates that insight and understanding may have only a limited influence on the operation of subcortical processes disrupted by traumatic and relational wounds of war. A body-oriented approach is called for that can facilitate alternative ways of perceiving reality, address non-verbal symptoms and resolve the implicit effects of these wounds. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy meets this need by integrating cognitive and somatic interventions, emphasizing body awareness, practicing new actions, and building somatic resources. The approach will be illustrated through lecture, videotaped excerpts of therapy sessions, and brief experiential exercises.
