Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Developmental Injury

FEBRUARY 28, 2020 - NOVEMBER 8, 2020

Due to COVID - 19, this training schedule will be revised. Please check back, and reference your emails for the most up - to - date information.

Research reveals the powerful impact that early childhood adversity, attachment disruption, and chronic stress play in our clients' current lives. Early attachment experiences and the environment shape biology, brain development, somatic structures, perception, meaning making, and patterns of relating. This learning sits deep within, in our implicit and procedural memory. Difficulty managing relationships, depression, anxiety, somatic complaints, and addiction have roots in these early experiences and the resulting adaptations.

This training equips therapists with the skills, maps, and foundational principles needed to understand and address the challenging issues of developmental meaning, attachment patterns, emotional processing, and adaptive strategies to engage the wisdom of the body for healing and growth, and employ effective somatic interventions in a neurobiologically consistent manner.

This training provides the theoretical foundation to approach developmental injury from three avenues: working with adaptive strategies, child states of consciousness, and the therapeutic dyad.

Participants will learn skills for working somatically and relationally with limiting patterns and core injuries that their clients' present.

Continuing Education Credit: This training is co-sponsored by The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute and The Institute for Continuing Education. The training offers a total of 113.50 credited contact hours.
