Engaging the resources of the embodied mind
Portslade - Brighton & Hove
There is growing recognition especially through advances in interpersonal neurobiology, attachment and trauma research that many of the issues that clients bring into therapy are somatically embedded. As therapists, we, therefore, need to be able to engage with the nonverbal and embodied aspects of the client’s experience and help raise somatic awareness within the client.
This master class offers an opportunity for clinical inquiry into how to work safely and effectively with the body in counselling and psychotherapy. This will be especially relevant to counsellors/psychotherapists with no formal training in a body-oriented approach or those who have done some CPD training in this area but would like to deepen their clinical practice.
