Fundamentals of Somatic Experiencing®: A Polyvagal Perspective Zoom meeting
May 25, 2020 - May 26, 2020
This two day introductory workshop will provide an understanding of trauma and the nervous system from the perspective of Somatic Experiencing® and the polyvagal theory. Students will learn about the activation cycle, incomplete self-protective responses, ways to explore the body’s story with clients, the importance of tracking states and titration, and how to begin the process of renegotiating boundaries with clients. The workshop will include a combination of theory and practice, including lecture, group discussions, and hands-on experiential learning. Caveats and ethics around the use of body-oriented activities will also be discussed. This workshop is offered with the license and approval of the Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute, but does not count towards the formal process of training in Somatic Experiencing®
