Objectives for this 1.5-hour digital workshop:
A body-oriented approach to clients who have experienced war and other violence, can facilitate alternative ways of perceiving reality, address non-verbal symptoms and resolve the implicit effects of these wounds.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy guides this by integrating cognitive and somatic interventions, emphasizing body awareness, practicing new actions, and building somatic resources.
Help clients build resilience by embodying the somatic resources presented in this complimentary webinar.

A: SP creator, Dr. Pat Odgen, established Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute (SPI) in 1981. Until 2019, SPI almost exclusively relied on word of mouth to spread awareness of training in SP. With growing demand for effective trauma therapy, we realized the principles and methods of SP needed to reach further. We began offering a variety of programs online, so more people than ever before can affordably and conveniently begin learning SP.
A: SP uniquely includes the body in therapy as both a source of information and target for intervention. By addressing the physical as well as the psychological, SP can support a deep, effective and unified approach to healing.
The immediately-useful knowledge you will gain in this course comes from Dr. Ogden’s years of study and clinical experience--she developed SP based on what works.
