Learn live with Pat Ogden PhD, founder of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP), about how to apply the SP approach to your dissociative clients. You’ll explore the challenges, risks and rewards of working somatically, and discover how to make change for these clients a reality.Topics will include:
- How the body reflects dissociative parts of the self
- How the body can be an asset in helping these parts communicate and cooperate
- How phobia of the body can be overcome
- How to use posture, movement and self-touch to integrate parts of the self
Through a focus on parts work, easy-to-implement somatic interventions, and the theory of structural dissociation (and so much more), you’ll learn how to draw on the body to help heal trauma.
Part lecture, part Q&A, with slideshows and video footage of client sessions, you’ll take part in brief experiential exercises, and receive worksheets for use with your own clients.
