Learn new somatic techniques that will benefit even your most dissociative clients 
‘The language of the body can be the key to helping dissociative parts heal’
Pat Ogden, PhD 
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.

If you’re a therapist or counsellor who treats dissociative disorders, and you’d like to learn new approaches, this workshop is for you! We also welcome psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, body workers, counsellors, allied mental health professionals, and health & wellbeing professionals.
 Additional topics include:  
Importance of body-oriented psychoeducation  
The risks and liabilities of going ‘too far’ and ‘not far enough’
Titration strategies to work at the regulatory boundaries of the window of tolerance
SP’s directed mindfulness to mitigate triggering the body
Why Sensorimotor Psychotherapy?   
Trauma first and foremost leaves its imprint on the body, yet, for many reasons, the body has historically been omitted from therapeutic inquiry. SP can help clients release the hold and effects of traumatic experiences, and draw upon the wisdom of their bodies in ways that enrich their lives.
