- We have created the most economical path to learning Somatic Resilience and Regulation. Our training format reduces time away from home and practice, supports student learning, and builds a community of Healers.
- All lectures are recorded and available online for you to review on your schedule. The videos are available 30 days prior to the Skill Building Experience and through the end of the month following the experience.
- We provide 4 Q&A sessions for the class prior to the Skill Building Experience where you and your classmates can ask questions and problem solve over zoom.
- We facilitate a 3 day Skill Building Experience either onsite or if you are unable to travel, through a distant learning format. These 3 days are filled with live demonstrations of the work as well as your opportunity as a student to experience and learn the work first hand through triads. There are also several opportunities for sharing your experiences with other students and ask questions.
- Following the training we support students reaching out for their own sessions, consultations, or more supportive education through consultation.
- The training is facilitated through 2 modules instead of our normal 3 module format. Each Module is 1.5 of the normal module format.. Modules do need to be completed in order without exception. After you complete both modules, you can be listed on the "co-regulating touch" referral network at no charge.
- Students often times find that repeating modules at half-price is very beneficial for their learning and their nervous system.
Knowledge and experience in a bio-physiological model of trauma resolution, such as Somatic Experiencing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, or the Hakomi Method, is required. Completion of the Touch Skills Training, Transforming the Experience-Based Brain, the Somatic Experiencing Advanced year, or the equivalent, is a necessary foundation for this course.
Following is a list of topics that will be addressed in each module. We use an experiential and emergent design model for teaching, which means that topics evolve from the group exercises and discussion. The following gives an approximate order for the material presented, but there will be variations for each group experience.
- Overview of developmental trauma and its impact on physiological regulation
- Four components of attachment and their relationship to survival
- Introduction to attachment patterns: secure, anxious, avoidant, disorganized
- Overview of the relationship between attachment patterns and survival
- Understanding how your attachment pattern shows up in the therapy room
- How neuroception and interoception affect attachment and traumatic stress responses
- Looking at attachment and survival through the lens of the Polyvagal Theory
- Introduction to the Window of Tolerance and its relationship to management strategies
- Shame and its inhibitory impact
- Common behavioral and physiological management strategies induced by early trauma
- Intro to ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) study and its importance in treatment
- Somatic techniques for supporting regulation and safety
- Somatic/touch methods for supporting resilience and restoration of social engagement
- Auto-regulation, co-regulation and self-regulation
- Closer look at anxious and avoidant attachment patterns and their relationship to regulation and survival response
- Introduction to neurosequential development in developmental traum
- Window of Tolerance, and the “Faux Window” management strategies commonly used
- Adaptive/maladaptive responses: threat response behaviors (immobilization, mobilization, social communication or engagement, submission), physiological dysregulation
- ACE study: indications of dysregulation and lack of resilience
- Understanding when social engagement is too much for your client
- Applying somatic approaches to the repair of shame
- Introduction to working somatically with low tone physiology (dorsal system)
- Supporting increased regulation and capacity for social engagement/bonding
- Closer look at disorganized/disoriented attachment patterns
- The overlap between disorganized attachment patterns and complex trauma
- Somatic methods for working with severe dysregulation and highly sensitive survival physiology
- Understanding the re-regulation that’s necessary in working with disorganized attachment and complex trauma
- Somatic adaptive behaviors and their impact on the ANS and overall regulatory functions
- Working effectively with the dorsal vagal system to promote re-regulation and greater access to the ventral vagus and social engagement system
- The dorsal system in relation to somatic over- and under-coupling
- Traumatic transference and counter-transference
