Description

Traumatic experiences are remembered not just in words but as speechless terror, overwhelming emotions and body sensations, self-destructive impulses and intractable depressions.

What were once discrete traumatic events have been “wired” into the brain and body as automatic reactions to present experience disconnected from any context that could explain them. Despite the best efforts of the client and therapist, the world still feels unsafe decades after the trauma.

Join international trauma expert, author, and presenter Janina Fisher, PhD, and learn techniques drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-centered therapy for the treatment of trauma. Dr. Fisher artfully weaves lecture, demonstration video and experiential exercises to provide you with new strategies to treat the often baffling treatment challenges presented by these traumatized clients.

Easily integrated into traditional psychotherapy models, this way of working enables both you and your client to feel a greater sense of hope and mastery as you address the challenges of trauma treatment.
