Neurobiology has proven to us that we must “come to our senses” when it comes to restoring mind and body after trauma. Expressive arts therapy is a somatically-based approach that addresses not only through brain-wise methods, but also the body’s sensory experience of trauma in ways that no other methods can.
This presentation provides you with the basic concepts necessary to apply expressive approaches to help clients access embodied awareness and to effectively address experiences that leave individuals stuck in terror, isolation, and shame. Participants will specifically learn how to integrate simple rhythmic, movement-oriented, image-making, and other techniques that will help traumatized clients begin to once again feel safe, calm, and enlivened.
