Traditional methods often fall short in addressing traumatic stress.
Watch renowned somatic and expressive arts therapy and traumatic stress experts, Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, and Amber Elizabeth Gray, PhD as they discuss how we can address these impacts with clients, and ourselves, through innovative sensory-based, somatically oriented, expressive arts approaches.
Explore the following fundamental sources of repair and recovery with an emphasis on supporting self-regulation and co-regulation to promote “as safe as can be”:
Repairing and resolving paralyzing fears, shame, loneliness, uncertainty, and disempowerment require methods that go beyond traditional talk therapy. These impacts demand that therapists address the body’s experiences through approaches that touch the senses and encourage individuals to communicate distress in non-verbal, implicit ways.
Expressive arts psychotherapy is an integrative form of trauma treatment that capitalizes on action-oriented, sensory-based and somatic approaches. In this dynamic course, participants will learn why these approaches are not only an alternative to “talk only.”
Take back to your clients the key practices of movement, sound, rhythm, image making, enactment, and play!
You will also gain a deeper understanding about how this form of intervention is essential to repair and restore self in clients suffering from complex trauma as a result of interpersonal violence, disrupted attachment, and other adverse experiences.
