Science has shown us that emotions and traumas get stored in the body—not just as memories, but as bodily sensations.

But while we know how important the body is in therapy, many therapists find it difficult to know exactly how to work with those trapped emotions and traumas.

...It can feel so daunting.

What if there were clear and effective ways of working with those trapped emotions that are stuck in the body, even if you're not necessarily a "body-based" therapist?

Hosted by renowned trauma therapist Janina Fisher, this interactive online summit brings together today's leading therapists who are at the cutting-edge of understanding what to do when working just with thoughts isn't enough....

An Invitation from Summit Host Janina Fisher...

As a clinician, you already know: Treating trauma is hard and exhausting work.

Its impact is complex and far-reaching, as we see from the pain caused by extended isolation and anxiety, as well as deep-rooted racial trauma.

But after years of research and exploration we have the knowledge to effectively heal trauma...

...And it starts by helping our clients transform past trauma imprints through physical experiences that directly contradict the helplessness, rage, and collapse that are part of trauma.

But how do you integrate body-based approaches with traditional talk therapies?

And how do you do this successfully through virtual settings in the age of social distancing?

Join me for this 2-day LIVE online summit, where you'll get insight from psychotherapy's top thought leaders and clinical experts, including Bessel van der Kolk, Stephen Porges, Pat Ogden, Gail Parker, Robert Schwarz and more….

Together, they'll show you the practical, evidence-based somatic strategies you need to improve therapeutic outcomes and how you can adapt their proven tools to your virtual practice.

Don’t wait to join me for this one-of-a-kind, live-streaming event and discover how you can integrate the body in psychotherapy to help your clients find sources of joy, creativity, meaning, and connection — all the things that make life worth living.

Stephen Porges
The Emergence of a Polyvagal-Informed Therapy: Harnessing Neuroception of Safety in Clinical Treatment
Stephen Porges, PhD, author of the Polyvagal Theory

  • Why deficits in the Social Engagement System are core features of psychiatric disorders

Pat Ogden
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Body Oriented Therapy Techniques for Trauma and Attachment
Pat Ogden, PhD, pioneer in somatic psychology, founder and Education Director of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute
 

The body’s intelligence is largely an untapped resource in psychotherapy. Yet the story told by the “somatic narrative”—gesture, posture, prosody, facial expressions, eye gaze, and movement—is arguably more significant than the story told by the words.

  • Why movement and posture are important targets of intervention
  • How to use mindfulness to tap the wisdom of the body (embedded relational mindfulness)
  • Using movement to process traumatic memory and support adaptive relationships

Gail Parker
A Mind-Body Approach to Race-Based Traumatic Stress Recovery
Gail Parker, PhD, author of "Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma"
 

The emotional wounds of race-based trauma land in the body. The resulting pain is not a cognitive experience and recovery cannot occur by talk therapy alone — in fact, talking about it can be re-traumatizing. 

  • How Race-Based Traumatic Stress and PTSD are different
  • The physiology of emotion
  • Using Restorative Yoga to support embodied awareness and enhance well-being

Janina Fisher
The Body as a Shared Whole: Using Visualization Techniques to Treat Dissociation
Janina Fisher, PhD, world-renowned licensed clinical psychologist, author and instructor at the Trauma Center, founded by Bessel van der Kolk, MD
 

Despite the feeling of being irretrievably damaged, all humans have a brain capable of visualizing or imagining experiences of acceptance, closeness, and comfort that evoke the same somatic sensations associated with early secure attachment. 

  • Why dissociation becomes a survival strategy
  • Integrating visualization tools to develop a felt sense attunement
  • Using somatic experience to foster internal attachment to clients’ most deeply disowned younger selves
  • Strategies to increase self-compassion for dissociated parts

Robert Schwarz, PsyD, DCEP, executive director of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology

Amber Elizabeth Gray
Trauma and The Moving Body
Amber Elizabeth Gray, PhD, originated a resiliency-based framework and clinical approach — Restorative Movement Psychotherapy and Polyvagal-informed Dance/Movement Therapy
 
The most essential ingredient for client co-regulation is therapist self-regulation. That's why this presentation will share embodied breath, somatic and movement practices that offer stabilization, grounding, and state-shifting for both client and therapist well-being.
