Tulasi Jordan, LCSW SEP
In order to assist clients in healing and developing an expanded sense of self, therapists are increasingly integrating the body and somatic experience into treatment. Often, however, therapists have neither a sufficient theoretical map nor the techniques needed to do so. Drawing on both Eastern and Western wisdom, participants will be given exercises to use with clients that will assist in accessing the body's wisdom to help in the healing process. When a client can develop a relationship with his/her body that is resourceful, he/she builds the capacity for increased affect tolerance, improved emotional regulation and resilience.
-- Participants will be able to list the potential benefits of integrating somatic techniques into treatment.
-- Participants will learn and discuss how somatic interventions fit into treatment goals for his/her clients.
-- Participants will learn how to apply and integrate these techniques into traditional psychotherapy.
