Event description

Description

Trauma Center - Trauma Sensitive Yoga - a treatment intervention for complexly traumatized youth and adults

with David Schouela and Emily Lapolice

Trauma Center - Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TC-TSY) is an adjunctive treatment for complex trauma that focuses on giving clients an opportunity to practice noticing body sensation (interoception) in the context of a safe relationship based on an invitational approach to yoga forms with no physical assists. TC-TSY was recently listed in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). This workshop will be delivered in a lecture format with some optional chair based yoga and time for Q & A.


At the end of this event, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the theoretical underpinnings of Trauma Center - Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TC-TSY)

2. Explain how TC-TSY differs from other forms of yoga

3. Describe how TC-TSY has been successfully applied in various treatment settings.
