Description

Trauma Center, Trauma Sensitive Yoga: A 20-hour workshop for yoga teachers and mental health professionals.

Presented by: Anna Kharaz, LMHC, TCTSY-F

Hosted by: Rachel Oren - Trauma Sensitive Yoga | www.yogaregisha.co.il


For the first time in Israel!

This September, join Anna Kharaz LMHC, TCTSY-F (bio below) for an immersive 20 hour workshop focusing on Trauma Center, Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY), its use, methodology, and application as a compassionate tool for healing. This event is for social workers, yoga teachers, mental health clinicians, educators, and community workers who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-person impact of complex, intersectional trauma.


What is Trauma Center, Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY)?

Trauma Center, Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY), is an evidence-based intervention that has been rigorously tested and proven to effectively support individuals with complex trauma, and is the only yoga-based practice accepted by *SAMSHA and NREPP. It was developed in the United States and today is utilized with children, youth, and adults around the world (including Israel).

TCTSY has been the subject of several books written by David Emerson, including "Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga: Reclaiming Your Body" and "Trauma Sensitive Yoga: Bringing the Body into Treatment". TCTSY was also featured in a chapter in "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel van der Kolk.

*Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration; National Registry of Evidence-based Practices and Programs


What will you learn?

Together we will investigate the core components of the practice and process of TCTSY, and how they relate to any anti-oppressive & trauma sensitive work. Yoga teachers will gain trauma-informed knowledge and skills to enhance their current teaching, and mental health professionals will gain new body-based tools they can offer their clients.

No prior yoga experience is necessary. TCTSY is open to all people regardless of age, gender identity, religious observance, race, ethnicity, body type and physical ability.

All participants will receive an official letter of completion. This 20 hour training (18 contact hours, 2 self-study) qualifies as the prerequisite for application for the TCTSY annual facilitator certification program with the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at the Justice Resource Institute in Boston, MA.


This workshop will include:

  • In-depth discussions of complex and developmental trauma, and the impacts on the body through most up-to-date neuroscience findings.

  • Trauma in human relationships, and why relationships matter.

  • The methodology of TCTSY: explorations on the themes of choice, personal agency, interoception, shared authentic experience and noncoercion.

  • 4 TCTSY group practices led by Anna and Rachel.

  • In small practice groups, participants will have the opportunity to “try on” aspects of the TCTSY methodology

  • Yoga teachers will gain trauma-informed skills and tools to reinforce their current teaching; Treatment professionals and social workers will learn simple yoga forms and breathing exercises that they can offer to their clients.

  • Ethical marketing, professional boundaries and responsibilities
