Traumatized Children: Exploring the Sensory Memory and the Behavioral Presentations of Traumatized Children

 

Sensation is the implicit content of our affect. Our affect is the explicit manifestation of our sensations. Through the body we will explore the dimensions of the self in time/space and relationship.  We will utilize the senses as a gateway into regulation, attachment and expression in the world. During practicums we will address regulation in the context of limbic resonance, intention, support and the development of a coherent narrative for promoting regulation. This workshop will present Early Childhood studies.

More

Day one provides an overview of Somatic Experiencing,a body-centered approach to treating trauma that will help participants understand the physiology of trauma and integrate concepts of containment, resourcing, orienting to safety and more. Skills such as grounding, tracking sensations, titration and more will be introduced.

Days two examine case studies and experiential exercises to help participants identify the correlation between Sensory Processing Disorder and Trauma.
