2022: Somatic Psychology and EMDR Therapy: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment in Trauma Treatment

  • At this 3-day workshop, Dr Arielle Schwartz teaches Somatic Psychology and how it interfaces with EMDR Therapy. When clients suppress emotions, they can present somatically. Traditional approaches to therapy attend to the cognitive and emotional aspects of clients’ lives, while the somatic experience is often left out of the room. “Talk therapy” can have limited effectiveness for clients with somatization symptoms, developmental trauma, dissociative defenses, or debilitating feelings of shame. It is therefore, important for therapists to become skilled at working with client’s nonverbal and somatic communications. Interventions to enhance embodiment in trauma treatment expand the therapeutic experience beyond where words can take a client.
  • Somatic Psychology brings the body into therapy by highlighting physiological patterns and their influence on human behavior. In this workshop, you will learn the history of somatic psychology and foundational principles that underlie this work. Interventions are drawn from a wide range of somatic psychotherapy modalities including Integrative Body PsychotherapyThe Hakomi MethodBody-Mind PsychotherapyAuthentic MovementFormative PsychologyFocusing,The Moving CycleSomatic Experiencing, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. Most importantly, you will be introduced to the underlying principles that comprise a unified approach to somatic psychology as a trauma treatment.

    In this engaging and informative training, you will learn the science of embodiment and why somatic psychology is essential for helping clients work with dysregulated affect and arousal states that accompany PTSD. We will explore how to integrate body centered interventions into EMDR therapy. Throughout the 3-days, Dr Schwartz will discuss specialized treatment considerations that allow clinicians to address preverbal trauma memories, attachment trauma, and somatization symptoms. We conclude with a focus on somatic approaches to self-care for therapists to address vicarious traumatization and burnout.

    At this engaging and interactive webinar, “Women, Embodiment, and Trauma Recovery: Befriending the Body,” Dr Arielle Schwartz explains how, as therapists, we can help our clients identify healthcare goals and work through barriers that might interfere with their ongoing health and wellbeing.
