Giving the body a voice: How EMDR, ego state therapy, somatic experiencing and indigenous healing methods can cure somatic dissociation

Description

Psychology increasingly recognizes the role of the body in healing from unresolved traumatic experience. In pursuit of an integration of mind and body medicine, current trends and practices offer a wealth of strategies to access raw traumatic material held in the body. This workshop will draw from several sources. Ego state therapy (Watkins & Watkins, 1997; Watkins & Paulsen, 2003) offers numerous strategies including a hypnoprojective technique, dissociative table (Fraser, 2003) which can be used to access bodily held material. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), (Shapiro, 2001) incorporates accessing body sensations as part of specifying a target and reprocessing traumatic material to an adaptive resolution. Somatic Experiencing (Levine, 1997) relies upon tracking body sensation for both resourcing and transforming trauma. The workshop will engage participants on both cognitive and somatic levels.
