SR-AHEC Training: Somatic Therapy
November 01, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This online workshop discusses the impact of stress and trauma on the body and how a somatic approach to treatment can facilitate the healing process. Somatic therapies are considered “bottom up” approaches to treating trauma as opposed to “top-down” approaches like CPT. Participants will be provided a general overview of somatic practices and techniques to integrate into therapy sessions. Participants will learn how somatic approaches can facilitate the mind-body connection, regulate the nervous system, and help patients work towards increasing their window of tolerance. Participants will learn how to use breathing techniques, mindfulness and meditative practices, somatic experiencing, and gentle movement as tools for managing symptoms.
CEUs and credit hours are offered for NASW-NC, NBCC, NC Psychologists Category A, and NCSSAPB.
