February 28 – March 4, 2018
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
A 5-day training workshop presenting the theory of Wilhelm Reich and Charles Kelley, and the basic concepts of the Radix approach: Pulsation, Segments, Armoring and Counter-pulsation, Contact, Grounding, Centering, Attachment, Boundaries and Containment.
In the early 1920’s Wilhelm Reich, along with analysts Groddeck and Ferenczi , pioneered working with the body-mind for effective therapy and personal growth outcomes. Radix, developed by Erica and Charles Kelley in the 1970’s, continued and developed this work, especially emphasizing the self regulatory nature of the life force and the significance of the eyes in human psychology. More recently, neuroscientists (van der Kolk, Schore) and developmental psychologists (Tronick, Trevarthen, Beeby) have recognized the significance of early bodily experience for later healthy holistic functioning, and in particular the non-verbal nature of this experience.
The Radix Institute is offering a five-day training workshop, open to those who work with people to promote personal growth and healing, as well as to those who wish to deepen their own personal growth through a body-centered modality. This workshop (Module 1) presents an overview of the theory, and is the basis for further modules in the training program.
CE credit for Module 1 is sponsored by Commonwealth Educational Seminars (CES). The training workshop offers 30 credits of Continuing Education to social workers, psychologists, licensed mental health counselors, licensed professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists.
Contact The Radix institute for further information.
This workshop is the first in a series of training modules. Future training modules will focus on specific content areas such as affective regulation, eye-work, and containment. The modules can be taken by themselves, or can lead to certification as a Radix Practitioner. For the Certification Program, the modular structure of the training gives flexibility as to when a trainee enters the program, begins their individual experiential work, and begins working with students or clients of their own.
