    EVENT DESCRIPTION: A high percentage of clients in outpatient treatment and a higher percentage of inpatients report histories of neglect, trauma, and/or attachment failure. In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

    The Level I Training presents simple, body-oriented interventions for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

    EVENT LOCATION: Toronto, ON

    Finding Sanctuary in the Body
    A free guided support for body, mind and spirit 
    with Paula Josa-Jones

    A recipe for entering the body:
    Attention: because the body is precise.
    Listening: because the body is subtle.
    Kindness: because the body is tender.

    I am offering some gentle somatic support, and invite you to join me for a weekly 30-minute free movement meditation. 

    Each week I will share a simple, gentle movement experience to help settle our bodies, minds and hearts, and hold ourselves more gently in this unsettling and challenging time.

    These mindful practices can help to calm and steady us, using conscious movement and stillness, breath, self-touch, and imagery. In my experience, when we move with an improvisational spirit of exploration, we find greater expression, expansion, and resilience.

    You are welcome to join for all sessions or as many as you can.

    In this webinar, Dr. Ogden will elucidate the challenges, risks, and rewards of working somatically with dissociative clients. We will explore the theory of structural dissociation, emphasizing how the body reflects and sustains 'daily life' parts of the self as well as those stuck in 'trauma time,' and how the body can be an asset in helping these parts communicate and cooperate.

    Cost: $32 plus

    This event is co-sponsored with Commonwealth Seminars and is pending approval for 2 CEs.

    In this webinar, Dr. Ogden will elucidate the challenges, risks, and rewards of working somatically with dissociative clients. The three major influences on Sensorimotor Psychotherapy’s approach to dissociation and parts work will be discussed. Practical, easy to implement somatic interventions designed to initiate change in entrenched patterns will be shared.

    We will explore the theory of structural dissociation, emphasizing how the body reflects and sustains 'daily life' parts of the self as well as those stuck in 'trauma time,' and how the body can be an asset in helping these parts communicate and cooperate.

    Additional topics covered include:

    -risks and challenges of using body oriented interventions for dissociative clients

    -tips to introduce body psychotherapy to the naïve client

    -the importance of body-oriented psychoeducation

    -the risks and liabilities of going “too far” and not going “far enough”

    -titration strategies to work at the regulatory boundaries of the window of tolerance

    -the use of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy’s “directed mindfulness” to mitigate triggering when working with the body, capitalize on neuroplasticity, and develop new neural pathways

    -Recognizing that new actions, like new words, can be experienced as threatening or adversarial to certain parts of the self, we will look at how to prevent overriding internal parts when

    -working with posture and movement, and how to draw on the body to integrate a client’s dissociative parts.

    Mindful mapping of internal parts will be introduced along with worksheets to be used with clients that are designed to support mapping the physical tendencies of dissociative parts, encourage mindful awareness of them, and identify their resources.

    Participants will walk away with a new perspective on how simple techniques that target the body can begin to open the door to change even for the most dissociative clients.

    The Hakomi Institute, in a USABP Spotlight Series Event, present a guided embodied exploration. Taught and led by Rebecca Lincoln, LPC, Certified Hakomi Teacher 

    2 CE credits pending
    This live event is recorded for on-demand home study viewing by members and paid registrants

    Are you a therapist in a setting working with underserved populations? This webinar will offer somatic activities to enhance your work with clients.  For advanced students of Hakomi this webinar brings a fresh take on utilizing Hakomi with underserved populations.   

    Honoring the bio-psycho-social world of our clients is deeply important when applying somatic therapies.  This webinar will introduce you to Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy’s unique application of mindfulness. We will spend some time raising awareness of internalized impacts of systems of oppression.  We will consider the dynamics of safety and trust when building relationship with people who are part of underserved populations. 

    Through experiential exercises, you will explore the implementation of mindful self-study as an approach to illuminate internalized impacts of our bio-psycho-social worlds and offer clients opportunity for embodied empowerment. At the core of this presentation is a deeply held belief that it is a practitioner’s role to respect a client’s voice in how they choose to interact with systemic oppression. Hakomi’s approach to transformation bridges loving presence and mindful awareness to listen for what arises from within a person and provide attuned facilitation of healing.  

    Main Points of Workshop

    ▪ Understanding Hakomi’s unique application of mindfulness

    ▪ Identifying key underserved populations

    ▪ Considerations in building safety and trust with underserved populations

    ▪ Utilizing mindfulness to illuminate and transform the internalized impact of systemic oppression

    ▪ Empowered embodiment as transformation

    ▪ Creating context for empowered embodiment to be portable.


    Participants will be able to:

    ▪ Apply three considerations in creating safety and trust with under-served populations

    ▪ Conduct one mindful self-study strategy to access internalized impacts of system oppression

    ▪ Utilize an understanding of empowered embodiment

    ▪ Explain to their client how to integrate these tools learned in counseling session and apply them outside the session

    CEU INFORMATION: not offered

    Learn Body Up! Co-Regulation exercises. Hone your co-regulatory skills. Present cases for case consultation. Expect to connect with other practitioners in breakout rooms, doing nervous system to nervous system exercises. Body up! Co-Regulation exercises are relational, regulatory, diagnostic and therapeutic. Learn to use all four aspects.

    Case Construction: What needs to happen so that a person can show up authentically and take care of themselves in relational space? Practice case construction from a nervous system point of view.

    Co-Regulation: When and How: Gauge when to start and how to introduce the exercises. Explore deepening your connection with clients online or in-person.

    Efficient Meltdowns: The exercises offer efficient ways in and out of deep emotional experience. Having reliable ways to cut through shame and rebuild connection supports people in building trust and going to their emotional edges without getting overwhelmed or dissociative.

    Co-Regulatory Stance as Therapist: Cultivate being more intentional and transparent about power dynamics. Our clients need us to be in charge of maintaining a stable base. They also often need the experience of a co-regulatory human peer, so their nervous system can learn what is possible. Then they have a chance of building co-regulatory relationships into their lives. Oppression is always rooted in hierarchy. This work rewires our brains for healthy, embodied peer relationships.

    Build Capacity: Resistance is just the nervous system showing us what it cannot tolerate. Offer clients the experience of staying present with more intensity and complexity. It makes life and therapy go better.

    Enliven the Therapist: Modeling relationships that are good for both people has to be authentically good for the therapist. Contract for Co-Regulation: Offer clients, especially solo regulators, the option to learn co-regulation. Explicitly empower the client’s adult self. Authorize yourself and clients to initiate co-regulation exercises.

    Presenter Bio - Beth Dennison MA in MFT, SEP, LMT

    Beth brings decades of teaching, psychotherapy and study of neuroscience to designing learning experiences that rewire our brains for connection and co-regulation. She is a pioneer whose professional and personal life has positioned her to make a much needed contribution to remedy the loneliness, isolation, dysregulation and failure to cooperate that plague modern western culture. Beth’s handbook, Body Up!: Nourish Your Nervous System and Your Relationships with Body to Body Co-Regulation, is a seminal work in the fields of embodiment and applied interpersonal neurobiology. With the pandemic, she has developed some very effective ways of doing Body Up! Co-Regulation online.

    Her background and education include Somatic Experiencing, Marriage and Family Therapy, Bodywork and Peer Counseling. She completed her Somatic Experiencing Practitioner training (SEP) with Peter Levine in 2003 and assists in SE Advanced trainings.

    Beth has a lifelong history of cultivating embodiment and a high capacity for clear, organized thinking. She has applied this rare and useful combination to healing developmental trauma, finding efficient antidotes to shame, and creating effective strategies to rewire our brains for co-regulation and embodiment, in therapy and in life.

    At the Center For Body Up! Coregulation, Beth puts new information from neuroscience to the test of embodied practice. Her workshops on Polyvagal Theory and Co-Regulation teach participants how to tune in to their own nervous system and connect generously and appropriately with others. She creates safe environments for people to reveal themselves and learn to co-regulate. She maintains a private practice, teaches and supervises practitioners.

    Time > 9:00am-5:30pm

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: A high percentage of clients in outpatient treatment and a higher percentage of inpatients report histories of neglect, trauma, and/or attachment failure. In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

    The Level I Training presents simple, body-oriented interventions for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

    Shame is an extraordinary combination of a primary emotion and a state of freeze. It is an embodied belief that "something is wrong with me." Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is important that therapists work with shame somatically.

    In this workshop, you will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance. You will learn how to prevent somatic counter-transference and avoid taking on the client's physical shame patterns, explore how to keep your clients more present in the room with you, and counter over-verbalization, dissociation and freezing. You will:

    • Focus on using breathing and grounding to resource the client, becoming more aware of your own breathing and expanding it in the process.

    • Learn how you can resource yourself so that you don't fall into somatic counter-transference and take on the client's physical shame patterns.

    • Explore how to keep your clients more present in the room with you and counter over-verbalization, dissociation, and freezing.

    • Learn techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of Somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing®), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi), and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    Our relationship with our body is our first and most important relationship. Yet many people feel uncomfortable in their own skin. When we are able to live in our bodies instead of hiding from them, we are able to have relationship with ourselves and then with others. 


    This workshop focuses on aspects of body image and embodiment, including working directly with eating disorders. It will include theory and also be a process group with an experiential component. We will explore embodiment through somatic embodied processes, expressive arts and drama therapy. We will learn to help the client listen to the secret conversations inside, because those conversations have to do with perfectionism and shame. Transforming the shame under those conversations can lead to creativity, life force, and living authentically and fully.


    You will learn to help clients:

    • Move beyond the toxic shame into healthy shame that can allow healthy nourishment and pleasure.

    • Talk to the inner child at different ages.

    • Identify a kind inner coach.

    • Learn mindfulness techniques to feel into emptiness and fullness.

    • Work with the secret conversations inside.

    • Develop and/or deepen the relationship a person has with her body, which begins with kindness.

    • Learn to gently open to feeling the vital life force through embodied journal writing and movement, and through exploring the body’s story of embodiment.


    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    Using Interpersonal Skills to Heal Shame: Undoing Aloneness and Building Attachment by Matching, Joining and Activating Mirror Neurons 

    With Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon PhD, SEP

    4 Fridays: February 5, 12, 19 & 26, 10am–1:30pm PST Online via Zoom – Live and Recorded

    In many studies of the effectiveness of therapy, a strong connection between therapist and client has been noted as the clearest predictor of success. And yet our own fear and shame of doing the wrong thing can get in the way of that connection. We can be overly susceptible to messages telling us to be "neutral” and “professional.” We can find ourselves holding back our warmth, generosity, and enthusiasm.


    In this workshop, you will discover powerful tools to connect with a client quickly and deeply. We will provide demonstrations to help you decide when to hold back and when to bring yourself forward, both emotionally and physically. Because shame can produce a state of freeze, we may need to be even more active in order to counter it. You will learn ways to convey to the client “I’m right there with you”—in a dance in which you alternate between follower and leader. Being “right there” with the client is especially important in working with shame, which turns people’s gaze inward and makes them feel lacking and inferior. The workshop will examine ways to level the playing field that shame distorts—and combine the seemingly contradictory roles of caring friend and trusted expert.


    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    This event is presented by Stacey Butcher, SEP 

    In these challenging times, we are all needing extra support. The most helpful tools for me have been the resources I've learned through Somatic Experiencing and Open Floor Movement, as well as connecting with my community online. So...I decided to provide a space where we can practice together.

    In each class, we will explore different resources that will help us through these crazy times.

    Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a body-based approach that helps heal trauma in the body and restore balance to an over-stimulated nervous system. Open Floor is a healing movement meditation practice and lively dance inquiry designed to reclaim our lost embodiment. As in Somatic Experiencing, the emphasis in Open Floor is to awaken our sensate experience, emotional intelligence, and mindful awareness. These two make a beautiful combination for deep inquiry and healing.

    MORE INFO

    Join us as we practice essential resources that can be used at home.

    ~ Deepen our sensate awareness of the body
    ~ Encourage the body to move from fixed to fluid
    ~ "Move and Include" all that is arising on all levels
    ~ physical, emotional, mental & spiritual
    ~ Develop a greater sense of calm and hope
    ~ Increase capacity to handle these stressful times

    This is an experiential movement class, not a lecture, so come ready to move.

    All levels of experience welcome (ages 18 and up). The class will take place on Zoom.

    "I love dancing with Stacey and always look forward to her classes. Her gentle guidance brings me into the present moment with loving awareness of my body in space. She is a master at reading the room and knowing when to press on and when to retreat. She lights up when she is teaching and I always feel connected, even when dancing remotely in my living room or across the miles." ~ Marya Mayer

    "Stacey’s Body As Resource online dance classes have been such a gift! I truly need these classes to make it through this time in the world where I’m feeling more charged and activated because they loosen up my body, create more spaciousness, and shift my perspective. Stacey is so skilled at holding space and encouraging me to drop in, release and settle my entire being. Her classes allow me to breathe again when I may not even realize I’ve been holding my breath." ~ Kelsay Myers

    Cost:
    I'm asking for a $15-40+ contribution per class. Pay what you can. Regular price is $20 per class, but I realize the current crisis affects everyone differently, so pay what you can. Anything you give above $20 will help pay for someone else who can't afford it.

    Pre-registration required (no payment needed to register). Please register before the class begins so you can arrive early to be with us when class starts.

    Healing Shame in Couples: Undoing the Fear/Shame Bind, the Main Barrier to Love, Attachment and Connection

    A Workshop for Therapists and other Helping Professionals with Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon PhD, SEP

    Online using Zoom – Live and Recorded

    2 Saturdays: March 6, 10am–6pm and March 13, 10am–5:45pm Pacific Time

    The more we care about each other, the more vulnerable we are to shame. Intentionally or unintentionally, we poke each other in the tender spots. Couples can shame each other multiple times a day, often without realizing what is happening. This can become a highly reactive cycle, preventing both people from getting their basic safety and attachment needs met. The more we become afraid of losing connection or not getting our needs met, the more likely this becomes. And shame can distort how we hear each other; the received message may have little to do with the message the partner is attempting to send.

    In this workshop we will explore the blame/shame game couples can fall into and learn how to help them stop shaming each other and to work together to create a secure base and heal the wounds of the past.

    We will:

    • Look at some of the many subtle ways shame can be triggered.

    • Explore shaming moments with great care so we can teach our clients how to avoid shame-based reactivity.

    • Learn the gentle art of counter-shaming and how to avoid triggering feelings of inadequacy in yourself or in another person.

    • Talk about, have compassion for and heal past shaming incidents within the relationship.

    • Help each person to understand, have compassion, and be there for each other—to learn to face the shame dragon together, to avoid shaming in the present and heal shame from the past. There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    The Shame in Trauma and the Trauma in Shame: Understanding and Utilizing the Similarities and Differences Between the Two Freeze States

    A Healing Shame Advanced Workshop with Bret Lyon PhD, SEP & Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT

    Shame and trauma are both states of freeze. Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Shame almost always accompanies trauma—and being shamed can have a traumatic effect. In this advanced workshop, we will explore the connection between shame and trauma and look at ways to unlock somatic and imaginal resources to work with both effectively.

    Online via Zoom – Live and Recorded 4 Fridays: March 19, 26, April 2 & 9 10am–1:30pm Pacific Time

    Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Shame almost always accompanies trauma—and being shamed can have a traumatic effect. In working with trauma, there is a tendency to miss the shame component that is often hiding in plain sight. And shame can be worked with most successfully as a form of trauma, utilizing many somatic techniques. Shame is also a primary emotion. And it has a strong cognitive component—the belief that “something is wrong with me”—that needs to be addressed.

    Being able to understand and have compassion for the parts of the person that are still frozen in shame and trauma helps us be able to sit with a client without having our own shame triggered.

    In this workshop, we will explore the connection between shame and trauma and look at ways to unlock somatic and imaginal resources to work with both effectively.

    PREREQUISITE: This workshop is only open to advanced students who have either taken at least two workshops with us or who have taken one workshop with us and have trained in working with trauma. TO

    Shame and Aging – Healing the Shame of Aging in a Society that Worships Youth

    A Workshop for Therapists and Helping Professionals with Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP

    We all go through it. No one is immune. And nothing produces more universal shame in our society than aging. Whereas many societies have deep respect for people as they age and see a vital role for elders, our society still worships youth. In this workshop, we will explore and learn to be more comfortable with our own aging process. And we will explore ways to help clients talk about, explore and heal their own shame around aging.

    We all go through it. No one is immune. And nothing produces more universal shame in our society than aging. Whereas many societies have deep respect for people as they age and see a vital role for elders, our society still worships youth.

    In this workshop, we will explore and learn to be more comfortable with our own aging process. And we will explore ways to help clients talk about, explore and heal their own shame around aging.

    We will:

    • Discover ways to help clients become aware of the many messages they received and continue to receive about aging and body image from family and society.

    • Learn ways to help clients cope with the shame of not being able to do all that they once did. • Understand counter-shaming techniques to help ourselves and our clients find pride and joy in the new reality—seeing that there are real gains as well as losses in this new stage of life.

    • Work with the shame that can cause and result from sicknesses and injuries. • Identify challenges in being looked at as unimportant and “not up to par” by a youth-oriented society and the layers of shame that can occur.

    • Discover how to make the necessary adjustments so we can regain access to the life force and creativity that we still have in a grounded and embodied way.

    • Begin to shift and transform cultural stereotypes about aging by finding a reservoir of vitality, inner vision and clear action for the next phase of life, that may be hidden under shame!

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    Healing Shame in Men – A Guide for Therapists and Helping Professionals

    Taught by Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP and Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT

    While no one has an easy time with shame, and many societies don’t really want to acknowledge it, for many men it can be especially hard. Men often don't even realize that they feel shame. This workshop will help you discover and address the invisible shame in many men. You will learn how to countershame them and invite them to join you rather than fight you when shame is activated in the session.

    When and Where
    4 Fridays: May 14, 21, 28 and June 4 10am–1:30pm Pacific Time Online via Zoom – Live and Recorded

    Cost and CEUs
    $395 full price / $375 with full payment by April 9, 2021 / Special price for interns 13 CE credits available – $40 fee (See website for details) CAMFT CE provider #134393

    While no one has an easy time with shame, for many men it can be especially hard. Men often don't even realize that they feel shame. They may suddenly find themselves shouting or blaming someone else, or pulling away and stonewalling. They may find themselves depressed and isolated, without really knowing why. In this workshop we explore the invisible shame in many men. You will learn how to countershame them and invite them to join you rather than fight you when shame is activated in the session. We offer tools and languaging that will move men into curiosity about the shame underlying thoughts and behaviors. When we get them onboard with recognizing and accepting that they have shame, as everyone does, we can help them take steps to explore and heal. There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    Time > 9:00am-5:30pm

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: A high percentage of clients in outpatient treatment and a higher percentage of inpatients report histories of neglect, trauma, and/or attachment failure. In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

    The Level I Training presents simple, body-oriented interventions for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

    EVENT LOCATION: Sydney, AU
