    In today’s increasingly complex and polarized social world, many somatic psychotherapists are being called, pulled, and/or pushed into addressing issues of social justice – in our work with clients, in our relationships with colleagues, and in our own lives. For those without a background in activism or anti-oppression work, it can be challenging to know where to begin – how to recognize our privilege, unpack our own history of oppression, and find the moral courage to act in alignment with our deepest values in contentious or charged situations.

    As body psychotherapists, it’s also important to understand how the body is implicated in oppressive social dynamics, as well as how it serves as an essential resource in cultivating our capacities for resistance, resilience, and accountability. This presentation will offer somatic psychotherapists a basic introduction to some of the key ideas in social justice work, describe how these ideas map onto the body, and outline a set of steps for making small but meaningful changes toward a more just and equitable world.

    Rae Johnson, PhD, RSW, RSMT, BCC is a somatic psychotherapist/scholar/activist whose work focuses on the intersection of somatics and social justice. Rae is the author of Embodied Social Justice and offers training and consultation on embodied microaggressions, somatic resilience, body shame, and the traumatic imprint of oppression on the body.

    Rae is Chair of the Somatic Studies Specialization of the M.A./Ph.D. Depth Psychology Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She is a somatic movement therapist, educator, and researcher. She is the former Chair of the Somatic Psychology Department at the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute, former Director of the Body Psychotherapy Program in the Somatic Counseling Psychology Department at Naropa University and the founding Coordinator of Student Crisis Response Programs at the University of Toronto. Her research and clinical interests include the somatic impact of oppression, embodied critical pedagogy, and feminist somatic research methods. She teaches Dissertation Development, Introduction to Somatic Studies, and Research Methods II: Qualitative Methods.

    Healing Shame in Couples - 13 CE Credits

    • Sat, Apr 27, 2019 10:00 AM  Sun, Apr 28, 2019 5:30 PM
    • 830 Bancroft Way, Suite 102 Berkeley, CA, 94710 United States (map)

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

    Tamalpa Experience with Natan Daskal  (Bay Area Dance Week FREE Class)

    Date: April 29

    Time: 2PM-4PM

    Location: Finnish Hall, Berkeley, California

    In the Tamalpa Life/Art Process®, movement and life are intertwined. Our bodies communicate our life experiences through movement, and this movement has the potential to connect us with the creative forces within. It can also open us up to new ways of expressing what lives inside of us.

    In this Life/Art Dances workshop, we begin with a dive into the internal landscape of the sensorial body using guided somatic-based movement as a source for creative exploration and self-discovery. The dances that arise from these movements will be further explored using drawing and creative writing. This creative use of various modes of expression enlivens the conversation between body, imagination, life experiences and art making. This process creates the opportunity for you to make meaning from movement, and to uncover connections between your dances and your life experiences.

       No dance experience needed. Art supplies provided.

    Natan’s background in theater, dance, design, fine arts, and environmental studies combine with his interests in architecture, social justice, and personal transformation to come together under Tamalpa Institute’s approach to learning and living artfully. Over the years Natan has also worked as a teaching assistant to Anna Halprin in her public workshops and classes is on faculty at the Tamalpa Institute. Natan studied ballet at the Joffrey School in New York City, received his BFA in Communication Design at Parsons the New School for Design, and is a MA candidate in Education at Goddard College where he is studying the intersection of somatics, creativity, and community education.

    THE 25th IIBA International Conference

    The title of the Conference "A bioenergetic view of love, healing, connection and authenticity" highlights very relevant themes in a world which is changing too fast. People's lives are undergoing profound changes they may not understand. In many countries there are precarious economic and social conditions and the expectations for the younger generations are uncertain. People's inner landscapes have also changed, even more precocious forms of narcissism are present and pervasive, and traumatic attachments destroy the possibility of secure connections.

    All this invites us to reflect, to update our therapeutic practice in continuity with our theoretical model. Bioenergetic Analysis has much to say and to offer both from a therapeutic and from a sociological perspective.


    When: May 22 - 26, 2019
    Where: Torres Vedras (Portugal)

    NARM Practitioner Training – Phoenix, Arizona MODULE 1

    Summer 2019

    Location TBD – Phoenix, Arizona

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Training is an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice.  

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).  

    For more information: www.narmtraining.com


    Course Objectives:

    • A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).
    • How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.
    • The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.
    • Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.
    • Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psychobiological symptoms.
    • How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.
    • When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.
    • How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.
    • A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.
    • A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.

    ISP PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, MODULE 1

    Still Waters Retreat - Austin, Texas

    Integral Somatic Psychology Professional Training, Module 1: The Physiology of Emotions. One can take module one before committing to modules two and three.

    The Integral Somatic Psychology Professional Training (ISP):  Improving outcomes and shortening treatment times in all therapy modalities (including those already body-oriented) through greater embodiment of a larger range of emotions.

    What is ISP?

    Are you interested in improving outcomes and shortening treatment times in your practice?

    New evidence-based theories of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive psychology and neuroscience offer the possibility of improving outcomes and shortening treatment periods in all therapies including those that are already body-oriented such as Somatic Experiencing (SE).

    Integral Somatic Psychology (ISP), has been developed by Dr. Raja Selvam on the basis of findings in these emerging and exciting scientific paradigms, on over a hundred years of research on the physiology of emotions, on findings from multiple body psychotherapy approaches on various physiological defenses against emotions, and on principles of energy psychology.

    ISP offers therapists in all modalities a complementary approach to improve cognitive, emotional, behavioral, physical, energetic, relational, and spiritual outcomes in all therapies through fuller embodiment of a larger range of emotional experiences including the always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions that can be readily found in almost every clinical situation.

    Who can benefit from ISP?

    ISP is for experienced clinicians engaged in psychological work with individuals or groups in therapeutic practice or teaching. If you are a psychologist, psychiatrist, marriage and family therapist, social worker, professional counselor, psychiatric nurse, or art, movement and breath therapist, coach, bodyworker, energy worker, psychology trainer and educator, clergy, meditation and spiritual teacher, you will find the training valuable in your clinical practice or professional education work that involves psychological processing.

    What is covered in ISP?

    We will study the findings on how cognition, emotion, and behavior depend not only on the brain but also on the body and the environment; how cognition, emotion, and behavior are inter-related in the physiology of the brain as well as the body and its relationship to the environment; and how emotion and the body’s involvement in emotion are important for improving cognition, emotion, and behavior. We will also study the older and newer findings on the physiology of emotions in depth in relation to the physiology of self-regulation in the brain and the body. We will study about defenses against emotions in the quantum body of the individual as well as in the connections between the individual and collective psyches. We will study and practice clinical strategies that can potentially help all therapies to improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes in their work by involving the body more in the embodiment of a broader range of emotional experiences (primary, secondary, and always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions).

    Module One will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the musculature of the legs, the arms, and the head and neck areas in the body. In addition, as an optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, introductory work with two layers of the quantum level subtle body, metaphorically named ether and air, will be presented.

    Module Two will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the musculature and diaphragms in the torso as well as through the autonomic nervous system and the organs, glands, and blood vessels governed by it. The topic of inter-personal resonance, its scientific basis, how to use it, and its value in emotional embodiment as well as attachment work will be covered.  In addition, as an optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, how to work with four layers of the quantum level subtle body introduced in part one, metaphorically named ether, air, fire, and water, will be presented.

    Module Three will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the physiology of the brain, spinal cord, and the structures that surround and protect them (cerebrospinal fluid, membrane, bone, fascia, tendon, ligament, muscle. An optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, how to work with another layer of the quantum level subtle body, metaphorically named earth, will be presented. Another optional topic for the consideration of participants, how to work to connect the individual psyche to various levels of the collective psyche to further improve emotional embodiment, will also be presented.

    ISP Module 1 Objectives:

    1.    To be able to describe the ways in which cognition, emotion, and behavior have been found to be dependent not only on the brain but also on the body and the environment.

    2.    To be able to describe the ways in which cognition, behavior, and emotion have been found to be inter-related in the brain as well as the body and its relationship to the environment.

    3.    To be able to describe the importance of emotion and the body’s involvement in emotion for improved cognition, emotion, and behavior.

    4.    To be able to describe how the greater use of the body as a container for regulating emotions can improve cognition, emotion, and behavior.

    5.    To be able to describe the major findings on the physiology of emotions in the brain, the body, and the body’s relationship to the environment.

    6.    To be able to describe the different ways in which the muscular system has been found to be involved in generating as well as defending against emotions.

    7.    To be able to describe specific tools (awareness, intent, expression, movement, breath, etc.) that psychotherapists can use to expand and regulate the brain and body physiology to expand and regulate emotional experience.

    8.    To be able to describe the different types or layers of emotional experience (primary, secondary, and sensorimotor).

    9.    To be able to describe the seven basic feedback patterns in the model of regulation used in the ISP approach to facilitate blood, nervous system, and energy flows in the brain and body physiology to improve physical and emotional regulation.

    10.To be able to describe how to work with the musculature in the arms, legs, and head and neck areas to expand these areas to foster greater emotional regulation.
