USABP SPOTLIGHT WEBINARS INTRODUCES
"Sensory Awareness: The basis of Somatic Psychotherapy."
Presented by Judyth Weaver
Gain insights into the world of Body Psychotherapy, Somatic Psychology and the benefits of becoming more aware of yourself.
This webinar is an example of the ongoing experiences available exclusively to members. Join Here.
We are naturally born as vital, fully sensory beings.
Traumas, tensions, even some education and surely much in our contemporary lives can diminish our vitality and interrupt our senses of connection, thereby creating unrest and insecurities in our lives.
How can we, as therapists, help another connect unless we can connect with ourselves? If we do not experience our own feelings, how can we relate to the feelings of others?
Sensory Awareness is the practice of coming more aware ….. of ourselves, of how we respond to various aspects of our lives…..to the rest of the world.
This webinar will be an experiential session in which we will explore our connections and disconnections with ourselves and our surroundings.
Sensory Awareness has been basic in the development of Somatics and Body Psychotherapies and has influenced many various therapies, starting with the work of Wilhelm Reich, considered the father of body therapies. Examples of how this work has been used in therapeutic sessions will also be presented.
