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.
