USABP On The Move 

Somatic movement and mindful body-awareness programs

The root of e-motion is “to move.” The same regions of the brain responsible for movement also carry out our cognitive processes. Our brain evolved from movement and still depends on it day to day. Join us to discover how conscious movement can bring nourishing restoration, playful community connection, and the understanding of how moving helps our thoughts, words, and actions.

Somatic tools may include, among others, breath, movement, self-directed touch, sound vibration, and conscious dialogue.

Cost: Donation. We request that attendees make a donation in support of our programs. USABP is member supported and a contribution based on your resources would be greatly appreciated.

    Trauma, Shame, and the Nervous System - Online Workshop - 13 CE Credits

    Friday, April 5, 12, 19, 26, 2024

    10:00 AM - 6:00 PM PT

    Register

    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 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 intermediate 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.

    Taught by Bret Lyon and Sheila Rubin

    Course Description

    This class focuses on the intersection of polyvagal theory and yoga to help your body and mind cope with the demands of stress and recover from trauma. You can compassionately support your growth by enhancing the health of the autonomic nervous system. Therapeutic yoga allows you to attend to the interrelationships between mind, emotions, physiology, and behavior while inviting you recognize the inherent wholeness that resides within your spirit.

    Applied polyvagal theory in yoga provides conscious breathing, vagal toning, mindful movement, and meditation practices that help rewire the nervous system. We help clients, students, and ourselves cultivate a felt sense of ease during times of safety, enhance our capacity to handle challenges with equanimity, and reclaim our ability to recover from stress swiftly and efficiently.

    Takeaway + Special Discount

    Through the lens of polyvagal theory, you will learn how the vagus nerve is a bi-directional information highway between mind and body—more importantly, we will experientially practice together yogic breath, movement, and awareness practices that can easily be integrated within psychotherapy.

    About the speaker's new book:

    “This well-researched book not only cites the most current applicable studies related to brain science and yoga as they impact mental health, but also provides a steady and thorough summary of yoga’s ancient wisdom as it applies to Polyvagal Theory and psychotherapy…Applied Polyvagal Theory in Yoga has become a valued and validating reference as I offer LifeForce Yoga practices to the yoga and mental health professionals I serve. No matter the healing modality in which you work, I fully endorse the many gifts this book has to offer you and your clients.”— Amy Weintraub, founder of LifeForce Yoga, and author of Yoga Skills for Therapists, Yoga for Depression, and the Yoga for Your Mood Deck (from Amy’s foreword to the book)

    “In this beautifully articulated book, Arielle Schwartz leads the way into a deep and wide exploration of body wisdom. Her brilliance lies in her capacity to curate a path of consilience across three major disciplines: science, soma, and soul. Each chapter offers polyvagal-informed yoga practices that enable readers to bring her model to life.”
    -Jan Winhall, Polyvagal Institute, author of Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model

      This Spotlight Series Event is brought to you in partnership with The Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy - an official member of the USABP Educator Alliance.


      Presented by Aylee Welch, 
      LICSW 
      Director, Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy.



      This event will be recorded and available for members and non-members who register for this event. This course will not include CEs. 

      Description:

      This is not a top-down lecture; it is an invitation to come together and gently unpack and explore ingrained perspectives that cause harm, others, and leave many behind; that thrive on exploitation and that forces specific ways of being while denying the deeper truths of ourselves.


      Topics to consider in advance of the event and for attendee discussion: 

      A conversation cannot be predicted. Attendees are invited to come having reflected on the following prompts and with a willingness to share:

      • What is your cultural heritage, to what degree do you identify with it, and what conflicts do you carry around it?

      • What role did people of your heritage play in imperialism, colonization, domination or oppression?

      • What role did/does the government of the country in which you live play in imperialism? Colonization?

      • What was happening in the world (not just your surroundings) from your prenatal time through age 6? How did these events affect your country, state, neighborhood, community, family/ parents?

      • How does this contribute to your perspective of and interaction with social (political) hierarchies?

      Learning Objectives:

      To stimulate curiosity and care while moving towards:

      • getting to know ourselves better in the context of unpacking whiteness, how and where it shows up, and it’s impact.

      • Inviting steps towards equity, inclusivity, and diversity which expands beyond man-made systems and into consideration of all of creation.

      General Agenda
      • Welcome
      • USABP Announcements
      • Facilitated exploration together
      • Q & A
      • Overtime discussion (after the event formally concludes)

      About our presenter Aylee Welch, LICSW:

      Aylee Welch is a master therapist and founder & director of Seattle School Of Body-Psychotherapy. Her teaching and supervision emphasize Core Energetics and also incorporates contemporary neurobiology and trauma theory. She feels, most recently, called to examine, learn about and breakdown systemic conditioning and pursue the need to de-center our human-ness. The invitation facilitates the possibility to develop intimate relationship with the greater Living Breathing World in which we and all beings co-exist and create together.

      She started working with people 40 years ago and as a therapist and educator has worked in many settings and with a wide variety of populations. She has been committed to social work and worked with DV organizations, as a crisis responder for the Red Cross and in other organizations, and co- founded and ran a non-profit for survivors of childhood sexual abuse in 1989 for 10 years. Her private practice has a focus on combining group and individual work. In 2014 she founded Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy, a Core Energetics training program. Her unconventional life path and her experience as a community herbalist & Ceremonialist inform and enhance her work and inspires and shapes the evolution of it.

      About the Spotlight Organization

      Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy offers a three-year training program which can be taken for both personal transformation and professional development. The program at SSBP incorporates the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and Earth-based practices. With the understanding that pure life force emanates from the Core of every being and always remains intact, we study how to track the blocks that obscure it over time and through the life cycle. We learn techniques to free the expansive life energy in order to use it on behalf of our deeper life path and to reconnect with our joy. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening our perception and that of those with whom we work, to the greater world around us as well as to our own unique offering. Read more

      Hakomi Comprehensive Training Level 1 and 2

      In this training, students learn to develop an exquisite sensitivity and attunement to others, and to convey this understanding. This empathy and responsiveness helps to create a deep sense of safety and connection, and facilitates the effectiveness of the therapy. The self-development of the therapist coupled with Hakomi’s highly innovative techniques, form the core of the training.

      Using non-dualistic principles of mindfulness and gentle, open curiosity, the Hakomi therapist creates an atmosphere of safety for deep and sophisticated processing. This helps the client yield their defences safely and willingly to be examined, re-evaluated and transformed into more functional choices and behaviors.

      The relief, increased self-awareness and freedom provides the client with a sense of personal empowerment, choice, and a richer appreciation for life.

          Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy: An Experiential Introduction

          Dates: May 17th and 18th, 2024 Online

          Friday: 9:30am-12:45pm, & 1:45-5:15pm (EDT)
          Saturday: 9:30am-12:45pm &1:45-5:15pm (EDT)

          Registration

          Cost:$295 by April 17th, 2024, $335 thereafter.

          Faculty: Julia Corley, MA, LCHMCA, SEP, Certified Hakomi Trainer

          Hakomi is a body-centered (somatic) approach. The body is viewed as a “map of the psyche” - a door that can be opened to reveal the entire unconscious belief system of the individual. The body’s habitual patterns can become a powerful access route to deeply held core material.

          Current neuroscience research has confirmed the basis for many foundational aspects of the Hakomi Method, including the effectiveness of mindfulness, loving presence, empathic attunement, limbic resonance, and memory reconsolidation.

          We develop exquisite sensitivity and attunement, using empathic skills to read and contact subtle, unconscious cues. When integrated into the session with unique Hakomi techniques, it creates a rapid, experiential access route to unconscious core beliefs and implicit memories that invisibly shape our lives and behavior. Once conscious and directly experienced, these are available for memory re- consolidation and transformation, including the healing of attachment issues. This experiential process evokes a powerful “felt sense” for the client, allowing them to take ownership of core patterns as they emerge, and to integrate new options.

          This workshop provides an immersive introduction to the Method, this includes lectures from thefaculty, experiential exercises, demonstrations, discussion, group process sessions, and supervision.

          Target Audience:

          This workshop is designed to provide experiential learning in the Hakomi Method and is also a prerequisite to the Hakomi Comprehensive Training.

          Objectives:

          Introduce the unique application of mindfulness that supports access in therapeutic settings

          Practice skills to enhance the therapist's self-regulation & embodiment & the therapeutic relationship

          Utilize Hakomi principles, e.g. nonviolence in therapy, to create safety for the client

          Discover the importance of the exploratory (experimental) attitude as a key component of the Hakomi Method

          Recognize the power of noticing the subtle somatic cues of the body & using this as the basis to build on the therapeutic relationship

          Observe the application of Hakomi skills & principles in the experiential process as a way to access unconscious core material

          Pulsation, Grounding and Presence

          Learn Somatic Theory and Technique for "Being in the World

          May 18,19, & 20

          9:00am - 4:30pm

          For questions or to register email information@radix.org.


          Our pulsation, our flow of energy ~ emotions, spontaneous behavior, clear thinking ~ can all be disrupted by the events or circumstances in our lives, resulting in patterns of contracting our bodies that prevent us from connecting with others, from being realistic, and from achieving what we would like to in the world. Our goal is embodiment.

          We will explore pulsation both in terms of our breath in-stroke and out-stroke, and in our ability to be fully embodied, in contact with and accepting of our internal experience (in-stroke) a well as well-oriented in reality, able to move out into the world, connect well with people, achieve our goals and carry our dreams to fruition (out-stroke).

          This workshop is for people who work in a helping capacity with others to learn basic techniques to facilitate grounding and presence, and restore our energetic flow.

          Learning objectives:

          • Understand Contact and 'Contactlessness' both interpersonally and within the self

          • Experience various aspects of grounding from a developmental perspective

          • Promote grounding in the body to facilitate awareness and effectiveness

          • Learn how to reduce anxiety with grounding techniques

          • Describe how particular patterns of breathing, muscle tension and movement can influence a client's mood, emotional experience, expression and energetic regulation.

          • Learn to use touch and movement to change established patterns of inhibiting one's experience

          Who can benefit?

          - Mental health practitioners interested in developing or refining a body-centered approach to their practice

          - Body-workers wanting to explore the energetics of emotional health

          - Anyone who wishes to deepen their own personal development through a body-centered modality.

          In this course students are introduced to a language of human life that includes growth, aging and dying as we do a somatically-oriented overview of human development. Students learn to see spiritual, energetic and physical experience as deeply connected through the human life span and beyond. On its own, this course helps people reorient their ideas of life and death and know themselves as part of nature, not opposed to it. This radically reduces existential anxiety.

          The Nature of Being Human is taught in small classes and, like all SoULL material, is didactic, interactive and highly experiential. This material is powerful and completely accessible for people who are not therapists. Do not think that this course is only for professionals. Never fear. It is for any curious, open-minded adult.

          This in-person session takes place at the DeKoven Center in Racine, WI.

We’ve trained over 750 students in our Comprehensive Trainings, and close to 2000 people in Intro Workshops. We aim to continuously develop and refine our training approach, in collaboration with our Hakomi colleagues around the world.

          Our team currently offers an innovative Hybrid structure that meets two Fridays a month live-online, with four in person immersions over Levels 1 & 2. One third of our live class hours are in person. The online cohorts include students and teaching assistants from 13 states, while in person modules meet in smaller groups regionally.

We continue to update our curriculum and practices to increase accessibility and inclusion for people in marginalized communities.

          Bioenergetic Therapy and Polyvagal Theory: Expanding Human Connectivity Conference sponsored by the Massachusetts Society for Bioenergetic Analysis.

          The conference addresses the connection between polyvagal theory and bioenergetic therapy. This theme provides opportunities to learn more about how to regulate your nervous system and how to manage trauma and times of stress. Much of the new scientific research about polyvagal theory supports what bioenergetic therapy has been teaching for nearly 100 years.

          Bioenergetic analysis focuses on the notion that while we are born with a tremendous amount of vitality and energy, early life experiences cause chronic bodily tension which can lead to a decrease in breathing, energy, joy, and connection to oneself and others. In this state of chronic tension and constriction, symptoms of anxiety and depression can flourish and inhibit our vitality. Bioenergetic therapy provides tools to work with the body in a profoundly freeing way. By reducing physical and emotional blocks with breathing, grounding, and emotional expressive exercises we begin to experience an increased sense of vitality, growing ease, a greater sense of well-being, and an increased ability to sustain and enjoy relationships and connections with others. Attendees at this conference will have the opportunity to attend keynote talks, experiential workshops, and participate in small process groups, which will provide opportunities to explore these themes in a safe space, all while enjoying nourishing food, community, fun evening activities, and indoor/outdoor amenities at the beautiful Essex Woods Meeting and Retreat Center.

          Unlocking Shame Binds: Unbinding Shame from Trauma, Grief, Anger, Fear, Joy, Pleasure - Online Workshop - 13 CE Credits

          EMOTIONS ARE DESIGNED TO RUN THROUGH OUR BODIES AND COMPLETE IN AN ACTION.

          Every emotion has an action tendency. The action tendency of shame is to hide, vanish, disappear. Shame is designed to keep us safe by binding with the other primary emotions, lower their intensity, and keep them from completing in an action, such as grieving, reaching out, or setting a boundary. When shame binds with anger, fear, joy, curiosity, or grief, those emotions cannot finish. We get caught in a maze of feelings, with no end. When someone simply can’t get angry, or can’t finish grieving a loss, or can’t feel joyful, or can’t move forward in life, we know that shame is involved, binding with the other primary emotions in a toxic, endless stew of feelings.

          In this workshop, we will learn how to help clients untangle shame from the other primary emotions so that they can complete. A client can mourn a loss and move on, or express anger in an appropriate way, study for an exam, complete a project, or simply enjoy life. We will learn to explain the shame-fear bind, the shame-grief bind, the shame-anger bind, the shame-joy bind, and the way shame binds with curiosity to keep us stuck. And we will learn techniques to untangle the binds so the client can live their life in a fuller, more productive, and more joyful way.

            Description

            This presentation highlights the results from a five-year NIH-funded randomized controlled trial of Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT) as an adjunct to medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD). MABT is designed to sequentially teach interoceptive awareness skills to promote self-awareness, care and regulation; this mind-body program involves psycho-education, touch, and mindfulness. The quantitative results showed significant increases in interoceptive awareness, and significant reductions in post-traumatic stress symptom reductions and pain severity for those that received MABT vs. Control pre-post intervention. Qualitative results highlight improved emotional awareness, emotion regulation and self-agency. Join us in hearing more about this project and the experiences of people who received this approach as part of their treatment.

Cynthia studies a mind-body therapy she developed called Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT). The MABT approach includes psychoeducation, mindfulness and touch to teach interoceptive awareness skills for self-care and emotion regulation. Her clinical and research expertise is primarily focused on community-based research to improve health and well-being among people who are typically disconnected from their bodies due to trauma, chemical dependency, chronic pain, or other life stressors. She trains clinicians in MABT through the Center for Mindful Body Awareness.



            The Center for Mindful Body Awareness is a non-profit aimed at providing professional trainings in Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT), an evidence-based approach to teach body/interoceptive awareness skills for client self-care and emotion regulation. Interoception is the ability to access, attend and process inner body sensory experiences. MABT strategies are particularly helpful for clients with high experiential avoidance. Professional trainings for clinicians are designed as small classes to provide a supportive and individualized learning environment. The Center also works with organizations to train staff, develop programs, and evaluate MABT services READ MORE

            Through the Looking Glass: Using Imaginal Resources to Heal Shame - Online Workshop - 13 CE Credits

            Sat July 13, 20 2024 10:00 AM - 6:00PM PST

            Taught by Bret Lyon and Shelia Rubin

            WE ARE ALL BORN WITH POWERFUL, IMAGINAL RESOURCES. WE CAN EASILY IMAGINE PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS THAT HAVE NEVER EXISTED IN OUR EVERYDAY REALITY. CHILDREN LEARN TO COPE WITH LIFE LARGELY THROUGH PLAY AND FANTASY. AS WE GET OLDER, WE MAY USE THIS ABILITY LESS AND LESS, BUT IT STILL STAYS WITH US. OUR IMAGINATION NOT ONLY MAKES LIFE MORE INTERESTING, IT HELPS US SURVIVE.

            When clients get stuck in shame, the most powerful way to help them get unstuck may be to activate their imagination. In the Imaginal Realm, logic and time are fluid and flexible. What actually happened can be explored and changed. What was stuck in the cognitive realm can be reexamined and shifted. Shaming situations from the past can be revisited and resolved.

            In this workshop, we will utilize techniques from Drama Therapy, Focusing, Expressive Arts Therapy, Jungian active imagination processing and Hakomi. We will explore the critical voices and/or the childhood scenes that are still driving the internal shame dynamic in the client. And we will also cover how to use puppets and objects for tele-health appointments.

            You will learn to help clients:

            Externalize shame so that it can be worked with directly.

            Work with roles, parts and shame-based introjects.

            Access strength, resilience, inner resources and role repertoire.

            Find a deeper understanding by working with objects you already have in your office.

            Utilize imaginal techniques to give the shame back, so that it stays in the Imaginal Realm.

            Once the shame is worked through in the Imaginal Realm, the client can interact with the world differently.
