Attendee 1 Information
When trauma occurs, its impact can be felt physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. While traditional cognitive counselling approaches may not always be helpful in decreasing reactivity or increasing feelings of vitality, research shows that a body-based counselling approach can positively transform the impact of traumatic memories. This highly experiential workshop explores holistic body-based approaches to working with clients that focus on building resources and increasing tolerance of body sensations and related emotions. Participants will learn and practice strategies to help clients monitor and reduce traumatic arousal and move toward approaching life and relationships with hope and choice. Please note: Those attending this workshop should have previous training in the area of trauma recovery. If you don’t have existing training or experience, please attend our Trauma – Counselling Strategies for Healing and Resilience Workshop.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Identify key principles of body-based counselling approaches including awareness of present experience, resourcing, and self-regulation interventions
  • Apply tools to help resource clients and prepare them for trauma processing
  • Practice skills to help clients build affect and sensation tolerance in preparation for trauma processing
  • Describe the theory behind processing and transforming trauma within a body-based framework
  • Deepen your existing approach to working with trauma by incorporating body-based techniques

*Please allow only the registered individual(s) to view webinar materials
