Research in neuro-biology and polyvagal theory has confirmed: trauma lives in the body. As mental health service providers, we are exposed daily to the sensory and somatic experiences of our clients, as we support them throughout the healing process. Exploring the mind-body connection through dance/movement therapy and mindfulness techniques, participants will have an opportunity to examine and expand their self-knowledge, build skills in body-based rapport building, and obtain tools in nonverbal co-regulation for their work with trauma survivors.
This seminar supports participants in identifying their individual level of stress and burnout, while promoting increased: self-knowledge, self-care, and understanding of holistic practices, including mindfulness.
