The past decade has witnessed a rise in therapeutic approaches that combine trauma-informed care and work with the body. These practices include Somatic Experiencing®, sensorimotor psychotherapy, movement and somatic practices, mindfulness and so much more. The awareness of our relationships, especially how we self and co-regulate is the container for healing. Research and science now also support how the earliest life development (preconception, conception, the prenatal period, birth and the first year or two of life) play a key role in our foundations for health lifelong. Therapies for working with these layers of experience are currently developing. This workshop will include information about the paradigm. Birth psychology and other fields have long held that it is a paradigm shift to include the baby’s experience. This shift has truly happened, but practices are still catching up. Come learn skills to recognize, appreciate, and integrate early life experiences. Full trainings are often over 50 days long. This workshop will outline skills, present the pathway for practitioners who work with adults with early trauma, and provide experiential learning so participants will take away tools for their professional toolkit.
