by pervasivecore deficits in the regulation of emotion,cognition and behaviors. Traditional “talk”therapy generally ignores the sensory-motoraspects of experience and is limited in its access toimplicit, automatic or “subconscious” patterns,relying solely
on declarative memory and explicitcontent. But the body holds both subconsciousinformation as well as self-regulating resources.Participants will learn to “speak” and “read” thelanguage of the autonomic nervous system andtailor their preferred methods of interventions
tosupport autonomic regulation and coherence. This6-hour workshop is designed for mental healthprofessionals who want to develop an understandingof how cortical, subcortical andautonomic nervous system activation play a role inthe formation and maintenance
of symptoms, andskills to incorporate somatic awareness to facilitateregulation.WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES:This course will provide mental health practitioners,psychologists, and other licensed professions with theability to:

  • Learn basic principles of the neurobiology of emotional distress using Stephen Porges’ polyvagal theory and Alan Schore’s theories of attachment and brain development.
  • Recognize various autonomic nervous system phase shifts and skills to move client from one phase to the next.
  • Differentiate between working with narrative memory in talk therapy and implicit memory in somatic awareness therapy.
  • Integrate sensory-motor responses with cognitive and affective processing to reduce symptoms and increase resiliency.
  • Understand the role of interpersonal neurobiology and the use of the therapist’s nervous system to regulate high affect states in clients.
  • Practice interventions to facilitate change in the nonverbal realm.
