Academy of Therapy Wisdom: The Sensory Mosaic of Healing 12/17/2021
December 17, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm MST
THE SENSORY MOSAIC OF HEALING
Trauma changes the brain. To treat it effectively, you need a mind-body neural approach to healing that creates a sense of safety in your clients, allowing them to gently process old wounds and release unhealthy patterns that have been active for years, if not a lifetime.
Meet Ana do Valle, OTR, SEP, SIPTC, a licensed and registered mental health occupational therapist with 38 years of experience in trauma and self-regulation. The SEGAN Model, Anna’s proprietary method of healing complex trauma, is a multisensory model that allows the therapist and client to track, co-create, reflect on, and develop an embodied, empowered autobiography—or new narrative of the self.
You’re invited to join us for an intimate 3-hour Touchpoints workshop to learn about the SEGAN Model and how it can help you effectively treat trauma. You will learn practical tools you can use with clients to support their awareness of felt sense-based intention and guide them into the co-creation of their own Sensory Mosaic of Healing (Healing Pathway).
By encouraging expression, embodiment, coherence, and empowerment in your clients, you can help them cultivate a deeper relationship with the present moment and awareness of the conscious mind.
This somatic “bottom-up” approach to trauma treatment creates an opportunity for subtle shifts in arousal–inviting imagination, inspiration, and intuition to strengthen your clients’ capacity to become present with themselves and those around them.
After presenting the SEGAN Model, Ana will share a case study featuring the essence of birth trauma. She will then lead you through an experiential exercise with pastels and poetry. We’ll close with time for discussion and questions.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
- The five phases of the SEGAN Model (Sensation, Emotion, Gesture in colors, Action, and Narrative)
- The 12 Human Senses to be considered when healing wounds of attachment, shock, and trauma
- The “Color Gesture” activity as a way to support the relationship with your client’s personal narrative
- The movements (Eurythmy) that support the embodiment and the Healing Algorithm of the SEGAN Model
