Workshop: The Mosaic of Healing: A Portal Into Transformation – The Client, The Attuned Therapist, The Experience, and The Tool – A Course For Trauma Therapists (Boulder, CO) 8/29/20 – 8/30/20
August 29 - August 30$420
The workshop hours will be Saturday, August 29th 9-5 pm and Sunday, August 30th 9-5 pm.
This workshop is designed to educate practitioners working in the trauma spectrum on how to integrate the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) created by Dr. Stephen Porges as a preparatory or intervention tool for treating complex trauma.
We will be discussing applications of the SSP among pediatrics, couples, individuals, and family systems. The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) prepares the nervous system to respond to the ‘Essence of Safety’ while it is also being challenged to self regulate by the music.
The SSP listening sessions are supported by activities that encourage expression, embodiment, coherence, and empowerment, therefore preventing the natural defenses of dissociation and overwhelm seen in a vulnerable Nervous System. The SSP utilizes music that progressively kindles the natural biological rhythms of homeostasis and the Autonomic Nervous
System’s (ANS) capacity to recover. This model cues the brain stem into shifting towards a state of regulation.
This course will introduce you to a tracking system for optimizing the effects of the SSP. The SEGAN Model (Sensations, Emotions, Gesture in Color, Action, and Narrative) will invite form, movement, and color to the experience, as it also illustrates the triad between the Client, Experience and the Therapist.
This is a simple, yet potent model, that may be implemented in a wide variety of settings which includes therapy offices, hospitals, residential facilities, outdoors, home, and community.
By adopting this model, throughout the course of seven days, you, as the therapist, will have a profound insight into your client’s “Portal to Transformation”. Your client will receive the gift of embodiment, clarity and meaning that will continue to unfold throughout their intervention.
As a participant in this training, you will be able to construct your own “Mosaic of Healing” and experience your life story from an inspired and transformational way. You will develop personal poetry in support of your unique healing journey Both of these techniques are embedded in the
