Sensation is the implicit content of our affect. Our affect is the explicit manifestation of our sensations. Through the body we will explore the dimensions of the self in time/space and relationship. We will utilize the senses as a gateway into regulation, attachment and expression in the world. During practicums we will address regulation in the context of limbic resonance, intention, support and the development of a coherent narrative for promoting regulation. This workshop will present Early Childhood studies.
Target audience: Early childhood therapists, educators, occupational therapists, couples therapists, addictions therapists, individual psychotherapists, trauma therapists
· Recognize the inter-connection between the body’s twelve senses, embodiment, empowerment, and their importance in relationships and healing trauma
· Apply the “Twelve Senses Model” in understanding and treating autonomic nervous system dysregulation and creating a coherent narrative about the “self”
