Course Description: Transforming Resilience and Regulation Through Somatic Touch
This workshop is about the understanding of Developmental Trauma and the effects it has on the nervous system. We will explore ways of applying Somatic Touch through this understanding of the body and nervous system working from the idea that the client probably has little to no memory of the event but their bodies contain the memory. These early ruptures to the system directly affects a person's resilience and their ability to grow, learn, and experience relationships without stress. This approach is directed at infants, children, adolescents, as well as adults. The approach is a blend of Somatic Experiencing, Attachment Theory, Early Developmental Trauma, Polyvagal Theory, and Somatic Resilience and Regulation. Classroom will be a combination of lectures, Q&A, and experiential exercises .

Somatic Resilience and Regulation is a somatic approach to supporting recovery from developmental trauma developed by Kathy Kain and Stephen Terrell. The approach focuses on understanding the effects of trauma during early development. The process and techniques of working with both children and adults, including recognizing developmental trauma in its adult disguises. By understanding how trauma affect the developing child, we can better understand our adult clients symptoms of early trauma and be more effective in our work with them.
