Somatic therapy and certain neurobiological advances enable us to use EMDR with those cut off from body awareness. The neurobiology of attachment and trauma has resulted in the recent emergence of somatic interventions for treating trauma. This workshop (1) synthesizes those advances with AIP, (2) defines basic somatic interventions and (3) identifies where in the 8 steps of EMDR to use specific somatic elements while maintaining EMDR integrity. This workshop will frame Porges’ polyvagal theory, and Schore’s right hemisphere and developmental postulates, within the neural network understanding of the Adaptive Information Processing theory, that underlies EMDR.

By attending this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Describe the significance of neurobiological advances and somatic therapy.
  • Demonstrate eight elements of somatic psychotherapy, including grounding, somatic empathy, somatic resourcing, tracking, spontaneous oscillation, evoked oscillation, micro-movements, utilizing discharge, releasing impact, and boundaries.
  • Identify 4 places in the standard protocol in which somatic interventions may be appropriately utilized.

Note: substantial practicum time is included to gain familiarity with the somatic methods.
