HEALING THE MIND THROUGH THE BODY: INTRODUCTION TO SOMATIC EXPERIENCING


Wed, May 24, 2017
9:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Somatic Experiencing (SE), developed by Peter Levine, Ph.D., author of the best seller, Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma, is a potent psychobiological approach to resolving symptoms of trauma and chronic stress. SE offers a framework to assess where your client is "stuck" in the defensive responses of fight, flight or freeze and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states that underlie many trauma symptoms. 

A full SE training program typically takes about 3 years to complete. This workshop is meant to be an introduction to this type of therapy with the goal of creating more awareness of SE and its benefits, assisting in a clinician’s decision to pursue more training, and creating space for conversations about the development of more “bottom-up” types of trauma treatments.

2 CEUs available at the event for an additional $10.

WHY DID I JUST EAT THAT?

Date and Time:  Tuesday, June 6, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30
Cost: $20, includes healthy snack

Stressed Spelled Backwards is DESSERTS. 

The connections between those two things do not stop there. Many of us have an emotional trigger thats seems to make unhealthy food choices inevitable. But the truth is we can topple those triggers and we can cut those connections.

"Why Did I Just Eat That?" will catapult participants into healing their relationship with food. Food is the only phenomenon where the weapon you use for self-destruction becomes a tool for healing. 

Yet, you need more than information. During this workshop, we will practice what we preach -- cooking and eating healthy alternative foods -- to demonstrate how to heal and transform this relationship quickly. You will leave "Why Did I Just Eat That?" knowing exactly the next steps to take so your healing continues.
