Pat Ogden PhD - When Words Are Not Enough: How to Engage the Body to Disrupt Entrenched Patterns - Sydney
Nov 25 - 26, 2019 | AUD $770 | Sydney, New South Wales
Pat Ogden PhD - When Words Are Not Enough: How to Engage the Body to Disrupt Entrenched Patterns is organized by Byron Clinic and will be held from Nov 25 - 26, 2019 at Wesley Conference Centre, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Training Overview: This training offers a practical approach learning about the wisdom of the body, understanding your own somatic patterns, and integrating body-oriented interventions into your clinical practice. Traumatic events and attachment failures can become the central defining experiences that form the identities, shape the relationships and largely determine the lives of many survivors. Established early on for those with complex trauma, patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting designed to navigate an unsafe, threatening world are solidified with repetitive use, and become harder and harder to modify as time goes on. Often described as “intractable,” “resistant,” “hard-to-treat,” “stuck,” and even “impossible,” these clients feel powerless, often become victims again and again, tend to blame themselves or what happened to them for their misery, and sink further into hopeless despair when therapy fails to help. These maladaptive patterns are held in place by automatic, non-conscious physical and physiological habits and working directly with the body can loosen their grip. But therapists are often concerned that their clients are too destabilized, dissociative, body phobic, low functioning, or otherwise challenged to benefit from body psychotherapy. Therapists themselves might feel ill at ease asking clients to be aware of their bodies, change their posture, or explore movement. And so-called “difficult” or “impossible” clients may and may find somatic interventions triggering, anxiety provoking, shameful, unappealing, or a waste of time. However, these clients may be exactly the ones who stand to gain the most from a somatic approach. A major advantage of a body-oriented approach, in addition to bypassing explanations and rationalizations, lies in the fact that physiological, movement and postural patterns are tangible and can be directly and objectively observed, addressed, and changed in clinical practice. In this workshop, participants will learn practical, easy to implement interventions from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy designed to catalyze change in “resistant” and otherwise “difficult” clients with chronic entrenched patterns, including those with dissociative disorders, addictions, self-harm, repeated hospitalizations, alexithymia, chronic shame, prolonged grief, feelings of self-loathing and worthlessness, and emotional stuckness. This workshop is not limited to stabilization, but includes working with traumatic memory and destructive relational patterns rooted in the adversity of the past. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy will be illustrated through video excerpts of consultation sessions and brief experiential exercises. Participants will walk away with a new perspective on how simple techniques that target the body can throw open the door to change even for the most entrenched clients. Topics: • Befriending the Body • Positive Affect, Movement and Self-touch • Stuck in a Rut: Patterned and Overwhelming Emotions • The Relational Nature of Shame • Dissociation and Body Interventions • Parts of the Self • Body-to-body Conversations: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Couples Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
