So many of our earliest experiences play out in our day-to-day lives as powerful whispers of early patterns, which have become so familiar that we often repeat them unknowingly and call them fate. Working with early trauma involves learning to recognize the unconscious imprints that play out and work to consciously repattern sequences that have gone awry as a result of a variety of adversities and disruptions. These imprints are often discussed through the verbal narrative, but emphasis in this workshop will be placed on the somatic or body story that carries and drives the majority of this imprinting, given how much of it is pre-verbal, and how it can impact the nervous system, behaviour, emotional, cognitive and relational patterning.
This two-day workshop focuses mainly on working with adult clients who have experienced early developmental trauma, drawing from a variety of perspectives, including somatic, attachment and parts work approaches.
This workshop is an introduction to a complex topic, and suggestions for further training will be provided.
