Experiencing trauma can cause us to respond by entering into a state of survival. Even after the traumatic event or events have ended, we may find that the actions of truncated survival become integrated into the nervous system and can lead to long-term side effects on the body. Eventually, the strategies that kept us alive can keep us from fully living.
In this three part, 12-session certification course, you will learn to recognize and safely resource the tension patterns of these survival responses. This course provides strategies for managing the nervous system that can help us deal with anxiety, overthinking, emotional flooding, and being overwhelmed.
As we develop an understanding of how to regulate the nervous system through various strategies, new choices become available for the neuro-muscular system, which can allow us to cultivate self-awareness around past behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. This gives us the opportunity to bring the nervous system's functionality back online so we can fully embrace life.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
This program will focus on how the cascade of activation and immobilization, which is designed to help us survive overwhelming experiences, can be addressed to facilitate enhanced quality of life. Strategies will emphasize bottom-up self-regulation, co-regulation, expanded window of tolerance, and interoceptive awareness. Resourcing techniques will be practiced to facilitate bridging the gap between external safety and internal safeness.
In order to survive, many of us needed to be silent. Trauma recovery involves reconnecting to our capacity for vocalization in an embodied way. This class will explore:
In order to maintain a connection with the caregivers in our early lives, many of us had to learn to inhibit or have fearful relationships to certain developmental actions of attachment - reaching, grasping, pulling and having.
These actions of attachment form the basis for embodied asking, receiving, giving and letting go that underscore our relationships
In order to not let in unpleasant experiences and/or survive toxic environments, many of us needed to create a “nourishment barrier”. This nourishment barrier can also prevent us from letting in the good stuff: acknowledgement from others, kindness, safeness, opportunities for engagement and reciprocity.
