The body remembers
And we must listen.



We’ll teach you important interventions to help leverage the body-mind connection to assist others in healing from trauma. We will cover foundational somatic concepts like grounding, titration, pendulation, resourcing, and dual awareness.

You will learn pragmatic tools that can help individuals who are experiencing trauma recover from a triggering episode.

You will learn what the three phases of trauma treatment are and why it is so important to work with somatic resources.
