NP0015 21st-Century Trauma Treatment

This blog focuses on discussion regarding the course NP0015 21st-Century Trauma Treatment: The State of the Art.
 
 

NP0015, Trauma, Session 3, Pat Ogden

 

Learn how to help trauma clients create a “somatic narrative” with Pat Ogden, the founder and director of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute in Boulder, Colorado. Discover how helping clients gain greater awareness of their bodies and creating a somatic narrative will help them work through experiences and distressing emotions that may be otherwise inaccessible to them cognitively.

After listening to the session, please share your thoughts and any questions on the Comment Board. What was most interesting or relevant to you? We encourage you to include your name and hometown with your comment, and to take a few minutes to read and response to other participants’ comments.

    Have you worked with Occupational therapists in sensory motor treatments for PTSD?

    Thank you. This has been a great reminder to me that we are dealing with human beings who are physical, psychological, spiritual and social. Integrating these and relating to people as whole is an important and necessary role of the therapist.

    This webinar was fabulous. I was so impressed by Pat's level of sophistication, clarity and humility as an educator and therapist. I also noticed many connections to my work as a creative arts therapist (specifically the trauma-informed drama therapy I practice) with regard to integration of denied aspects of self, creating stories and recreating memories in a bottom-up and top-down manner, and the notion that the client is a container of all the wisdom they need for resilience and recovery from trauma. Beautifully done - thank you, Pat!

    Excellent and refreshing approach. How embodied and aware should the therapist be of their own patterns in order to help and interact with the trauma patient. I would be hesitant to comment on body language as I would not be sure where to go with the process. I guess training would help?

      I took Pat's Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training over a 1 year period and it provided me with the foundations to apply the substance of the work she so eloquently described in this seminar.Watching and reading about does not adequately equip one for the enactment of this work. I found it needed to be embodied in me in the training to feel and present competent to use it,including my own work with a Sensorimotor therapist

    Even with my readings and observation of body work, this seminar provided a clearer sense of the therapist's intent and process in this approach, even as brief as it was. Thank you so much for the overview. It was helpful and inspiring.

    Thank you Pat for an exceptional webcast on your model.
    How does incomplete movement apply to a client who describes the urge to harm herself by digging out her eyes or ripping out her heart? She presents in extremes of 'strong, tough city girl' to 'collapse with flaccid muscles'. In collapse mode, she presents as helpless or powerless to complete movement. She has experienced some enlivening movements (hand wrestling or pushing a pillow away from her) but she drops out again by collapsing. Even this much has been helpful because she reports feeling calmer after the session. Mostly however she is in 'freeze' mode with an urge to enact her aggression back on herself. She wants to feel the force on her body. She is very skillful and well equipped with resources and methods to stabilize and soothe her body. She has learned to live with high levels of arousal. Again, how does this urge to self-harm relate to incomplete movement or your theory in general. Thank you!

    My screen froze at the point of "can you see my hands" regarding the concept of "incomplete". I tried to fast forward, or start over. Do not know if I am the only one with the difficulty. Jean

    Pat,in having people go through the series of the memory, does the client have the feeling of reliving the trauma?

    Pat,

    I really enjoyed your presentation! I have just begun to read your book and am very interested in your work. I am currently working with a client who has a long history of abuse, trauma, and addiction. Recently, she shared with me that she is drawn to situations and people that she knows are dangerous/scary for her. She even utilizes some of the mindful techniques that we have been working with to create space between her thoughts and actions. Yet, she continues to find herself drawn to abusive situations with a odd sense of excitement. I have also utilized an emWave with her and she moves into green (coherence) when we talk about abuse, violence, trauma, addictions. I am wondering what your take is on this and how you would utilize the sensory motor approach to unlock what is there for her.

    Thank you!

    REX

    Wow!! How enlightening about the body and how it holds patterns of how we have learned to be in the world. I particularly liked the arc of emotion--resolution and how that takes place. Fascinating. I am trying to acquire tools for treating trauma and very much want to pursue this. Thanks so much, Pat and Networker, for having this wonderful presentation.
