Dr. Stan Tatkin, author of Wired for Love and Love and War, presents PACT – a Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy. PACT, a fusion of attachment, arousal regulation, and neuroscience, is quickly gaining a reputation for effectively treating couples typically thought of as untreatable. Four 2-day sessions feature clinical video presentations, multimedia and didactic delivery, group discussion, case consultation, experiential exercises, and live case enactments. Workshops deepen knowledge of attachment, arousal regulation, neurobiological deficits, and therapeutic enactments. This workshop series is intended for licensed and pre-licensed marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists. CE credits offered.

Founded/Directed by Pat Ogden, Ph.D. The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy™ Training for the Treatment of Trauma answers the need for a psychotherapy that addresses the physiological responses driving post-traumatic symptoms such as numbing, hypervigilance, emotional overwhelm, immobilization, and impulsivity. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments. SP is a body-oriented talking therapy that draws from principles of interpersonal neurobiology and is informed by contemporary research on trauma, neuroscience, dissociation and attachment. The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute offers trainings throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia. SPI trainers teach effective, accessible somatic interventions for working with the legacy of both trauma and attachment disturbance. Visit our website for more information.
