Lisa Schwarz & Ron Schwenkler • Sunday All Day
location: SUITE 200E
Trauma work can be intimidating for therapists, especially when it triggers their own fears. This resilience-building workshop will give you tools and resources to prepare you for the inevitable challenging moments in trauma work. Through demonstrations and interactive exercises, you’ll master resourcing techniques by learning how to:
- Tune into your triggers and develop a more acute awareness of what activates your flight, fright, or freeze reflex
- Use specific eye positions to anchor into your neurophysiology the resource states when you’re at risk of being triggered
- Ground yourself and get back on track within the therapeutic session through strategies such as breathing exercises, nurturing internal parts, and somatic mindfulness
