Somatic Masterclass: Working with the Body in Psychotherapy
Organisation: Brighton Therapy Partnership
Description: This Masterclass focuses on the importance and potency of working with the body. While the world is on a very long recovery from the CoVid pandemic the idea of working with the body has become bittersweet; bodies have become fragile vessels that can be invaded by invisible pathogens and we are being told to stay as far away from each other’s bodies as possible. We begin with a call to action from Nick Totton who shows how our societal tendency to be disembodied is an expected response to trauma. Building on this, Morit Heitzler explores how as therapists we can learn to become more attuned to the body of the other and to offer a deeper emotionally regulating experience. We finish the day with a presentation from Tony Buckley, again focussed on how we can work therapeutically with our clients and how the practice of Sensorimotor psychotherapy works to release those who are stuck in a traumatic experience.
