Nurturing Self-Regulation and Resilience: A Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Approach to helping Children, Adolescents and Families

Oct 9 (Sun)
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Santa Monica
Bonnie Goldstein, Ph.D., returns to InsightLA with this experiential and personal workshop for professional therapists and mental health professionals as well as parents, caregivers, and practitioners.

Nurturing Self-Regulation and Resilience will explore the effects of trauma, attachment and relationship difficulties upon the developing brain, presenting somatically-oriented techniques that can help us to move out of our heads and into the moment to moment felt sense of experience.

In the wake of the emerging appreciation that physical action is necessary to initiate new ways of perceiving reality and promote new behavior patterns, somatic interventions will be illuminated through the lens of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy in order to promote resiliency, develop resources, regulate arousal and create new competencies, in an action-oriented atmosphere of curiosity, play, and discovery.

Since a healthy sense of self is built upon a secure attachment with caregivers, this integrative presentation will include discussion and demonstration of myriad approaches to foster security by teaching practical somatic resources that can increase positive interactions between children and their caregivers,collaboratively developing a somatic sense of self.

Interventions will be illustrated through lecture, all new video case examples and brief experiential exercises.
