Trauma survivors often experience a profound disconnect from their bodies, and this experiential avoidance can make trauma processing, and therapy more broadly, difficult to engage in. However, reconnecting (or connecting for the first time!) with the body can feel dangerous and scary, and it is common for clients to resist practices that create “felt sense.” This seminar, which is a deep dive into Module 2, demystifies experiential avoidance and helps clinicians learn how to take a titrated approach when helping clients connect to their bodies and emotions. No previous NDIT training is required for this course, but completion of this course counts toward NDIT certification (which will be offered starting late 2024).
