Research is increasingly showing the importance of working with the body when treating trauma. Sometimes referred to as “bottom-up techniques,” somatic (or body-based) work is often critical when helping clients recover from PTSD and other trauma or stressor-related disorders. However, many evidence-based therapies de-emphasize somatic work, focusing instead on “top-down,” or cognitive techniques. While top-down techniques can be immensely helpful, they can also be ineffective if taught too soon, before bottom-up techniques are mastered. This is because of how the brain is naturally wired, and our clients’ need to first stabilize lower brain regions (such as the amygdala), reconnecting with the body and restoring a sense of safety. When clients can connect with their own experiences, and with others, the traditional top-down approaches become more effective. This seminar helps clinicians integrate somatic, bottom-up work into trauma treatment by teaching several body-based skills that help clients better connect with the therapist, re-establish safety in their body, and regulate their nervous system!
