About This Workshop
Mend Therapy was founded with the idea that true collaboration between touch therapists and psychotherapists offers the best hope for people affected by trauma to heal.
Research consistently points to the need for somaticly oriented tracking and intervention in the treatment and care of those affected by trauma. Join Co-Founder of Mend Therapy, Kevin McCarthy, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and Certified Advanced Rolfer as he offers his own expert insights into the somatic world of trauma.
This workshop will give you the skills to:
develop and tune your somatic tracking skills to accurately follow the physiological shifts that occur in your clients when working with trauma
work with somatic mindfulness, allowing you to engage with the body in meaningful and effective ways that help mitigate overwhelm, increase interoception and enhance you feelings of confidence and effectiveness when working with the body
This workshop will offer movement and awareness exercises all therapists can use in practice. Touch will be discussed as an intervention, but is not a required element of these methods.
