Event description
Practical workshop Illuminating working with the body, non-verbal phenomena & countertransference during the Covid-19 Pandemic

About this Event

About this event:

A practical workshop for Psychotherapists & Counsellors, Coaches, Yoga & Mental health professionals interested in deeply exploring Body Awareness and illuminating working with the body, non-verbal phenomena and countertransference during the pandemic both online and in person. Sharing the knowledge of working with the body is now even more important due to the pandemic.

Course outline:

Mind and body are fully integrated and what the therapist notices in the client’s body, or experiences in her own body, energy, tension, holding or other non-verbal phenomena is vital to bring into awareness and into the work with our clients.

Today, our work during the pandemic with both adults and children, coupled with recent neuroscience research, emphasises how trauma, anxiety and depression are held in the body and how a bodily understanding is essential for therapists, yoga and health workers during this time when working online and in person during the covid pandemic.

This workshop explore body awareness in therapy and illuminate working with non-verbal phenomena and countertransference. We will explore the process of bringing the unconscious, into conscious consideration for both therapist and client.

During the workshop we will explore:

Our Relationship with Mind and Body: Key aspects of psychoanalytic understanding

The Autonomic Nervous System & Poly Vagal Theory

Body Countertransference: As felt by contemporary psychotherapists including Susie Orbach & Nick Totton. Two Bodies in the Room. A TA Model of felt energy and understanding

Healing and Learning from Neuroscience: Focus on Trauma Sensitive Yoga and clinical examples from Lorna's work with the NHS. Establishing a sense of self and community, through yoga, meditation, theatre, music, movement, vocalization and psychodrama
