Childhood trauma, including abuse, foster care, relocation, witnessing domestic violence and loss, profoundly affect a child’s developing mind, brain and body. Many difficulties can ensue, including of aggression, anti-social behavior, attention and concentration problems, affect dysregulation, passivity, and relational difficulties. This workshop will review the effects of chronic trauma upon the developing brain and give an overview of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy’s use to resolve trauma-related symptoms. The presenter will teach a Sensorimotor Psychotherapy approach that promotes resiliency, develops resources, regulates arousal and creates new competencies, in an action-oriented atmosphere of curiosity, play, and discovery.
