Clients aren’t “resistant” - they’re inadequately warmed up to change, and as clinicians, it is our job to help them lower their anxiety, stay engaged in the process, and increase their emotional, physical, and spiritual capacity. Now more than ever, we need to rely on somatically based and experiential modalities to help our clients stay grounded and resourced in the process and build connection, so they are motivated to keep coming back. In this educational and experiential presentation, we will explore a variety of tools and techniques from the disciplines of Polyvagal Theory, Somatic ExperiencingⓇ, Psychodrama, and Psychodramatic BodyworkⓇ to help clients stay better regulated so they can move forward on their healing journey.
Participants will be able to verbalize at least two aspects of Polyvagal Theory.
Participants will be able to describe at least two aspects of the Threat Response Cycle.
Participants will be able to conduct at least two activities that can help downregulate one’s nervous system.
