About the Event
This two-day event will focus on the development of advanced relational somatic principles, therapeutic practices, and specific, precise skills in the journey from trauma to wellness. The learner will come to understand the relationships of the body, mind, and soul involved in different forms of trauma and discover ways to access previously repressed and unrepressed implicit memories. We will explore the relevance of these concepts, practices and skills for diverse groups of people. The event is designed for counsellors and psychotherapists at a Masters's level.
