The Body’s Role in Trauma Recovery

Techniques For Therapists

Trauma leaves a lasting impact on our bodies. Helping our clients heal from trauma can be blocked if we only address the mind and do not include the body. Nervous system regulation is crucial for working through traumatic experiences. It is also a critical component of safety and health in our relationships. Dr. Christine Baker, a somatic experiencing practitioner (SEP), will use experiential exercises to teach therapists how to regulate the nervous system to aid in recovery from trauma. She brings a Christian faith-based approach to this growing field of work. Participants will come away with an understanding of:

  • The importance of the body in trauma work
  • Practical techniques to provide a gentler approach to trauma work
  • Somatic practices that help clinicians use their most powerful tool: regulation of their own nervous system
