This presentation is an introduction to Somatic Psychology and how it interfaces with EMDR Therapy. Somatic Psychology studies the relationship between the body and psychological states by highlighting physiological patterns as a primary foundation of human behavior. Therapists will learn a brief history of somatic psychology and the basic principles that are the foundations of body centered therapies. You will learn about the physiology of the nervous system and how somatic interventions directly influence nervous system regulation. These advanced tools will help clients work through stuck processing by helping them build affect and sensation tolerance.
