Session Nine: Non-Verbal Treatments of Trauma and Other Modalities of Treatment (Individual, Couple, Group, Family)
Content Level: Beginning and Intermediate

Abstract: For some clients, more traditional individual talk therapies are not sufficient. Given that trauma is also experienced in the body, non-verbal therapies have been developed over the past few decades. In this session, we will explore Sensorimotor Therapy, one of the more researched “body-based” therapies for clients with complex trauma. In addition, couple and family therapies and group treatments for those with complex trauma, including the benefits and possible contraindications will be discussed. Time will be given to discuss case material as it relates to the readings.
