Registration Information

In this engaging and informative three afternoon Live Webinar training by Dr. Arielle Schwartz, you will learn a biopsychosocial model of care which takes into account objective physical and biological factors of pain and illness as well as factors that are psychological or psychogenic in origin. Within this training, you will develop an understanding of the polyvagal theory as related to trauma recovery. A biopsychosocial approach assists clients to increase their sense of control, self-efficacy, and self-regulation regarding the intensity and duration of disturbing physical symptoms. You will learn tools to address client experiences related to medical mismanagement, invasive medical procedures, or the lack of control that commonly arises with chronic pain and illness. Treating somatic disorders and illness can be challenging; especially when the etymology lies in complex, developmental trauma. Therefore, you will be guided to assess for dissociation, lack of affect tolerance, or secondary gains that may block successful resolution of traumatic events.

In the recording of this 3-day live webinar, Dr. Arielle Schwartz offers an experiential workshop on Somatic Psychology and how it interfaces with evidence based trauma treatments. When clients suppress emotions, they can present somatically. Traditional approaches to therapy attend to the cognitive and emotional aspects of clients’ lives, while the somatic experience is often left out of the room. “Talk therapy” can have limited effectiveness for clients with somatization symptoms, developmental trauma, dissociative defenses, or debilitating feelings of shame. It is therefore, important for therapists to become skilled at working with client’s nonverbal and somatic communications. Interventions to enhance embodiment in trauma treatment expand the therapeutic experience beyond where words can take a client.
