Beyond Words: Attachment, Trauma &  Implicit Communication

  Pat Ogden, Ph.D.

Emphasizing embedded relational mindfulness, this conference explores the legacy of trauma and attachment experience in determining affect regulatory capacities, procedural learning and implicit communication, and thus in large part, the quality of one's relationships with others and with oneself. Key components of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy will be illustrated using videotaped excerpts of sessions with traumatized individuals and brief experiential exercises: distinguishing interventions for trauma- vs attachment-related emotions; specific skills for embedded relational mindfulness; working with physical actions related to animal defensive subsystems and developmental movement sequences; building somatic resources; and developing a somatic sense of self.

  •   Describe the Window of Tolerance
  •   Explain relational mindfulness
  •   Describe the role of the body in psychotherapy
  •   List three specific movements to explore in therapy.
  •   Define the “somatic narrative.”

Pat Ogden, PhD, is a pioneer in somatic psychology and the founder/director of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, an internationally recognized school specializing in somatic–cognitive approaches for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder and attachment disturbances.
