The Body Keeps The Score: Filling the Empty Spaces of Disrupted Attachment Through Embodied Movement and Theatre

ABOUT THE TRAINING 

The organization of the emotional brain is notoriously resistant to modification by reason or understanding. However, we can change people’s internal map of predictions and expectations by introducing reparative experiences in three-dimensional space. Precision, attunement, and interaction are key. In this workshop, we will collectively observe and practice ways in which the internal map of the world can be revised by activating the imagination through interactive movement, touch, auditory, and visual input. Attendees will be expected to have done their own personal work and be prepared to actively participate in helping to create new realities for fellow workshop members. This training is limited to 40 participants.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After completing this training, attendees will be able to:
1. Describe how trauma affects the developing mind and brain.
2. Describe and analyze how traumatized people process information.
3. Discuss how adverse childhood experiences affect attachment, brain development, emotion
regulation, and cognition.
4. Differentiate between disrupted attachment and traumatic stress.
5. Describe how early attachment trauma leads to fragmentation and development of distinct
parts.
6. Demonstrate exercises that guide attention to nonverbal awareness of physical sensations,
orientation, attraction, and unconscious choices about relevance and safety.
7. Describe techniques of physical mastery, affect regulation, and memory processing.
8. Demonstrate how to integrate various body-centered approaches drawn from theater,
music, yoga, and play to build attunement and restore agency.
9. Discuss the range of adaptations to trauma early in the life cycle.
10. Discuss treatment strategy alternatives through an understanding of the research.
11. Describe how trauma, abuse, and neglect affect the therapeutic relationship.
12. Discuss the role of self-leadership in the repair of trauma and attachment.
