This workshop is sponsored by NJPA and EUCAP. NJPA is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists. NJPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Many of the current clinical models of practice emphasize the role of present moment experience in therapeutic action.  The body contains the roots of past experience in present time.  When clinicians learn how to pay attention, they discover that the body provides a new pathway to access hard-to-reach implicit material and an opportunity for profound experiences of healing. 

In this workshop, Dr. Gladstone will give a brief introduction to somatic psychotherapy as it augments and deepens clinical practice. She will focus on techniques and demonstrate her work as a somatic psychotherapist using clinical examples.  Participants will leave with a sense of how to integrate information from the body into long-term talk therapy.

Learning objectives:

At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe the central focus of somatic psychotherapy.
  2. Articulate how the use of mindfulness serves to investigate and deepen present-moment experience.
  3. Identify 3-5 experiential interventions to utilize with clients that entail somatic experiencing techniques.
  4. Create a protocol for a somatic psychotherapy session.
