This workshop will provide participants with an integrated theoretical framework, e.g., sociological, systemic, somatic, and psychodynamic, to the assessment, formulation, and treatment of trauma within relational therapy. This presentation will focus on the everyday use of witnessing, movement, and art to engage self-soothing, connection, and the re-engagement of voice, touch, and healing in relational therapy.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Assess forms of trauma that are often un-recognized in the treatment of relational systems.
  2. Identify how trauma (re)organizes the relational world and embeds in the body at the expense of voice.
  3. Utilize an integrated play-based process involving witnessing, movement, and art to identifying, address, and begin healing trauma through relational and multi-systemic therapy.
