This workshop presents a 3-Step Model for creating effective corrective experiences for traumatized clients. These steps are Hypnosomatic Resourcing, Re-regulating Nervous System Responses to Post-traumatic Triggering, and Repairing and Rewiring through Enduring Self-integration and Secure Attachment with Self and Others for Permanent Change. We will explore how to help clients shift from more passive responses in their lives to the use of action systems. Polyvagal theory is offered as a solution to unresolved trauma effects, and participants will learn how to move into the ventral vagal system to create safety, secure attachment, and self-connection. The workshop will include experiential exercises, demonstration, and clinical consultation.
