Description

Every trauma healer needs to know how to work with pain trapped within the body.

But, there are so many ways to do somatic therapy… many therapists have been confused about where to start.

That’s why we’ve put together foundational training on how to implement essential body-based techniques with trauma and somatic healing expert, Abi Blakeslee.

This accessible training will give you the skills to start using somatic techniques including Somatic Experiencing™ skills, breathing exercises, Hakomi, Polyvagal, movement-based, and more with your next client.

Take a front-row seat to learn step-by-step how to implement somatic therapy techniques with all your clients. Join Abi to get first-hand experience as you learn from real session demonstrations how to…

  • Implement 9 key strategies for nervous system regulation to use with ANY client
  • Apply new research on neurobiology immediately in therapy
  • Avoid getting caught in “talk therapy” and quickly begin trauma processing
  • Help clients disempower the pain and reactivity to explicit and implicit trauma memories

My dissertation, with a committee that included Dr. Daniel Siegel, generated original research on the role of implicit memory in Somatic Experiencing. My clinical experience is with individuals, couples, children, and families treating a broad base of issues. I draw from over a decade and a half of experience with SEI, teach throughout the country and internationally, and consult worldwide. I am currently conducting evidence-based research on SE to promote its use in trauma-informed statewide care initiatives. you can access several SE research publications I have written on my website. I reside in Bozeman, Montana (right outside of Yellowstone National Park), and currently specialize in providing SE individual and group consultations for SE students of all levels. I have faculty-level online group case consultations on Saturday of most months. You can join by going to my website www.abiblakeslee.com.
