uniquely combines body-based healing with the power of parts therapy
To fully overcome trauma, our field’s leaders have shown us how crucial it is to directly address the traumatic impact on both the body and the mind.
But many of today’s therapy methods not only miss this important part of trauma healing – they often aggrevate trauma responses within the body, leading to feelings of dread, terror, helplessness, shame, and rage.
As a pioneer in body-based therapy, Pat Ogden has been at the forefront of developing powerful somatic interventions that work directly with the body without causing further stress and discomfort for the client.
That’s why her Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) approach is hailed by master clinicians, including Bessel van der Kolk and Janina Fisher, as an indispensable therapy to provide deep and profound healing from trauma and other disorders.

Pat Ogden, PhD, is a pioneer in somatic psychology, the creator of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy method, and founder of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute.
Dr. Ogden is a clinician, consultant, international lecturer, and the first author of two groundbreaking books in somatic psychology: Trauma and the Body: A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment (2015). Her third book, The Pocket Guide to Sensorimotor Psychotherapy in Context, advocates for an anti-racist perspective in psychotherapy practice. Her current interests include couple therapy, child and family therapy, social justice, diversity, inclusion, consciousness, and the philosophical/spiritual principles that underlie her work.
Before the Diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder was even included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), Pat Ogden recognized first-hand the way in which many of her patients were at the mercy of reliving the past, and that current treatment methods only seemed to trigger traumatic reminders.
Recognizing the link between the body and psychological issues, she began to form the foundations of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® by joining somatic therapy and psychotherapy into a comprehensive method for healing this disconnection between body and mind.
Even if you have trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, you'll see all-new clinical demonstrations that draw on the body to integrate parts, with Pat's commentary of each intervention – how she does it and why.
We’re that confident you'll find this learning experience to be all that's promised and more than you expected.
