Maybe you have heard of this term in the field and maybe you have some ideas of what it is referring to, or maybe you have no clue.
I learned how to treat trauma from a 100% cognitive standpoint. I learned about the brain and behavior. I never considered anything else that might be involved in the process of healing.
I got a job in management at a community mental health agency that was focused on treating trauma and attachment and there is where I started to hear about somatic work. This idea of including the body was foreign to me but I was intrigued and I wanted to know more.
I started my journey on understanding how trauma doesn’t just impact the brain, but it also impacts the body and I had to consider both if I really wanted to help clients fully heal.
In this week’s vlog, I share with you why you might want to consider somatic treatments for trauma and how they can help your clients reach their goals in the healing process.
