  1. This is fantastic and I am helping people who has reached in norway from war zone some are polytical aslum and they are trumtised in sevralway . I have seen this video but I am not able to tkae course or web seminar . because of my economical issue .
    I will recomend this web site to people ( Psychologist) who are intrest for this topic . I am also psychologist .untill to 30 july 2017 in oslo.

  2. Kudos, it was a great first session. It is wonderful to hear “the latest” work from therapists with age old experience who explain protocols through learned lenses.
    Part of the EMDR protocol includes mind/ body interaction.I have found myself expanding that area with PTSD/DID px with added success. Ihave also adapted the mind/body protocols to work with horses who have been traumatized.
    Amazing that it took so long to include the body in trauma work. Thank you for this webinar!

  3. This topic is so interesting to me and I was so looking forward to see this video but was unable to get it. The video would start but then stop, and I could not get it to run again. I am sincerely dissappointed.

  4. I have used CST, Therapeutic Imagery, Mindfulness, Yoga along with Physiotherapy in my private practice for 20 years and am excited to read about “Trauma and the Body” and look forward to exploring the material.

  5. Whoops, I meant Dr. Pat Ogden.

  6. The body language of self-soothing: What an extensive topic. I wonder if Dr. Roy’s client uses her hands purposely now to locate a sense of nurturing. Or is there a new sense of one’s self by discovering one’s own resources. I keep wanting to hear about Trauma Therapy which, following release, generates new neural pathways, as NLP folks say we can *remember* the future to be what we reprogram it to be.

  7. What Pat Ogden refers to is thoroughly integrated in the psychotherapy of Al Pesso that he has created and labeled psychomotor therapy. Trauma expert Bessel Van Der Kolk is very familiar with psychomotor, and has invited Al Pesso to present at his conferences.

  8. This was one of the most interesting discoveries…Thank You…I shall pay closer attention to what I see and how and what it relates to… in fact I’m off to see something I do that I never thought anything of…I just love the hunt…

  9. That clasped hand position? It’s what very premature babies do for self-soothing. I used to volunteer as a baby-holder in a neonatal unit, and learned the variety of ways very young babies (born at, say, 26 weeks) communicate – for example, tiny arm thrust out straight like a stop sign, palm open and up when overstimulated, and how they self-soothe by finding and clasping their hands.

    I can just underscore the importance of paying attention to body language and the integration of body and mind in the work with trauma patients. I work with horses (Equine facilitated Psychotherapy and Coaching) which are extremely sensitive in picking up body language and mirroring it back to us. Some of my clients had life changing experiences in my sessions and told me that no talk therapy could have ever brought them to this extend of integration and the ability to work through their traumas.

    This is very interesting. I have discovered in my ” Biology Training” that the emotional mind responds very well to trauma treatment.
    I help many people with Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia even affected with blindness and it starts working immediatly during the consultation. I helped a lady who was able to read the prayer I had prepared for her while sitting in front of me eventhough she was blind when she entered my office.

  13. The video reminded me of the value of hand gestures in the ‘Sensation approach’ in Homeopathy, pioneered by Dr Rajan Sankaran.These gestures come from a deeper level, level 5 the vital sensation, which is beyond body-mind.His book ‘The Other Song’, goes into this at great depth.Here in this video, the client is unconscious of the hand gesture till the therapist brings her attention to it.The associated story brings a conscious connection, and healing.In Homeopathy we would take her beyond the story to discover her remedy(the other song), which will certainly complement the trauma healing at a deep level.
    I have shared this because in a earlier video on trauma healing at a somatic level(cellular memory),where the method had semblance to trituration process in homeopathy,again i thought the
    Homeopathic remedy would complement the healing work done by somatic psychotherapy.

    • Dr. Roy,
      This is so interesting because what you are talking about is exactly the kind of work I am doing with the help of horses. I am practicing Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and the horses, with their highly developed senses, pick up so much more that is going on inside of us, then we therapists do. They mirror back to me what is going on in my clients. Through the processing work after the session with the horses, the client can get a deep insight into his/her behavioral and thought patterns and create an deeper awareness which leads to integration and healing.
