When patients can’t find words to describe their experience, we can often find clues . . .
. . . in their posture, in the ways they move, and even in the limitations to their movement.
According to Pat Ogden, PhD, when a client has a greater range of movement options – or “movement vocabulary”
– they’ll have more options for responding to life’s stresses.
And that can increase their resilience.
In the video below, Pat describes how she helped a client who had suffered years of abuse begin to expand her movement vocabulary.
Take a look – it’s about 5 minutes.
