Our sense of identity is established by the quality of interactions we have with the people in our environment and the way they mirror back to us the type of world in which we live. Through the developmental process we cultivate a more abstract concept of our self, but the original sensorimotor experiences that shaped our identity form a strong template that continues to inform and shape our perceptions and experiences throughout our lives. Somatic psychology is the study of how these patterns of physical and psychological experience inform and interact with one another through complex and interconnected intrapsychic and interpersonal dynamics that we are only beginning to understand through channels of inquiry such as contemporary neuroscience, attachment theory, and intersubjective psychology. Participants in this training will learn basic elements of how the body communicates with the self and the environment by exploring some of the fundamental principles of somatic psychology, including the fascinating relationship between sensation on the bodily level and movement expression in the world. Day One focuses on awareness/sensation vis-à-vis the body-based lineage within the somatic psychology field. There are a wide variety of approaches, techniques, and theories within this lineage (which can be very confusing) and participants spend the morning of the first day learning some of the key historical figures and events that inform the contemporary theories that many people are familiar with today without knowing their influences or roots (which can help resolve some of the confusion). During that afternoon, participants experientially explore key principles and exercises from the Reichian, Bioenergetic, Gestalt, Hakomi, and Body-Mind Centering traditions and spend time integrating those experiences with their own approaches and techniques. Day Two focuses on the movement/expression lineage within the somatic psychology field, which includes dance, art, theater, martial arts, and other forms of creative process work. Again, participants spend the morning looking at key pioneers and historical events that influenced this branch of somatic psychology. In the afternoon, participants experientially relate the work of these pioneers to various psychotherapeutic modalities and theoretical orientations, such as Chace’s group work, Whitehouse’s Movement in Depth, Roth’s Five Rhythms, and Laban’s work with movement analysis. They then spend time integrating both days of the training with application areas they have in their own personal and professional arenas. NOTE: This training can be taken independently or as one of the pre/co-requisites for the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy Certification Program. Training Objectives: This training introduces major historical figures and contemporary trends in the field of somatic psychology and the concepts and practices associated with each of them. Participants are exposed to the energy model of the body, the Gestalt cycle of experience, major diaphragms of the body, structural and functional views on body organization, the relationship between body sensation and movement expression, the use of creativity in healing, the Laban system of movement observation, and developmental and trauma-informed considerations.
