Dr. Pat Ogden

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

Discuss three risks of using body interventions with dissociative clients 
Describe two ways to use directed mindfulness to support internal communication among parts
Explain three interventions that use posture, movement, and self-touch to integrate parts of the self

Practical, easy to implement somatic interventions designed to initiate change in entrenched patterns will be shared.

Registration includes WORKSHEETS to be used with clients.

In this webinar, Dr. Ogden will elucidate the challenges, risks, and rewards of working somatically with dissociative clients.

  • The three major influences on Sensorimotor Psychotherapy’s approach to dissociation and parts work will be discussed.
  • Practical, easy to implement somatic interventions designed to initiate change in entrenched patterns will be shared.

We will explore the theory of structural dissociation, emphasizing how the body reflects and sustains 'daily life' parts of the self as well as those stuck in 'trauma time,' and how the body can be an asset in helping these parts communicate and cooperate.

Additional topics covered include:

  • risks and challenges of using body oriented interventions for dissociative clients
  • tips to introduce body psychotherapy to the naïve client
  • the importance of body-oriented psychoeducation
  • the risks and liabilities of going “too far” and not going “far enough”
  • titration strategies to work at the regulatory boundaries of the window of tolerance
  • the use of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy’s “directed mindfulness” to mitigate triggering when working with the body, capitalize on neuroplasticity, and develop new neural pathways

Recognizing that new actions, like new words, can be experienced as threatening or adversarial to certain parts of the self, we will look at how to prevent overriding internal parts when working with posture and movement, and how to draw on the body to integrate a client’s dissociative parts.

Mindful mapping of internal parts will be introduced along with worksheets to be used with clients that are designed to support mapping the physical tendencies of dissociative parts, encourage mindful awareness of them, and identify their resources.

Participants will walk away with a new perspective on how simple techniques that target the body can begin to open the door to change even for the most dissociative clients.

We will explore the theory of structural dissociation, emphasizing how the body reflects and sustains 'daily life' parts of the self as well as those stuck in 'trauma time.'

We will examine how the body can be an asset in helping these parts communicate and cooperate.
