CENTER FOR SOMATIC STUDIES
New York City:
INTRODUCTION TO DEVELOPMENTAL SOMATIC PSYCHOTHERAPY
with Ruella Frank, Ph.D.
January 21-22, 2017, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm each day
Ongoing nonverbal interactions with our primary caregivers during the first year of life set a relational foundation that is apparent both in the everyday life of the adult and in psychotherapy. Even though our adult postural attitudes, gestures, gait and breathing patterns have changed over time, the foundations established in our first year remain readily observable and available. Attending to these patterns within psychotherapy is especially powerful.
During this workshop, participants learn how their relational styles originated through affective/movement patterns within the infant/caregiver dyad. Through movement, participants will explore these intrinsic yet unaware primary patterns which are part of present experiences and influence daily life. We then apply this understanding to the here-and-now of the client/therapist dyad.
