Trauma, Movement & Resiliency
Trauma limits the body’s repertoire of movements, which affects trauma survivors in significant ways. Pat Ogden, founder of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, presents the view that we want a larger repertoire of movements, a wider range of movement, and therein a broader “movement vocabulary.” She says that resiliency is increased when we have enlarged our “movement vocabulary.”
This means that when we are able to yield and receive—in being open—as well as having the ability to extend and be protective when we need to be, we thereby have more fullness and resiliency in our lives.
I hope you join us for the training (July 13-15) where this will be further explored.
