    Trauma, Shame, and Addiction: Starting from the Bottom Up

    We know that shame, addiction, and trauma often come as a package deal. Treating these issues with talk therapy isn’t always effective in attending to the deep roots of our clients’ problems. In order to properly address trauma we need to engage the limbic system utilizing somatic and experiential interventions. This seminar is designed to view addiction, shame, and trauma from an attachment perspective. The presenter will introduce a variety of somatic modalities and teach specific somatic and experiential tools to help clinicians provide symptom relief to clients. Participants will learn to provide an experience rather than an explanation and take away interventions they can perform with clients in a variety of settings.
