In this experiential all-day workshop the presenters will demonstrate with audience participation various creative movement interventions that can be used with families that have experienced trauma. These interventions allow clients to embody in action, dance, and psychodrama healing metaphors of therapeutic change. The didactic portion of the program will review neurobiological theories on how trauma affects initiative, motor movements, sensation, proprioception, and somatic experiences in families and discuss why creative movement interventions aimed at the whole body’s experience of trauma can be particularly helpful in healing. The participants will have an opportunity to create a movement intervention for a ”stuck” family in their practice by applying principles learned in the workshop. Issues such as dissociative responses, rage reactions, misattunement, cognitive distortions, and emotional dysregualtion will be addressed and creative exercises that target these issues will be demonstrated. At the end of the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to use these interventions to work on their own vicarious trauma and to deal with any self-critical cognitions that can interfere with their therapeutic effectiveness.
