Trauma can have a debilitating negative impact on the overall quality of life of the individual. Trauma survivors experience symptoms ranging from hyper arousal to dissociation. This workshop will provide attendees with concrete skills to support facilitating Trauma Sensitive movement using forms of hatha yoga and breath awareness practices that can be vital to the healing process. Given the prevalence of trauma exposure in our society, effective treatment interventions for individuals are essential.

Developed at the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at the Justice Resource Institute in Brookline, Massachusetts, Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an empirically validated clinical intervention for complex trauma and chronic treatment resistant post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). TCTSY is equally accessible to all people regardless of age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, body type and physical ability. The TCTSY model is a rigorously tested, evidence-based adjunctive intervention developed and tested within the context established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations (SAMHSA). In addition to yoga, TCTSY has foundations in trauma theory, attachment theory, and neuroscience.

This workshop is for social workers and mental health providers who wish to bring aspects of TCTSY into their treatment with traumatized adults and teens in any setting. Participants will expand their knowledge of trauma’s impact on the nervous system and broaden their skill set to include Trauma Sensitive movement and breath awareness. A brief overview of trauma theory and the neurophysiology of trauma will be followed with practical TCTSY techniques that can be used immediately with clients.

There are two hours of required outside reading prior to the course and a forum to participate in discussion around the readings prior to and during the course.

This workshop qualifies as the prerequisite for anyone wishing to pursue the 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) Certification Program for Yoga Teachers and Mental Health Career Professionals.

Learning objectives:

  • Develop an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings that inform TCTSY;
  • Communicate how neuroscience explains the neurophysiological impact of trauma;
  • Develop an understanding of autonomic dysregulation;
  • Recognize common presentations of complex and developmental trauma;
  • Describe to clients the concept of ‘interoception’ to become more aware of the connection between their minds and bodies and sensations and emotions;
  • Incorporate at least 10 TCTSY techniques to manage dysregulation and allow for interoceptive exploration
  • Differentiate TCTSY from other types of yoga in your community to make appropriate referrals;

Research:

The history with links to additional research on TCTSY can be found on the History of TCTSY website.

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and facility therapists, psychologists, addiction professionals, medical professionals, and other interested individuals.

This program is for professional development and learning. We recognize that although many of us may have experiences of trauma the time we spend together will not be an intervention for our own individual healing. Talking and learning about trauma, even in the context of training, can be triggering.

Lunch is on your own.
