Evening Intro:
During this talk we’ll focus on the Autonomy Stage of Development; 8 months to 2.5 years of age. We’ll demonstrate how disruption during this stage creates a fear of commitment and dependency on others. We’ll demonstrate how to work with specific muscles to transform this internal experience. This can create an immediate sense of curiosity, joy, and creativity, typical of a healthy child at this age.

The presentation will include didactic and experiential work with time for questions.

One-day Workshop:
Exploring the impact on adult behavior of disruptions in the Will Structure Stage, ages 2-4 years. An overview of the system and the training will also be presented.

We will explore related developmental movements, and how the muscles involved hold needed resources for the resolution of therapeutic issues. We will offer demonstration sessions. Problems originating from this age include:

  • Feeling overly responsible
  • Blaming others
  • Being stuck in a victim role
  • Problems with planning
  • Fear of your own power

*Note: CEU credit is available for this one day workshop.

About Bodynamics:
Bodynamics is a precise and practical approach to working with the body to make verbal psychotherapy more efficient and effective. This somatic therapy enables the practitioner to make precise interventions related to the developmental origins of your clients’ current problems.

Based on a wealth of empirical research the Bodynamics model describes how non-traumatic developmental disruptions are encoded in both mind and body. Bodynamic trainees learn to use specific muscles to build somatic resources that will guide, extend, and contain verbal therapy. This precision aids clients to sense new psychological competencies, resolve issues sooner, and integrate these changes directly into their lives.

Learning Bodynamics also sensitizes you to the themes of the developmental stages around which relationships and psychological development take place. Building your relationship with a client around these themes will greatly facilitate your ability to heal attachment disruptions.
