Those of us who steward the restorative process for survivors of trauma are exposed to stories, histories and emotions that impact our own well-being and worldview.
In tending to others, our own hearts encounter suffering and fear. Current neuropsychiatric research suggests that human beings are soft-wired for empathy, which connects us, and increases our risk for vicarious trauma. Research supports contemplative practices and physical activity as fundamental to well-being. The body and movement provide the most direct access to change that promotes well-being. This 15-hour course provides theoretical, scientific and contemplative rationale for the use of dance movement therapy with traumatized clients and as a measure of protection, self-care and increased compassion. This playshop provides participants with a practical introduction and overview to using DMT in work with survivors of trauma as well as for our own resilience and well-being.
