In the field of psychology, students orient to learning primarily via thinking and feeling. In the field of bodywork, students orient to the nonverbal experiences of sensation and life force. This difference in focus influences how students make meaning of their experience and apply it in their clinical practice. Integrating psychological and biological perspectives helps transform their capacity to see deeply into the complexity of psychobiological reality.
This training gives special attention to the personal somatic development of the practitioner. NATouch™ recognizes that to work with a client’s body, therapists must know their own. The training therefore includes a focus on personal psychobiological awareness to help practitioners develop an embodied presence that heightens their capacity for sensory attunement and resonance in their clinical work.
The NeuroAffective Touch™ Training welcomes professionally licensed participants including psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, analysts, bodywork and massage practitioners, medical doctors, nurses, and coaches. Psychotherapists and Mental Health Practitioners will progressively gain confidence in integrating bodywork and body-focused interventions, and body-centered interventions in clinical practice. Bodyworkers and Health Practitioners will expand verbal and psychological skills to integrate the use of identity-forming cognitive narratives that broaden the reach of body-centered interventions. This professional training is helpful to all practitioners who wish to enhance their clinical outcomes by integrating body and mind in the resolution of attachment trauma and emotional/relational deficits. CE credits can be purchased.
