The Trauma Series Part II: Implicit Predictions, Resilience, and Sociocultural Considerations
Perspectives from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
Recorded Friday 15 October 2021
With Dr Pat Ogden
CPD Credits: 3.5 hours
Traumatic events, attachment failures, and systemic oppression (historical and current) can become the central defining experiences that powerfully influence our implicit predictions and expectations of ourselves, others, and the world.
Established early on, patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting designed to navigate an unfriendly, unsafe or oppressive world are solidified with repetitive use, and become harder to modify as time goes on.READ MORE...
These patterns are held in place by automatic, non-conscious physical and physiological habits. Their grip can be loosened, and resilience can be strengthened by working directly with the body.
This webinar elucidates how body-oriented interventions can increase resilience throughout life. Pat Ogden will discuss the influence of mainstream values and white supremacist ideologies on psychotherapy, and the inevitability of implicit bias as it affects therapeutic relationship, assessment, and interventions. The role of the body in privilege/oppression dynamics, as well as in developing resilience in the face of current trauma, such as the pandemic and ongoing oppression, will be addressed. This approach will be illustrated through lecture, case examples, and brief experiential exercises that can also be used with clients.
CPD – An optional certificate of attendance for up to 3.5 hours of CPD, based on completion of a multiple choice questionnaire, will be available soon.
