This 3 hr workshop is an informative and experiential group class to learn how your nervous system works and gain tools to discharge stress and anxiety the way your body is designed to.
Stress and Anxiety Workshops
We are experiencing an increasing amount stress and tension on a global scale, not just with the 2020 pandemic, but also with environmental devastation, climate change, and political rivalries. We might go so far as to say that we are currently experiencing a “cultural trauma,” on multiple different levels. Many individuals are feeling this cultural trauma personally, especially if they have previously struggled with stress or anxiety. Many people have experienced their mental health drastically affected by the events of this past year.
For these reasons, we’ve decided to begin conducting virtual workshops rooted in the principles of Somatic Experiencing, to help you learn how your nervous system works and gain tools to discharge stress and anxiety the way your body is designed to.
About Somatic Experiencing®
Somatic Experiencing ® (SETM) utilizes awareness of body sensation to discharge trapped energy from the nervous system and renegotiate the choices available to the nervous system. As a methodology and series of tools for working with trauma and the physical symptoms that manifest
from trauma, SETM presents a unique option, especially for groups of individuals. It concentrates on what is happening inside the body, rather than the stories and events which surround a trauma. Through this it emphasizes a sense of control and choice, and limits the unintentional reactivation of trauma that often occurs during many traditional psychotherapeutic techniques.
GROUP STRESS AND ANXIETY CLASS
These group classes serve as a great access point in laying the foundational understanding of how the nervous system operates and where symptoms associated with overwhelm, burnout, stress, anxiety, and traumatic experience are coming from.
Conducting the class as a group serves the dual purpose of educating a greater number of individuals at once, as well as supporting a community culture which strives to gather and learn tools to increase resiliency.
This class is extremely helpful as a first step for individuals desiring individual therapy regarding traumatic experiences. The class has learning objectives which include:
• Understanding how the nervous system responds to stress, and how stressors become trapped in the nervous system as trauma
• Understanding the normalcy of stress and trauma and how this relates to resiliency
• Bring awareness to the process of “over-riding” and how this impacts traumatic experiences
• Laying a foundation to listen to needs and learn how to respond with choice
• Practicing the tools and skill of sensation tracking
• Learning and practicing how to orient to and from an activated state - pendulation
