ISITTA Level 1 offers cohort-based live online learning. To deepen the learning from each weekend, this training features an instructor-facilitated practice group after each module.

Faculty: Manuela Mischke-Reeds
Practice Group Teacher: Ashley Ross

Not all somatic or mindfulness-based techniques yield results. How do we tailor these powerful tools to neurodiverse clients? In this module, you’ll learn focused trauma-informed somatic techniques that you can apply with a broad range of clients. These polyvagal-informed somatic applications will help you to build a tool set for regulating your client’s nervous system while staying resourced within yourself. Above all, the techniques you learn in this module will help you to access your innate somatic intelligence and use it to inform your work with trauma clients.

Faculty: Manuela Mischke-Reeds 
Guest Instructor: Arielle Schwartz
Practice Group Teacher: Ashley Ross

This module focuses on how to work with relational trauma, including developmental and complex trauma. You’ll learn attachment-focused methods that are sensitive to your clients’ internalized systems as well as the complexity of the therapeutic relationship. Topics we’ll explore include working with proprioception and relationship, using expressive, symbolic language in trauma therapy, developing a greater sensitivity to trauma transference, and offering safe and respectful somatic interventions that honor your client’s therapeutic learning style.

Faculty: Manuela Mischke-Reeds
Guest Instructor: Staci Haines
Practice Group Teacher: Ashley Ross

This module will examine the interconnection of individual and collective trauma. We’ll look at how somatic imprints of social location, somatic patterns of oppression and systemic trauma have imprinted clients’ experience. We’ll also examine the central importance of the trauma practitioner’s mindset in safely addressing systemic trauma and explore gentle therapeutic techniques for working in this domain.
