Using Safe Touch in Somatic Psychotherapy
(Mar 2023)

Touch is one of the most elemental, complex and evocative interventions we can use in somatic psychotherapy. In this workshop, we will learn how to use this powerful intervention skillfully and safely. We will discuss the value of touch, and the impact that skillful touch can have in the therapeutic process. In this hands-on workshop we’ll explore the power of transformational touch when working with core patterns in the body.

Workshop highlights:

  • The ethics of touch and when not to use touch
  • How to use safe and boundaried touch explorations 
  • The Hakomi technique of taking over in mindfulness
  • Somatic touch tracking for self-regulation
