Time & Location
About the Event
Rachel Michaelsen, LCSW & Kristin Miller, PhD
*This is a two-day training and attendance is required for both days. Day two will be held on April 23.
Before you can address larger scale traumas that impact system involved youth who are survivors of developmental trauma, they must be able to self-regulate their nervous system. Learn ways to help rebuild the nervous system and regulation system caused by repetitive lack of caregiver attunement, abuse and neglect for system involved youth who have experienced developmental trauma. Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology provide effective methods of self and co-regulation. To create a safe and effective environment for healing, provider’s nervous system must be regulated as they interact with system involved youth and families.
In this course participants will learn to:
- identify their own state of nervous system regulation
- self-regulate in different situations
- identify client’s dysregulation
- co-regulate with clients
- teach clients to regulate themselves
This course is highly experiential and participatory. As we will be focusing on teaching clients to be present and in their bodies, please plan to be present with your camera working for the whole time and have paper, writing instrument and colored pens, pencils or crayons available for self-reflection.
