Saturday November 3, 2018 in Santa Barbara

Now, more than ever, our field must support methodological approaches that foster the repair of disconnection.

We seek to highlight relational approaches to body psychotherapy that galvanize the restorative properties of our innate vitality.

Speakers will include but not be limited to topics such as embodied approaches to relational trauma, vitality, the use of movement in psychotherapeutic praxis, working with infants in clinical settings, sexual health and vitality, interpersonal neurobiology and more. The conference will feature speakers from wide intersections of our field from Reichian analysis, bioenergetics, Hakomi, Somatic Experiencing, Focusing, and more!
