Fundamentals of Body Up! Co-Regulation
We know how critical good connection is for effective therapy, and for dealing with addictive behaviors and shame. Somatic therapist and originator of Body Up! Co-Regulation, Beth Dennison, will present the basic concepts of Body Up! co-regulation, and the established and emergent theories that support it.
This workshop includes simple exercises for relating and shifting states ns to ns. You will learn how and when to use them (and when not to), so that you and your clients can up-regulate, down-regulate, and build healthy relating skills, together.
What You Can Expect:
These practices are powerful, efficient and multi-layered. Use them to:
