We people need people! Our longevity, health and quality of life depend on the quality of our relationships, nervous system to nervous system.

Research tells us that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the strongest predictor of successful therapeutic outcomes. In this workshop, we orient to using the therapeutic relationship to rewire clients’ nervous systems for safe, embodied relationships, in therapy and in their lives.
  • What triggers them and how quickly do they devolve into primitive behavior, simplistic, black and white thinking, or emotional numbness?
  • What are their resources for regulation
  • How is their capacity for embodiment? 
  • How robust is their sense of agency?

“I highly recommend this work, especially for folks who are training in somatic psychotherapies. During the pandemic and the abrupt shift to telehealth therapy, I was seeking inspiration for how to re-engage my clients somatically on screen. In studying BCR, I found engagement and embodied tools to help my clients shift states and to foster an experience of secure attachment in sessions. Beth Dennison’s work is brilliant. It has uplifted me and my practice from the first 3-hour workshop I took with her.”

Beth Dennison

Beth brings 50 years of teaching, psychotherapy, bodywork and study of neuroscience, including Polyvagal theory, to designing learning experiences that rewire our brains for connection and co-regulation. She models the embodiment she teaches. 

Her groundbreaking book on Body Up! Co-Regulation provides a much needed remedy to the disconnection and dysregulation that pervade modern culture. She developed Body Up! Co-Regulation to rewire our nervous systems for peer relationships. We need to trust peer relationships if we are to get off of the hierarchical ladder of oppression.
