The Co-Regulation Revolution, from master somatic psychotherapist and author Beth Dennison, is both co-regulation theory and applied psychology (simple practices to use right away). It is the latest work in her life-long study of shame, healthy relationships, embodiment, and clinical trauma work.

In therapy and in life, we can rewire our nervous systems for mutual regulation (co-regulation). This is essential for authentic, embodied relating, healing PTSD, effective collaboration, and building our capacity for social justice.

The Co-Regulation Revolution Book Cover

In The Co-Regulation Revolution, Beth gives practitioners clear maps, concrete tools and videos to: 

  • Heal from shame and developmental trauma with safe, appropriate, embodied connection.
  • Build greater capacity for co-regulation and resilience at the nervous system level.
  • Replace compulsive competition for status on the ladder of white supremacy culture with healthy, peer relationships.
  • Prevent burnout – because co-regulation is only co-regulation when it is good for both people

Interpersonal neurobiology and polyvagal theory have brought profound insights into psychology and psychotherapy regarding how essential our relationships are, including our own somatic body/mind relationship. As therapists, social workers, leaders, and teachers – we are positioned to help people build healthy, collaborative relationships that support social justice work and help heal attachment issues and complex PTSD. 

Clinical practitioners who train in Body Up Co-Regulation find the work to be:  “simple and powerful,”  “brilliant and uplifting,” “invaluable for authentic communication,” “safe and non-judgmental,” and  “incredibly helpful in a variety of real-life situations.”

Body Up Co-Regulation (BCR) draws from interpersonal neurobiology, Somatic Experiencing, trauma healing, Bodynamics, peer counseling, and yoga. The practices are therapeutic, diagnostic, and regulatory.

Reading this book can orient you to a whole new way of relating and doing therapy. Practicing the exercises will change your patterns of relating. Training in BCR is a deep dive into the subtle and potent world of working nervous system to nervous system.

In May 2023, Dr. Vivek Murthy, US Surgeon General, spoke to the current epidemic that co-regulation works to heal: “Given the profound consequences of loneliness and isolation, we have an opportunity, and an obligation, to make the same investments in addressing social connection that we have made in addressing tobacco use, obesity, and the addiction crisis.”

This work cultivates our capacity for peer relating and embodiment in relational space. It sounds simple, yet the layers of somatic learning and mutual regulation pave the way for a Co-Regulation Revolution – a cumulative, profound change in how we live and relate, together.

Praise for this work:

“In studying Body Up Co-Regulation (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. I highly recommend this work, especially for folks who are training in somatic psychotherapies.” 
– T.T., LMSW, Psychotherapist 

“The most significant lessons for me in BCR are an embodied understanding of how we are connected, and how subtly we influence each other through our bodies and nervous systems. I have a deeper appreciation for the relationships in my life, and I am so grateful for this new way to engage and support each other through embodied communication. BCR has made regulation much more accessible to me, and given me the confidence to share co-regulation with my friends, family, and colleagues.”
– Eyal Yona, Acupuncturist

“Because the exercises are both simple and powerful, I often incorporate them in my sessions with clients to help them come back into their bodies while experiencing more ease and a sense of their own boundaries. I highly recommend her classes!”
– Brigitta Sebesta, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner
