Pat Ogden, PhD is back and I have to say, I did it! I think I’ve done my best interview, yet, with her! (Not that this is the best interview that she’s done. I’m not saying that.)
I feel this is a really good one in that we go into a lot of detail about one particular case of Pat’s, and my goal here was to highlight the use of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, (SPI), rather than simply talk about it in general terms.
Pat is a pioneer in somatic psychology and both Founder and Education Director of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute®, an internationally recognized school specializing in somatic–cognitive approaches for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder and attachment disturbances.
She is co-founder of the Hakomi Institute, a clinician, consultant, international lecturer and trainer, and first author of the book, Trauma and the Body: A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy. Her second book, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment (2015) is a practical guide to integrate Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® into the treatment of trauma and attachment issues.
Dr. Ogden is currently developing Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® for children, adolescents and families with colleagues.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy live webcast, Thursday, June 11, 2020.
Understanding and Addressing Hopelessness and Helplessness through the lens of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
The last several months have been disorienting for all; in the midst of so many of us living in fear of both the virus and its economic consequences, the United States is once again shaken as cities erupt amidst feelings of anger, anxiety, hopelessness and despair.
Join Dr. Bonnie Goldstein with discussant Dr. Pat Ogden, creator of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, for a special webinar on exploring ways to collaboratively address hopelessness, helplessness and despair amidst arduous complications and challenges.
We will deconstruct the negative or self-defeating messages our clients say to themselves while concomitantly addressing damaging messages implicitly and/or explicitly directed towards our clients.
Dr. Goldstein will explore the particular challenges therapists face when working with our younger clients, adolescents and young adults, fostering resilience in the face of uncertainty. Dr. Ogden will offer a wider understanding of the issues of hopelessness, helplessness, and vulnerability with an adult population.
Join the webcast by visiting sensorimotor.org. It will be offered live on Thursday, June 11 and then subsequently sold as a pre-recorded digital seminar.
