The Body in Psychotherapy

Radix Australia

The Body in Psychotherapy

Presenters: Narelle McKenzie and Anthea Fraser

This five-day workshop in two parts, will blend didactic and experiential learning. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the basic concepts under-pinning mind-body therapeutic work and experientially learn how the application of these concepts can deepen their own embodiment and that of their clients. Participants will explore the significance of dissociation vs embodiment, grounding, centering, building self contact and contact with others and how to physically apply these important concepts in the form of therapeutic interventions. The concept of muscular armouring and its relationship to emotional expression and containment, will also be addressed. On the final day there will be supervised practice in the application of the concepts presented. 

This workshop is the first in a series of training modules. The modules can be taken by themselves, or can lead to certification as a Radix Somatic Psycho- therapist. For the Certification Program, the modular structure of the training gives flexibility as to when a trainee enters the program, begins their individual experiential work, and begins working with clients of their own. The Certification Program can be discussed with the training staff at the workshop.
