CURRICULUM & BREAKDOWN
EXAMPLE FOR 2-WEEK IN-PERSON INTENSIVE

WEEK 1

Week 1 is all about creating a solid foundation for trauma informed therapeutic work. Trainees learn how to conduct a session, how to relate professionally with a client in a therapeutic setting and how to safely navigate any concerns and emergency measures. The Map is taught, which is how to professionally and confidentially get enough information both verbally from the client via intake form and also while working on the body, listening and paying attention to specific queues that are also taught. During week 1, participants also undergo their own processes of gaining enough knowledge to understanding where their own nervous system is at and what their personal Maps may look like. Week 1 is designed to enable individuals to be able to start conducting trauma transformation somatic body work sessions safely, confidently and effectively.
