Trauma imprints a legacy of hopeless, despair, and shame which prevents building a foundational sense of self and interrupts resolution. Using the Parallel Lives model, Becoming Safely Embodied helps clients discover how the past is intruding into their present. Using a mindfulness-based approach, they can learn to track triggers, slow down reactivity, and let internal experience rise, crest, and fall.
This presentation presents the Becoming Safely Embodied model and its integration of ancient traditions from the yoga and mindfulness world into attachment theory and psychotherapy. These practices help clients to build new pathways that remap their internal experience and facilitate a solid sense of self capable of holding whatever comes up. With greater internal capacity, the client can contain and tolerate the emotional intensity that healing requires.
