Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a method that integrates sensorimotor processing with cognitive and emotional processing. Unprocessed somatic responses are shown to contribute to many PTSD symptoms. Trauma profoundly affects the body and many symptoms of traumatized individuals are somatically based, therefore Sensorimotor Psychotherapy uses the body as a primary entry point in processing trauma.
EMDR psychotherapy addresses experiences that have overwhelmed the brain’s coping capacity, and thereby generated traumatic symptoms and/or harmful coping strategies. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can heal in an accelerated rate from trauma. During EMDR therapy the client attends to emotionally disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on an external stimulus.
The theory proposes that trauma can fragment our personality. This division is created to protect the brain from being overwhelmed by fear. The fragmentation is meant to be a short-term protection, but tends to turn into a long term coping mechanism. Clients with dissociation will often find that traditional therapy doesn’t help or makes them feel worse. They may find symptoms of the trauma overwhelm them and they shut down or use addiction to cope.
Relational Somatic Psychology is an integrated approach that considers body, mind, and spirit when addressing the whole field of human suffering and transformation. The process through which we grow and change is like the course of a stream: flowing and organic. In the relational somatic process we explore fixed ways of perceiving oneself and the world, examine the truth of our existing systems of meaning, and co-create new experiences.
