Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Introduction:
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a body-oriented, talking therapy developed in the 1980s by Pat Ogden, informed by the work of Ron Kurtz (1990) and the Rolf Method of Structural Integration (Rolf 1987) and enriched by the contributions from the fields of attachment, neuroscience, and dissociation. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy blends cognitive and emotional approaches, verbal dialogue, and physical interventions that directly address the implicit memories and neurobiological effects of trauma. By using bodily experience as a primary entry point in trauma therapy, rather than the events or the "story,” we attend to how the body is processing information, and its interface with emotions and cognitive meaning-making.
The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute out of Boulder, CO has trainings around the world and typically only in larger metropolitan areas of the US.  Starting this May, SPI will be offering their 80 hour, Level I training entitled Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses, and Traumatic Memory in Asheville, NC.  Please join us for this month’s NASW meeting and learn about this innovative and well respected method of treating trauma.  This power point presentation will be provided by Jo Ann Orr, LCSW.  Jo has a private practice out of the Boone Healing Arts Center and is a SPI Level II trained therapist and enthusiastic supporter of this method.
