Trauma Center – Trauma Sensitive Yoga Foundations Training
Presented by Keri Sawyer
Friday, June 28 – Sunday, June 30th
Cost $365.00 (10% Discount offered for Students with ID)
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an intervention based on research from The Trauma Center in Boston, MA. TCTSY is an evidence-based adjunct treatment for complex trauma (sometimes called chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and is the only yoga-based practice accepted by SAMSHA and NREPP.
This 20 hour training is designed for social workers, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and health care professionals who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex Trauma. The course will emphasize the core components of the practice and process of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga and will provide specific tools to support participants to facilitate trauma sensitive movement and breath practices that are vital to the healing process of complex trauma. Through developing an understanding of complex trauma, attachment theory, and the neuroscience underpinning the TCTSY methodology participants gain skills that support healing from long term trauma. Participants will learn to foster this anti-oppressive approach to healing through a trauma informed lens. Group lecture, practice through movement and breath as well as group practicum will be
offered. This weekend training qualifies as the prerequisite to apply for the 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) Certification Program.
