Module 6

September 25, 2018

On Tuesday September 25th, 2018  Raja Selvam and Maggie Phillips will presentEmotional Embodiment in Integral Somatic Psychology.

According to our understanding of the physiology of emotions, pleasant emotions are generated by shifting different body systems into states of regulation, while unpleasant emotions are generated through states of dysregulation and stress.

One of the main points Raja makes is the care required for successful tracking of emotional experiences through body states. He points out how overwhelming emotions can shut the body down altogether or create stress and dysregulation that can create a host of psychosomatic symptoms and difficulties including pain.

In this seminar, you will learn:

  • How to expand the body to expand emotional experience or support emotional experience in one part of the body by expanding another;
  • How to help clients tolerate unpleasant experiences by working through defenses against difficult emotions such as grief;
  • How to help clients understand or make sense out of emotional experiences;
  • How to activate appropriate action systems in relation to negative emotions;
  • How the body can be used as a container for emotions and for building affect tolerance;
  • How verbal expression of negative emotions can increase external support.
