Module 1

Monday, March 26th, 2018

March features expert Kathy Kain, who has practiced and taught bodywork skills for over 30 years. Her trainings focus on teaching somatic touch, self-regulation skills, resilience, and trauma recovery. She is also a senior trainer worldwide in Somatic Experiencing.Ò Kathy’s webinar is on Simple Strategies to Detect and Release Survival Responses that Enhance Resilience.

Kathy’s trainings cover various interwoven focus areas, including trauma recovery, somatic touch, self-regulation skills, and resilience. These focus areas ultimately weave together into a unified somatic approach to touch, awareness, and relationship. Her educational approach encourages students to engage an ongoing practice that deepens their skills and expertise as they gradually embody the work and make it their own. She is also an adjunct faculty member at Sonoma State University and is currently finishing a book with Steve Terrell, developmental therapist.

Module 2

April, 2018

April features Dr. Stanley Rosenberg, author of a new book, Accessing the Healing Power of the Vagus Nerve: Self-Help Exercises for Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, and Autism (NOTE: Dr. Stephen Porges has written the foreword of this book!). Stanley has been a Rolfer since 1973, a craniosacral therapist since 1987, and has taught structural integration, myofascial release, and visceral massage, as well as biomechanical craniosacral therapy. Although not a psychotherapist, he has recently been working with psychotherapists to teach them how to use his material and exercises with clients.

Stanley’s webinar, Return to Autonomic Balance, will discuss the 12 cranial nerves, which are all related to the 3 polyvagal circuits. He will demonstrate how simple techniques and self- exercises (which he will demonstrate) can help to restore the social engagement properties of the ventral vagal system. He explains how his long-term goal is to encourage the autonomic nervous system to return naturally from a state of stress (spinal sympathetic activation) or depression (activity in the dorsal vagal circuit) to a state of social engagement and a return to physical and emotional safety.

Dr. Stanley Rosenberg
Stanley Rosenberg has been doing body work for more than 40 years. He was one of the world’s first cranial sacral therapists, and has also studied osteopathy, rolfing, tai chi, and the polyvagal theory of Stephen Porges. He was the first cranio-sacral therapist in the world to apply these body therapy skills to improve the function of the five cranial nerves whose proper function is necessary to bring the client to the desired state of social engagement. Based in Denmark, he brought Stephen Porges to Copenhagen and has co-taught in four seminars along with him in the USA and Denmark. His book, Accesing the Healing Power of the Vagus Nerve: Self-Help Exercises for Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, and Autism will be released later this year.
