Trauma experiences and their effects on the body, psyche and soul
Contemporary trauma theories are formulated on the understanding that a traumatic experience has made an impact on a person’s system that could not be fully processed and integrated, leaving the system in a state of stress or shock. Presently, neuroscience provides us with insights into how the application of an energy and somatic approach can support trauma recovery work.
We come to understand, that a trauma is not just held in the brain, but in the whole human system! The patterns of trauma are then manifested on the emotional, somatic and cognitive level of our life and limit our capacity for harmonious self-regulation, secure attachment, deep contact to ourselves and to the natural free expression of one's life-force.
Traumatic situations in early or later phases of life can lead to a protective withdrawal or to a distortion of reality. These conditions have a strong influence on the forming forces of the personal development and the coping mechanism of how a person lives their daily life. Traumatic experiences then often become ‘frozen patterns of history’.
This Integrative Trauma Therapy Training provides an expanded understanding to the field of trauma therapy, by recognizing and describing the modifying forces that developmental patterns can have in the life of a traumatized person. They greatly determine, how a person structures the information of a traumatic event, and how resources can be accessed and activated, so that the safe opening of these frozen patterns of history can lead to expanded coping strategies and healing processes.
In 40 years of practice and training in the field of Humanistic, Somatic and Transpersonal Psychology, Siegmar Gerken has developed an integrative approach to renegotiate traumatic experiences in relation to Developmental and Shock Traumas that are held in a person’s system.
The Core Evolution oriented Trauma Therapy Training also includes system approaches and addresses Family, Generational and Collective Trauma, healing approaches to Sexual Trauma, traumatic medical interventions, unintegrated states of consciousness (like Near Death Experience) and many other situations of life that can result out of chronic stress or traumatic conditions.
The Trauma Therapy Training consists of 4 teaching modules of 3 days: first day: 3 - 6pm; second day: 9.30am - 7.30pm; third day: 9.30am - 4.30pm.
This training can also be structured as an in-house training for Training Institutes, Companies (HR) or Organizations.
