Somatic Self-Regulation Methods for Children – Workshops for Therapists, Teachers and Parents

Somatic Centering is a way of understanding the body through metaphors, images and movement exploration, perceiving the somatic expressions as a ‘window’ to a person’s mental and emotional experiences.

 

Often as a result of traumatic events, the nervous system becomes over-activated and can trigger the following:

  • anger
  • panic
  • irritability
  • hyperactivity
  • dysfunctional behaviors
  • accompanying physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches and dizziness

The Somatic Centering approach helps to address these issues by examining the client’s nervous system activation cycle and addressing the underlying causes.
