Ego State Therapy & Body Wisdom

There is an ancient wisdom of self-healing inherent in every human organism. If this “inner wisdom,” embodied in body knowledge, is included in therapy, many problems and symptoms can be solved more easily. If Ego-State Therapy is combined with somatic approaches like Somatic Experiencing® or Energy Psychology, based on the neurophysiological processes known from the polyvagal theory of Stephen Porges, top-down AND bottom-up corrective experiences become possible. This holistic approach enhances traumahealing and allows the personality to "become whole again". 


This experiential day seminar will focus on somatic strategies to regulate the nervous system, essential in the face of trauma. Participants will learn to utilize bodily expression and to focus on the reactions of the organism and the corresponding ego states, rather than working with the content of trauma. Thus, solutions often emerge more easily and naturally.



Presentation will include case studies and demo will show co- and self-regulation techniques and methods to work with somatic ego states, especially helpful in the treatment of preverbal trauma or attachment issues or with clients who are “too much in their heads”.



Identify and practice co-regulation and self-regulation skills.

Explain the principles and neurobiological processes related to safety, attachment, and danger.

Demonstrate ways to engage with clients' somatic Ego States and how to access body wisdom.
