MACP Program Presents ‘Healing Trauma’ Seminar

Antioch University Santa Barbara’s Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology program presents “Healing Trauma Through the Body-Mind Connection” on Saturday, Nov. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Community Hall on campus.

Wendy Elliott, MA, LPCC, SEP, BC-DMT, will lead the seminar, co-sponsored by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Santa Barbara chapter, which will focus on how to heal trauma through the body-mind connection.

Drawing from the emerging field of somatic psychology and interpersonal neurobiology, this workshop provides participants with a basic understanding of how awareness, body, breath, mindfulness, and movement are integrated in the therapy session.

Participants in the workshop will:

  1. Gain understanding in the fields of somatic psychology, somatic experiencing, dance-movement therapy, and mindfulness based psychotherapy. 
  2. Understand the neurophysiology of emotions and behavior.
  3. Observe the connection between the nervous system, cognitive schemas, and emotional self-regulation. 
  4. Summarize how the stress response and unresolved trauma influence emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and body. 
  5. Learn to integrate awareness and movement techniques with other psychotherapy approaches. 

Presenter Wendy Elliott is a licensed counselor, board certified dance movement therapist, and somatic experiencing practitioner. She is an adjunct faculty member at AUSB and also has a holistic psychotherapy practice in Ojai. She offers professional trainings that focus on how the mind-body connection may be supported within the psychotherapeutic context. 

Space is limited so please click here to register. General admission to the seminar is $110. The cost for NASW and CAMFT members as well as AUSB alumni is $90, and the cost for current AUSB students is $60. The cost includes snacks and six Continuing Education Units. Please pay at the door by cash or check payable to NASW Santa Barbara.
