Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an adjunctive treatment for complex trauma that focuses on giving clients an opportunity to practice noticing body sensation (interoception) in the context of a safe relationship based on an invitational approach to yoga forms with no physical assists. TCTSY was recently listed in SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). This workshop will be delivered in a lecture format with some optional chair based yoga, followed by time for Q&A.
At the end of this event, participants will be able to:
Describe the theoretical underpinnings of Trauma Center – Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY)
Explain how TCTSY differs from other forms of yoga
Describe how TCTSY has been successfully applied in various treatment settings.
