Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga 20hr Workshop

Led by: Jenn Turner

From October 4, 2019 at 6:00 pm until October 6, 2019 at 5:00 pm at Gowanus

Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is a unique intervention based on the robust research that has emerged from The Trauma Center in Boston, MA. It has become a leading evidence-based adjunct treatment for complex trauma (sometimes called chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and is the only yoga-based practice accepted by SAMSHA and NREPP.
This 20-hour training (18 hours in person, 2 hours self-study) will emphasize the core components of the practice and process of trauma sensitive yoga, and how they relate to any anti-oppressive and trauma sensitive work. The training will provide specific tools to support participants to facilitate trauma-sensitive movement and breath practices that are vital to the healing process of complex trauma.
This training is designed for social workers, activists, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and other health care professionals who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex, intersectional trauma. There are no pre-requisites to take this workshop, all are welcome. Additionally, it is designed to support those professionals in expanding their current practice to incorporate aspects the Evidence Based Practice (EBP) of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) through expanding their knowledge of the impacts of complex trauma on the nervous system and broadening their repertoire with trauma sensitive movement and breath.
This weekend training qualifies as the pre-requisite for application for Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga's annual certification program
