Led by: David Schouela

From August 26, 2018 at 1:00 pm until August 26, 2018 at 4:00 pm at Dumbo

Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an adjunctive treatment for complex trauma. It 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.
