Program Details

For mental-health professionals, yoga teachers, bodyworkers, and everyone who wants to experience the psychology of their bodies.

The United States Association for Body Psychotherapy presents a mini-conference on somatic psychology—a discipline that combines somatic, psychic, and interpersonal dimensions. Somatic psychology treats the body as a source of wisdom to which we must listen.

This sampler presents four distinct body-mind therapies within the field of somatic psychology: Bioenergetics; Somatic Experiencing; Core Energetics; and a dynamic blend of yoga, mindfulness, and neuroscience.

Conference topics include

  • Ways to become conscious of what’s being held in your body
  • The implications of working in a somato-psychic model as a client or clinician
  • Various styles of somatic psychotherapeutic practices
  • How somatic psychology techniques are different from traditional counseling and talk therapy
  • What this field and these practices can do for you and your clients.

Discover what your body may be trying to teach you and experience the gifts of somatic psychology for your life and work. During breaks between conference sessions, enjoy all that Kripalu has to offer, including yoga and dance classes, hiking trails, sauna, and more.
