Are you a therapist in a setting working with underserved populations? This webinar will offer somatic activities to enhance your work with clients. For advanced students of Hakomi this webinar brings a fresh take on utilizing Hakomi with underserved populations.
Honoring the bio-psycho-social world of our clients is deeply important when applying somatic therapies. This webinar will introduce you to Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy’s unique application of mindfulness. We will spend some time raising awareness of internalized impacts of systems of oppression. We will consider the dynamics of safety and trust when building relationship with people who are part of underserved populations.
Through experiential exercises, you will explore the implementation of mindful self-study as an approach to illuminate internalized impacts of our bio-psycho-social worlds and offer clients opportunity for embodied empowerment. At the core of this presentation is a deeply held belief that it is a practitioner’s role to respect a client’s voice in how they choose to interact with systemic oppression. Hakomi’s approach to transformation bridges loving presence and mindful awareness to listen for what arises from within a person and provide attuned facilitation of healing.
Main Points of Workshop
▪ Understanding Hakomi’s unique application of mindfulness
▪ Identifying key underserved populations
▪ Considerations in building safety and trust with underserved populations
▪ Utilizing mindfulness to illuminate and transform the internalized impact of systemic oppression
▪ Empowered embodiment as transformation
▪ Creating context for empowered embodiment to be portable.
Participants will be able to:
▪ Apply three considerations in creating safety and trust with under-served populations
▪ Conduct one mindful self-study strategy to access internalized impacts of system oppression
▪ Utilize an understanding of empowered embodiment
▪ Explain to their client how to integrate these tools learned in the counseling session and apply them outside the session
