In the treatment of the effects of trauma, its inherent relationship with spirituality provides a vital link in the therapeutic process. The understanding of a person’s, felt, spiritual connection is central to the therapeutic process. If we are unable to access a person’s spirituality, we may find ourselves trapped, as therapists, in areas that are fraught with pitfalls and “tight corners.” The intimate association between trauma and spirituality suggests therapeutic avenues that support the authentic transformation of traumatic experiences. Through the use of didactic material- including brain research, experiential practice incorporating the bodily “felt-sense,” and video material, we will introduce Somatic Experiencing® as a way to reconnect with the deep self. The focus will be on developing practical tools to gracefully enhance the relationship between trauma and spirituality within the therapeutic experience.
