SOMA – PROGRAM TRAINING
Modules taught by Marcelo Muniz: participants learn and apply the concepts and tools for work using Touch and Movement.
Modules taught by Sonia Gomes: participants learn how to integrate the Touch & Movement Education in an SE clinical approach.
Instructors: (Sonia Gomes, PhD)
01) Summary work of: Peter A. Levine (SE); Stephen Porges – (Polyvagal Theory); Ida Rolf (Structural Integration); Hubert Godard ( Tonic Function – Movement Work).
02) How traumatic experiences can impact Body, Mind & Brain and create their blockages.
03) Embodiment = A path to restore trauma and self-regulation
04) Embryological development and spatial organization; haptic system and gravitational field
05) The inner and outer space organization through movement in the gravitational field
06) The polyvagal theory applied to touch
07) Bodily sensation/language = interception - exteroception and proprioception.
08) Demos using touch & Movement within resonance
09) Practice of protocols to reach stability in the body orientated to space, balance, posture and movement patterns.
Module I – Learning concepts and tools of Touch & Movement –
INSTRUCTOR: (Marcelo Muniz)
01) Fundamentals of quality of touch and presence
02) Touch resonance and perception
03) Body language in static and dynamic states
04) Tonic function and haptic system
05) Embodiment as transferential element
06) Core Stability
07) Coordination, time, space and motion
08) How to distinguish inhibition and restriction in perception and their relations with expressivity and impressivity
09) How to stimulate the continuity and movement coordination and its self-expression
Module II - Integration of the work in a SE clinical approach
Instructor: Sonia Gomes
01) Shock and trauma related to timing and functions?
02) First imprint in delivering
03) Types of trauma: Transgenerational effects of trauma (existential threat, loss, bonding) Consequences of trauma
04) Diagnosis- biography- personality split from trauma and surviving split
05) Where injury meets emotions? Surviving parts active?
06) Communication with NS/emotions and connective tissue
06) Plasticity reached by integration in communication
07) Development of affective system
08) GHIA: Response to stress lasting effects on deep brain structure
09) Fractal geometry - similar pattern in trauma (GHIA)
10) Gesture of character (hologram)
11) Similar pattern in bonding trauma, shock and physical injury
12) Complexes traumas and syndromes
13) How to modulate hormones of stress
Instructor: Marcelo Muniz
01) Learn new approaches to tissue and joint mobilization and re- patterning movement
02) Restoring Mobility
03) The phenomenology of spatial integration
04) How trauma remains stuck in the body structure thereby reducing the body's capacity for embodiment, perception of the other and orientation.
05) Evoking support, stability and spatial orienting using touch and movement coordination
06) Exploration in meaning/ faith and body awareness
07) The kinesfere and peripersonal space
08) Creating stability in the body as a whole
09) Vergence to expand perception
Instructor: Sonia Gomes
01) Body representing structures for basic orientation
02) Emotional experiences and expression, when they meet trauma
03) Emotion and feeling are restrained in trauma
04) How the pre-frontal cortex is related to emotional stability and sense of identity
05) Understanding emotions related by an integrative neural circuit
06) Emotions and the process of consciousness
07) Resonance, rhythm and synchronicity
08) Focusing: support trauma healing regarding its memories (implicit or explicit)
09) How to track traumatic emotional energy, associated with the stored memories through three levels of nervous system organization: Interoceptors/exteroceptors and proprioceptors integrating with the triune brain, enlighten by the SE's map
10) Embodiment for complex traumas
11) Unblock restrictions in the body and movement that correspond with symptoms and behaviors to establish a balance in the autonomic nervous system
12) Integration and the principle of wholeness
