Embodied Inherited Family Trauma Training Mentorship

January – June 2023

This training is for those who wish to integrate trauma-informed somatic and family constellation processes into their work. These additional modalities empower you to support clients to:

  • Identify and differentiate from unconscious entanglements with systemic patterns
  • Resolve inherited trauma dynamics to experience new freedom & possibilities
  • Down-regulate, attune to innate health, and complete long-held somatic imprints
  • Create healthier boundaries, relationships, and responsibilities
  • Embody greater vitality, resilience, and clarity

Classes are held, via zoom and/or in-person, two Sunday afternoons each month. One class is a demo session in which you observe Bruce & I facilitating family constellations. The second class is discussion and experiential practice, in which we:

  • Unpack and practice the lessons and tools from the online lectures
  • Deepen your attunement through the skills of being, listening, naming
  • Enhance how to co-regulate and resource yourself & your clients
  • Identify and distinguish the dynamics of inherited and early trauma
  • Explore symptoms & language as a guide to unconscious entanglements
  • Work with the body to integrate fragments and grow coherence
  • Facilitate individual constellations using the field or inner images
  • Support systemic and somatic resolutions with healing sentences
  • Enhance healing and integration with at home rituals & practices
