Somatic Relational Series in Modern Bioenergetic Analysis

We are experiencing stressful times in our world and many of us are experiencing increased anxiety, panic and fear. We are bombarded with images of violence and we are being directed to stay in a state of vigilance. Individuals want a way to manage and process their day-to-day experiences. Join us and learn techniques to help you stay grounded during these uncertain times and assist others.

Intended for licensed and pre-licensed mental health professions, master and doctoral-level clinicians, physicians and psychiatric nurses, as well as somatic work practitioners.
