Trauma-Informed Yoga Nidra for Clinical Professionals

PRESENTED BY DR. JAMIE MARICH

Yoga nidra is a sleep-style meditations that is gaining popularity in the clinical professions. Based on a teaching from the ancient Upanishads, this powerful approach brings together a variety of awareness techniques and strategies to facilitate a greater sense of ease in meditating and working with intention. In this online training, trauma expert and yoga teacher Dr. Jamie Marich teaches you the basic principles of yoga nidra. She walks you through a 20-25 minute script specifically prepared for working via telehealth or other remote platforms. While yoga nidra can be a powerful adjunct to any trauma therapy, it has special potential for bridging together aspects of trauma therapy you may not feel comfortable delivering remotely, specifically because of its focus on intention. While not a full-scale yoga nidra training, this will get you started with the basics to use alongside any approach to trauma therapy.

This training is designed for mental health clinicians, addiction professionals, or others currently conducting remote telehealth work in a human services profession.

Treating Oppression Trauma with EMDR Therapy: Why Doing Your Own Work is the First and Most Important Step

PRESENTED BY Roshni Chabra, LMFT

Treating Oppression Trauma with EMDR Therapy: Why Doing Your Own Work is the First and Most Important Step will introduce the underlying components of systemic oppression and provide ways to recognize, examine and address oppression trauma. This presentation will offer the opportunity for EMDR Therapists, Consultants and Faculty to recognize the intersectionality of our own experience and learn how to provide a platform for being trauma focused with clients, consultees and trainees. Breaking down the tactics of oppression and its daily impact will assist with being able to identify to our clients/trainees/consultees’ layers of identities while validating their trauma. In addressing our own experiences with privilege and oppression trauma, we create room for our clients to be able to genuinely show up as their complete selves. With the foundation of more deeply understanding oppression, we are able to show up as a compassionate witness and hold space where healing from oppression trauma is possible.     

  1. Analyze the layers, tactics, and impact of oppression. 
  2. Identify and examine structural forms of oppression. 
  3. Distinguish oppression trauma and the impact of it on your clients to avoid retraumatization.
  4. Demonstrate ways to assist clients with understanding their intersectionality and oppression trauma. 
  5. Assess how using a trauma focused practice can provide a foundation to address oppression trauma. 
  6. Underline the importance of being a compassionate witness.
  7. Investigate the connections between abuse, oppression and trauma. 
  8. Discover a deeper understanding of privilege and be able to identify your own privilege. 
  9. Identify how oppression trauma can be treated with EMDR Therapy and the nuances that allow healing of systemic oppression.
