Description

The science of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) investigates the mind/body link. This course focuses on PNI in relationship to body memory and provides radical feeling-centered, body-focused awareness tools for both professionals and general health seekers. In the text, the latest findings are transformed from the mind/body science of psychoneuroimmunology into practical deep-feeling techniques for busting dysfunction, mobilizing the healing system, quickening recovery and breaking out of ruts.

In this course, you will:

  • Recognize the author's descriptions of sanity; how feelings are dealt with in our healing systems, and how important bodily and emotional feelings are for healing and wellness
  • Examine the "internalized stressor" and communicate the benefits of "body-focused therapy"
  • Identify the biology of memory, the three levels of the human brain, and how these each contribute to "body memory"
  • Distinguish between psychological, physiological and structural tension in yourself and your clients
  • Recognize the possibility for elements of fragmented feelings in your own and your client's experience
  • Learn how to center yourself in a therapeutic mindset that carries healing intent through your touch
  • View the boundaries and connectedness between psychological, physiological, and structural tension in yourself and your clients
  • Incorporate strategies for a bodywork treatment plan that includes awareness of your client's feelings and/or life context
  • Review the professional roles and boundaries for a bodywork treatment plan that interfaces with body-focused psychotherapy

Full of illuminating and moving case studies, this course will help you better understand the emotional component of your work and facilitate longer-lasting positive results for your clients.

This was a very challenging course. The insights I was able to learn made it worth the challenge! The test is not easy, so you will need the time to study. I do believe this information as well as the suggested reading: book reviews are valuable. I appreciate the course being offered by the Institute.
