AHA Calendar of Events – Live on Zoom

Introduction to Somatic and Parts Work for Healing Trauma - Live on Zoom

Johanna Hays

Presented By: Johanna Hays

Dr. Johanna Hays, one of HMI’s new instructors for the AOS Degree Program, will focus on modalities that highlight communication between the individual and their symptoms, reactions, emotions, and protective patterns. We will explore the importance of differentiating between historic reactions and current ones and discuss ways to create meaningful healing.

A brief introduction to Internal Family Systems (Schwartz) and Parts work, Somatic Experiencing (Levine), and the Window of Tolerance (Siegel) will be discussed. We will focus on how these theories interface to allow for healing, understanding, and resolution of trauma.

This presentation will conclude with a short experiential exercise to teach tools for reducing anxiety, reduction of traumatic activation, and nervous system regulation.


Important Note: This free AHA Guest Lecture provides HMI Graduates and Active Resident Students a preview into HMI’s NEW AOS Degree Program.
