American Hypnosis Association AHA Guest Speakers

Introduction to Somatic and Parts Work for Healing Trauma

Presented By: Johanna Hays

Johanna Hays

This presentation 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.
