50-hour Trauma Healing Training – Developmental Trauma & Vital Essence Breathwork

Developmental Trauma & Vital Essence Breathwork

A part of a  250-Hr Trauma Healing Facilitator  Training Program
“Accredited by American Association of Drugless Practitioners”

July 11th to 17th 2020 – Portugal

This 50-hour module has it’s focus on the understanding of developmental trauma exploring Bodynamic technique and how to apply it on Trauma healing work.

During this training we will meet the character structures and defence systems.
The core belief of the Bodynamic System is that the human being is social motivated by a deep drive toward contact and connection with others, without losing pride and dignity, seeking what we term Mutual Connection.

Using the body as a resource we assist in building new psychological competencies in an individual that has been missed during childhood development. In building these new resources often it results in a profound regain of self that was difficult to initially imagine.

The way that Bodynamic works the developmental traumas rests on the Functional Anatomy (muscles), the Character Structures, the Ego Functions and the Ego Aspects.

As long as you are alive you use many defence mechanisms, some more conscious, some less, they all have different effect, often from different character structures. Knowing which character structure developed yourself, you will have the options of how to contact a person coming from this place. It can be your partner, client or child.

The Training is open for different professionals, and suitable for all who is interested in learning and developing more skills to work with developmental trauma issues.
