Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind & Body Awareness Series– Therapy Module
March 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Center for Strength is hosting a 4-part program, Body Keeps the Score- Do Series focusing on Brain, Mind & Body Awareness. We based this program on the modalities from the book, The Body Keeps the Score, by Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. The author shares a well-researched explanation of trauma, its causes, and potential therapeutic approaches. Our educational series will allow for additional discussions on ways to achieve healing from trauma. We will learn about brain science, therapies, movement, and storytelling in a group setting. While it is helpful to have read “The Body Keeps the Score”, it is not required.
Emotional healing can happen through practices like mindfulness, yoga, play and more. In each module throughout this series, we’ll focus on different healing ideologies that will help in your resilience journey.
Our Pillar of Strength- “Do” encourages our community to engage in activities that promote health and wellness. These programs are for our adult community. You have the option to come to one or all of the modules. They will help you pay attention to your own needs through different activities.
Internal family Systems with Kathleen Shook
Internal Family Systems (IFS) uses Family Systems theory—the idea that individuals cannot be fully understood in isolation from the family unit—to develop techniques and strategies to effectively address issues within a person’s internal community or family. This evidence-based approach assumes each individual possesses a variety of sub-personalities, or “parts,” and attempts to get to know each of these parts better to achieve healing.
By learning how different parts function as a system and how the overall system reacts to other systems and other people, people in therapy can often, with the help of a trained mental health professional, become better able to identify the roots of conflict, manage any complications arising, and achieve greater well-being.
