Webinar 1:

Pelvic De-Armouring. Presented by Katie Spataro. Hosted by Dr. Liam “Captain” Snowdon.

Pelvic Floor Fascia Unwinding: A trauma-informed approach to working with the root.

In this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to observe a demonstration of pelvic floor fascia unwinding followed by a Q&A with the practitioner and client. The demonstration will model client-directed, trauma-informed touch working with the physical and energetic aspects of the “root” of the body, or the floor of the pelvis which contains the genitals along with multiple layers of muscles and connective tissue. This practice can be beneficial for working with pelvic pain and nervous system regulation. The class demo will include coordinating movement, breath and visualizations for release.

Webinar 2:

Using Somatic Experiencing Trauma Resolution with Clients. Presented by Tracy Montgomery. Hosted by Amanda Wattie.

Many of our clients have experienced trauma related to their sexuality, and trauma almost always involves a boundary violation.

As touch practitioners, it’s especially important that we understand the physiology of trauma and recognize when a client presents with a dis-regulated or traumatized nervous system in order to prevent further harm.

In this webinar, we will draw upon the body-based Somatic Experiencing® approach to trauma to learn how to identify trauma in our clients and how to avoid the common mistakes sexuality professionals make.
