TCTSY 20-HOUR TRAINING
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY)
Provincetown, MA; September 20th-22nd, 2019
Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an evidence-based adjunctive treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). A program of the Center for Trauma and Embodiment (CFTE) at JRI, it is the only empirically validated yoga-based practice of its kind to have met the criteria for inclusion in the National Registry of Evidenced-based Programs and Policies (NREPP) in 2017.
This 20-hour (16 hours in person; 4 hours self-study) foundational training will emphasize the core components of the practice and process of trauma-sensitive yoga, and how they relate to any anti-oppressive and trauma-informed work. Designed for anyone who is interested in deepening their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex trauma, this training will review the significant effects of trauma on the brain, body, and relationships (personal, professional and systemic), as well as the psychological and neuroscientific underpinnings of the TCTSY model. Participants may include, but are not limited to: yoga instructors, social workers, mental health clinicians, educators, activists, bodyworkers and healers, or other health care professionals.
Experiential in design, participants will gain specific tools to both practice and facilitate trauma-sensitive movement and breath practices vital to the healing process of complex trauma. This training is intended to support participants in expanding their current clinical or movement-based practice to incorporate some of the TCTSY methodology, focusing on movements and language that actively share power and agency with practitioners. Key aspects of how to build a trauma-sensitive yoga class or program will also be explored.
While this training qualifies as the prerequisite to apply for the 300-hour TCTSY Certification Program with the Center for Trauma and Embodiment,
there are NO prerequisites to attend this training.
This training can stand alone as a general framework to apply within diverse contexts (clinical, medical, educational, humanitarian, personal inquiry, daily life, etc.).
ALL are welcome.
