Recovery Out Loud

Nov 2 2021 • 1 hr 1 min

In this one-hour webinar, our panel of experts define somatic therapy and discuss the theory behind it. We’ll explore how the mind, body, spirit, and emotions are all related and connected to each other. The goal of somatic therapy is to help free stress and pain that is preventing our clients from fully engaging in their lives. We also discuss root causes of trauma, addiction, the intersection and treatment options.


  • Define somatic therapy for PTSD and trauma-informed care.
  • Apply practical skills to help clients self-regulate emotional distress and manage physiological symptoms.
  • Describe somatic resources that promote nervous system regulation.
  • Learn how to move clients through the recovery process by incorporating somatic therapy for trauma.
