Becoming Safely Embodied: An Experiential Workshop for Therapists

Meghan Reilly, LCSW


Deepening trauma-informed work though a personal exploration of the Becoming Safely Embodied skills


Becoming Safely Embodied is a group experience that is designed to empower individuals with a history of trauma on their healing path. The group experience is a complement to individual psychotherapy and is informed by our current understanding of the neurobiology of trauma.  Our Becoming Safely Embodied groups help individuals begin to build awareness of their moment to moment experience, and increase their capacity for a sense of safety in the present.   

This workshop is for psychotherapists (and other mental health professionals) who are interested in deepening their understanding of this trauma-informed work, through a personal exploration of the Becoming Safely Embodied practices.  

This day long experience, with a blend of teaching and personal exploration, will explore the skills of meditation, recognizing triggers, interrupting old patterns, identifying thoughts, feelings and body sensations, and working with one’s sense of boundary in the world.
