Have you been interested in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy but would like to learn more? Are you looking for a way to incorporate a trauma-informed approach into your work? Training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy provides a way to work implicitly at a level beyond words.
Attend this free introduction — there will be information presented both about the training and the work. There will be video of the work and plenty of time to ask questions.
Do you ever struggle to help numb, disconnected clients who can’t feel emotion or explore inner experience? Do your clients ever get ‘stuck’ in their overwhelming emotions rather than resolving them?  Are they sometimes unable to act and, at other times, unable to inhibit self-destructive actions? Training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy provides a way to work implicitly at a level beyond words.
Therapists: expand your patients’ ability to tolerate affect and access implicit experience — help them overcome their fears and phobias of painful emotions! These are among the many clinical challenges addressed by training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-centered talking therapy for treating trauma and attachment issues.

Formerly known as the Lillstreet Loft, this small, second-floor space offers a versatile open layout and cool, contemporary furnishings on a beautifully polished hardwood floor. A mixture of artificial and window lighting make the space perfect for presentations that use A/V, as ours does! We are so glad to be hosting in this new space. You can see images and the general layout of the space here.
The Loft is located a convenient 3-5 minute walk from the Montrose Brown Line station. If you are using the Metra, the Loft is about .5 miles South of the station on the East side of Ravenswood (a split road), about 10 minutes walking distance.

The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training in Affect Regulation, Attachment and Trauma will take place SEPTEMBER 21, 2018 – APRIL 13, 2019 in Chicago, IL with Anne Westcott, MA, LICSW, and Rebeca Farca, MA.
This training presents a mindfulness-based somatic approach to traumatic experience and disrupted early attachment.  Participants will learn simple, body-oriented skills for addressing autonomic dysregulation, numbing and disconnected states, impulsivity and loss of judgment, and immobilization.  By helping patients to ‘read’ the story told by their physical responses and to try out new responses, they feel an increasingly stronger connection to self and a felt sense of inner safety.
Early applicant discounts will apply for all applications submitted by July 27th – space is limited, so don’t hesitate to reserve your spot by applying here:
