Sensorimotor Psychotherapy pioneer and developer, Dr Pat Ogden explains how to use the wisdom of the body to address internalized misogyny. We are all familiar with the inequities that result from misogyny, such as violence against women, the gendered wage gap, lack of representation in positions of power, and so much more. However, the internalized misogyny that is so prevalent in patriarchal societies often goes unrecognized, while profoundly impacting women on both psychological and physical levels. A form of internalized oppression, internalized misogyny can lead women to distrust, discredit, shame or devalue themselves and other women and contribute to, if not cause, a plethora of body issues. In this recording, you’ll learn about the many faces of internalized misogyny and how to work with it in a clinical setting. In particular, you will learn about its impact on our relationships to our bodies, to other women, and on our unconscious tendency to adhere to gender stereotypes that can curtail our authenticity and limit our expression. Interventions from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy to address internalized misogyny in clinical practice by working with the body and with parts of the self will be illustrated.
