Treating Collective Trauma with Hakomi: Listening to the Body



The Hakomi Method is a multidimensional somatic approach to deep healing rooted in an understanding of the silent language of the body. In the moment-by-moment unfolding of their somatic awareness, clients learn to access the unconscious core beliefs that shape their response to trauma, even when it’s woven within the larger context of collective trauma. Discover how the therapist’s own somatic awareness can help clients untangle the complex area where individual and collective trauma meet, and learn techniques to stay attuned and somatically grounded to effectively work with trauma. In this recording, you’ll explore: 

  • The key Hakomi concepts of applied mindfulness and somatic awareness to help clients change rigid mental models 
  • Attachment- and compassion-based skills that facilitate a gentle inquiry into the body’s messages 
  • How to apply gentle interventions that can yield clients’ emotional defences and trauma identities  
  • How to stay self-regulated, somatically grounded, and open-hearted when working with trauma-sensitive processes
