Research in cognitive and affective neuroscience in the past twenty five years has clearly established the importance of embodying emotions for improving outcomes and treatment times in all therapeutic approaches. In the short presentation, Dr. Selvam will discuss how therapists can go about improving their practice in all therapy modalities through the practice of embodying emotions, with clinical examples.

About Raja

Dr. Raja Selvam, PhD, who has taught in over twenty five countries on six continents, is a licensed clinical psychologist from California, a senior trainer in Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing (SE) professional trauma training programs, and the developer of Integral Somatic Psychology (ISP), a science-backed, body-based, and emotion-focused complementary approach designed to reduce treatment times and improve diverse outcomes in all therapy modalities including existing body psychotherapy approaches. He is the author of the best-selling book The Practice of embodying emotions: A Guide for improving cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes.

His work is informed by older body psychotherapy systems of Reichian Therapy and Bioenergetic Analysis, newer body psychotherapy systems of Bodynamic Analysis and Somatic Experiencing, and bodywork systems of Postural Integration and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. His work is also inspired by Jungian and archetypal psychologies, Kleinian and intersubjective schools of psychoanalysis, affective neuroscience, quantum physics, yoga, Polarity Therapy, and Advaita Vedanta (a spiritual psychology from India). His website is www.integralsomaticpsychology.com.

Join Jan Winhall's group on the PVI (Polyvagal Institute) Community App for updates and discussion.

The Felt Sense Polyvagal Approach to Trauma & Addiction Group is a place for you to explore with others, through a polyvagal lens, the experiences of trauma and addiction. We are focusing on understanding addiction through the lens of the nervous system, as an adaptive response to maladaptive environments. Our group is growing in leaps and bounds indicating a hunger for change, for the kind of transformative change that polyvagal theory brings us. The group interacts  online as part of the PVI (Polyvagal Institute) Community App. Once a month the group meets live on Zoom for an hour of exploration and discussion with a guest presenter, in what we now call the Embodied Dialogue Series. 

Free to join the group, all welcome!
