Revolutionizing Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model
This self-paced, six-hour course will present a new way of understanding and treating trauma and addiction based on my book Treating Trauma and Addiction with the Felt Sense Polyvagal Model™ (Routledge, 2021). The model is based on the latest research in the areas of neuroscience and trauma treatment. The work of Stephen Porges, Dan Siegel, Bessel van der Kolk, Judith Herman, Marc Lewis, and Eugene Gendlin form the theoretical and evidence-based foundation of the model.
Trauma and addiction responses are increasing day by day as people cry out for help. We desperately need a fresh approach that treats the trauma of addiction where it lives; in the body. The fields of trauma and addiction have developed separately, yet when we treat one we are very often working with the other. And the state of addiction is traumatic in and of itself. So, how do we work with both? In this course we will explore the intersection of trauma and addiction and how to address both with an embodied approach.

Integrative Focusing Therapy
The IFT training program is a two-year online training program leading to certification as a Focusing-oriented therapist (FOT).
It gives you a solid understanding and practical knowledge of Focusing-oriented therapy and stimulates you to organically develop your own style.
This program puts Focusing-oriented therapy within the context of neuroscience, trauma-informed therapy, addiction, as well as depth psychology.
It relies heavily on experiential practice to develop clinical skills such as deep listening, felt-sensing, moment-by-moment attention to process, self-regulation and co-regulation.
It is a creative environment in which trainees grow by integrating their professional and personal experiences into their own unique style.
