When the Body Speaks: An Introduction to Somatic Psychotherapy

Presenter:  Amy Gladstone, LCSW, Ph.D.


Many of the current clinical models of practice emphasize the role of present moment experience in therapeutic action.  The body contains the roots of past experience in present time.  When clinicians learn how to pay attention they discover that the body provides a new pathway to access hard-to-reach implicit material and an opportunity for profound experiences of healing.  In this workshop, Dr. Gladstone will give a brief introduction to somatic psychotherapy as it augments and deepens clinical practice. She will focus on techniques and demonstrate her work as a somatic psychotherapist using clinical examples.  Participants will leave with a sense of how to integrate information from the body into clinical talk therapy.


Amy Gladstone, LCSW, Ph.D., is a clinician, educator, supervisor, and workshop leader with over 25 years of clinical experience who presents locally and nationally on affect regulation, attachment and experiential methods. She is on the faculty of the Integrative Trauma Program of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies and the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. Certified in both Somatic Experiencing and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, trained in EMDR and IFS, Dr. Gladstone is an integrative psychotherapist. 

Learning Objectives: 

This workshop is designed to help participants

  • Identify the focus of somatic psychotherapy as the use of mindfulness to investigate and deepen experience in the present moment.
  • Describe the protocol for a somatic psychotherapy session.
  • Identify a few experiential interventions to use with clients to deepen clinical technique.
