4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction to Sensorimotor Therapy, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trauma and the Body: A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) (Hardcover)
This is a good introduction to the theory and practice of Sensorimotor Therapy which is now regarded as an important contribution to trauma therapy. This approach to trauma therapy diverts the client from the story, emotions and beliefs to initially focusing on the sensations and movement aspects of memory which reduces the chances of clients being de-stabilised by traumatic memories. With developing mindfulness about internal sensations the client may sense defensive movements which may have been inhibited during the trauma experience. By acting out the movement the client may experience a sense of triumph over the trauma along with new positive beliefs about himself. This is an exciting development in trauma therapy and I eagerly await the next book by Ogden and Fisher due out hopefully in April.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most effective therapy for trauma., 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trauma and the Body: A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) (Hardcover)
At this time, this is the only book describing Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, although Pat Ogden is currently working on another. This approach, based solidly in current neuroscience research, works at three levels: body, emotion and cognition. This uses a whole new level of information for getting in touch with and resolving distressing memories in a gentle, non-retraumatising way. As a counsellor/therapist working with survivors of childhood trauma, I had been taught nothing about how to avoid leaving my clients dysregulated at the end of their sessions, and neither had any of my colleagues. When I attended a talk about using this method for trauma I knew it was what I was looking for. Having undertaken the training, my clients have progressed exponentially, learning skills to manage their distress and feeling safer to do memory work.
