Restoring the Whole Child: Yoga-Based Psychotherapy for Children and Adolescents Who Have Experienced Trauma
When: July 14, 2014
Workshop Description: The neurobiological effects of childhood abuse and neglect are well documented. Among other implications, these negative effects can reduce the development of self-regulatory capacities which in turn inhibits social and emotional functioning and makes traditional mental health interventions less effective. Clinicians at the Family Center at Kennedy Krieger Institute developed a protocol for the Yoga-Based Psychotherapy Group (YBPG) to address deficits in self-regulatory capacities using principles from yoga and movement therapy. This 14 week trauma-informed group intervention utilizes yoga and movement techniques with boys and girls, ages 8-12, to increase self-awareness, promote improved self-regulation, self-esteem and pro-social behaviors. This presentation will discuss Yoga as a complimentary alternative treatment and identify how its principles can be used to provide trauma informed treatment for children and adolescents. This will include the Yoga-Based Psychotherapy Group (YBPG) protocol. Presentation is experiential and will include lecture, practice exercises and discussion. The workshop will simulate an actual YBPG session. No previous yoga experience is required and movement is optional.
