Creative Strategies to Enhance Affect Regulation in Traumatized Clients
Presenter: Lisa Ferentz, LCSW-C, DAPA
 

Many clients who did not receive sustained secure attachment or were subjected to trauma, abuse, or neglect grapple with an inability to self-soothe or regulate emotional states in healthy ways.  In this workshop participants will be introduced to a number of creative treatment strategies designed to help traumatized clients develop affect regulation skills.  These strategies will help to promote safety, grounding, containment, self-soothing and emotional stabilization: all prerequisites that need to be installed and resourced before deeper trauma retrieval work is introduced in therapy.  Participants will learn about techniques that incorporate activation of mirror neurons, soothing breath work, resourcing with body movement, guided imagery, using art, collage and sand tray therapeutically, and simple flashback halting protocols.  Clients’ artwork and case studies will be incorporated into the training.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the connection between secure attachment and clients’ abilities to regulate their emotional arousal.
  • Understand why traumatized clients resist the establishment of safety in therapy and how therapists can creatively enhance external safety in sessions.
  • Describe and implement at least two strategies to help clients with containment and the avoidance of flooding.
  • Describe and implement at least three examples of somatic resourcing.
  • Describe and implement at least two breathing strategies to help with affect regulation and the activation of the parasympathetic system.
