Working with Trauma and the Body

Cristina Mardirossian, LMFT

This event focuses on working with trauma (predominately sexual abuse) from a somatic perspective, and will provide you with a basic understanding of how to identify trauma and prepare your clients to process their traumas through the body.  Beginning with identifying trauma and its impact on the body, you will learn how to work with sensations held in the body, gestures, posture, movement, etc. and to bring balance back to the nervous system.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify at least three symptoms of how trauma shows up in the body.
  2. Describe two defense mechanisms that can be seen through the body.
  3. Identify three tools to help clients manage symptoms of hyper-arousal/hypo-arousal. 

Cristina Mardirossian is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified EMDR therapist in Pasadena, California. Cristina works in her private practice predominately with adult trauma survivors, particularly sexual abuse survivors and dissociative disorders.  She is trained in TF-CBT and Brainspotting, and Certified in Havening, EMDR, and the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM).
