About This Workshop

Becoming Safely Embodied

Dealing with trauma requires cultivation of self-compassion which has been validated with rapidly expanding research demonstrating how self-compassion provides a foundation for wisdom, strength and courage.

 

Cultivating self-compassion is the emotional attitude that buffers suffering. It forms a bridge between attachment theory and traditional meditation allowing us to be with the pain of life without separation. It can’t just be a cognitive understanding of compassion; in dealing with trauma it requires compassion to be embodied.

 

This experiential workshop will support you in building the courageous mindset of self-compassion, giving you a felt experience that you can easily translate into your work with your own clients. The result of cultivating self-compassion is a greater emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, forgive ourselves, and respond to ourselves and others with care and respect, and be fully human.

 

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone, even those who didn’t receive enough affection in childhood or who find it embarrassing to be kind to oneself. It’s especially important in psychotherapy balancing out the suffering of life. This experiential workshop will give you theory and practices to enhance emotional wellbeing, reduce anxiety and depression, maintains healthy habits and help form better relationships.

About the Speaker

Deirdre Fay, LICSW

Deirdre Fay, LICSW, has decades of experience exploring the intersection of trauma, attachment, yoga, and meditation. Having meditated since the 70s and lived in a yoga ashram for six years in the 80s and 90s, Deirdre brings a unique perspective to being in the body. In the 90s, Deirdre was asked to teach yoga and meditation to those in the dissociative unit at McLean Hospital. Having amassed skill sets in trauma treatment (as a supervisor under the guidance of Bessel van der Kolk at the Trauma Center), attachment theory (13 years of training with Daniel Brown), and body therapy (as a trainer in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy), Deirdre now teaches an integrative approach which Chris Germer calls “a radically positive approach to healing trauma”. Deirdre is the author of three books, including the recent Becoming Safely Embodied and Attachment-Based Yoga & Meditation for Trauma Recovery. She’s also one of the co-authors of Attachment Disturbances for Adults, and chapters in Neurobiological Treatments of Traumatic Dissociation.
